THR is reporting that Ernie Hudson, Star of Ghostbusters and the Crow will be joining the cast NBC’s Heroes as a Captain Lubbock, a Baltimore detective.

“Heroes” marks a return to the police beat for Hudson, who also played a detective in a recurring role on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.” He also played a senior deputy on ABC’s dramedy “10-8: Officers on Duty.”

Hudson is joining the cast after finishing off his latest movie, the prequel to Smokin’ Aces.

While fans felt a little let down by the last season of Heroes, this season is looking to pull out the stops with Ray Park, an evil circus run by T-Bag from Prison Break and a little lesbian action for the cheerleader.
