Ok, here’s the deal. I loved Heroes. I even put up with season 2 and most of last season. One of the things that actually kept me in there was the notion that Bryan Fuller was back on board and the show would undo some of the damage it did by adding too many characters. That brings us to the latest casting announcement… Heroes is now in talks to bring sci-fi veteran Rick Worthy to the cast.

THR is reporting Worthy is in negotiations to recur on NBC’s “Heroes” next season, playing Matt Parkman’s (Greg Grunberg) new partner: an experienced and capable Los Angeles cop and someone that Matt can lean on for advice.

Some of the other shows you might recognize Worth from include: Enterprise,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Dark Angel” and “Odyssey 5.”
