During a Q&A with Sendhil Ramamurthy the subject arose. If there was going to be a Heroes movie and can Christopher Gorham (his new costar at Covert Affairs) be in it?
Sendhil Ramamurthy answered: “Can Gorham be in it? You know what, if there’s a Heroes movie, I’m guaranteeing that we’ll get Gorham in it. Right here, you heard it here first. I don’t know if there’s going to be a Heroes movie. I’d love for there to be one. I think that it would be great for the fans to have the story wrapped up properly because that finale was a season finale; that was not a series finale and I feel like we owe it to the fans who were incredibly loyal and supportive of us through all the ups and downs of Heroes, it would be nice to do it for them to have some sort of closure.
I don’t know if it’s going to happen. If I’m being 100% honest, I don’t see how it can, just scheduling-wise it’s going to be really, really difficult (Remember to check out Covert Affairs, his new show on USA Network. Great new show). But if anybody can do it Tim Kring will pull it together somehow.
Oh, good. Now I’m going to have people from NBC calling me saying, “What the … are you doing?” I’m going to be getting e-mails from Tim Kring in about five minutes. My BlackBerry is going to light up.
And then he was asked to explain a little about the bearded Sendhil Ramamurthy we see in this post, and if it was a plotline for a new season of Heroes or even a Heroes Movie
“There was a whole storyline that I kind of pitched for Dr. Suresh to the writers of Heroes and I’m not going to go into it. It involved being a mountain man with a grisly beard and I thought it was really fun and cool. They didn’t and I showed up on the set and they were like, “Shave immediately.” And that’s kind of what happened. And I actually did press where I said that the beard was part of the story before they wrote it so that they would be forced to write it and they so weren’t forced to write anything. They’re like, “Sendhil, go to make up and have Wendy shave you. That’s it.”
What do you think? Do you want it to be a Heroes Movie? What role do you think Christopher Gorham could play in a potential Heroes Movie?
