THR is reporting that Madeline Zima will be joining the cast of NBC’s Heroes for a multi-episode arc next season. known mostly for her role on the show Californication, she’ll be joining the cast as Gretchen, an edgy outsider and college roommate to Claire.

I’m going to go out on a limb and make the guess that she’ll end up with some sort of power too.

Outside of heroes Zima is next set to appear in the feature “My Own Love Song” opposite Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker.
