Hero Worship: Hiro Nakamura

Heroes' Hiro Nakamura

Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura: This Heroes Hero is a Tokyo nonconformist computer/anime enthusiast who develops a way to pierce the space-time continuum and move back in time through sheer will power.

If you haven't seen Heroes yet, when it goes into rerun or comes out on DVD you must see this, fantastic show!

Did you know that Masi Oka, the actor who plays Hiro, used to work as a special effects guy at Industrial Light & Magic? Apparently, he still gets called back to Skywalker Ranch on occasion to do freelance SFX work. In other words, he has hardcore geek credentials.

Full "Heroes" episodes are available for free on I missed the first set of shows and caught up online before they aired the most recent batch. It was a pleasure to be able to get all caught up with actual episodes rather than looking for (possibly tainted) information online.

BTW, I love the Bettie image used in your new banner. It seems more 'real' than her more common images. Don't ask me to explain why. That's just my first impression.

Finally, I found a link for which I thought you might find some small use, though I realize it's not specifically your cup o' tea.

I have a Google alert for "Speed Racer". The alert found the site because of Christina Ricci who is set to play Trixie in the upcoming film.
