Masi Oka on Heroes

Great interview!

Q: Now Masi, I was wondering was there anything new in the future in the second season concerning your character-- or anyone else's -- or even an event -- that surprised you?
Oka: Oh gosh--so many things. Every week's always a surprise. The writers have – before actors, we're big fans of the show. And we just can't wait to read the scripts. And that is even more so in Season 2. They keep -- you think, "Oh, how can they really top...?" Well, we're now trying to top, I guess, last season. How can they top, like, the week before? It'sjust amazing because the writers always find a way to surprise us and put smiles on everyone's faces. It just puts us on the edge of our seats, just wanting to know what happens next. I'm going to leave you wanting to know what happens next.

Q: Hey, you mentioned the possibility of a "Heroes" feature film with the "Heroes" branching out into so many different mediums.
Oka: That was a joke on my part.

Q: Yeah, I realize it was a joke. But it almost seems like a natural place for this to end up at some point. Is it anything you guys have considered or discussed in any way?
Oka: Well, with what "The Simpsons Movie" did, Universal might get some ideas.

Q: After 14 years.
Oka: There you go. If you want a "Heroes" movie, please keep us afloat for another 14 seasons.

Hey, check out Jason Badower's blog: - he's an artist working on the Heroes series. His work is really impressive. And he's a lovely guy, too.
