NOW COME ON, DON'T GIVE ME THAT ATTITUDE...
According to TV Guide:
"Question: Your superpower is super scoop. Save the world and give us some Heroes poop.— Sarah
Ausiello: Fanboys, prepare to piddle yourself. Christopher Eccleston — the original Dr. Who from the current Sci Fi/BBC series — is joining the cast in January in a really super (tee-hee) role. Speaking of cool casting, wait until you see who's ******* ****'s ****. You're going to flip."
Christopher Eccleston, probably the best-Doctor-ever, in a US drama? Stranger things have happened. It's a neat thought how fate has switched John Barrowman and Chris Eccleston around: one a (practically) American actor working in a (practically) British show; the other a Brit now working in America.
And we love them both (especially JB!).
Good luck Chris.
Now, is a Torchwood/Heroes crossover out of the question?*
*Relax boys and girls, I'm joking!
