Like so many eclipses and/or Petrelli-based nuclear explosions, Heroes Reborn is fast approaching and there is nothing we can do about it. But you know what would get a lot of us on board with the NBC series reboot? If they brought back Claude Rains, AKA The Invisible Man — AKA Christopher Eccleston. Yeah. that’d do it.
We know that former Heroes stars Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere are not so keen on returning to the franchise, which is putting out a new stand-alone miniseries in 2015 that will supposedly have “some familiar faces” in it. But Eccleston is totally on board for a return.
“Of course, yeah, I had a great time on the show!” Eccleston told MTV News at a red carpet event for his new HBO series, The Leftovers. “Yeah. I’d always be interested. That was a great character. I love that guy.”
