Heroes at the Paley Festival…Kinda

Heroes Cast

Let me first start off by saying, that I wasn’t lucky enough to attend the Heroes panel at the Paley Festival. Heroes was one of the first events to sell out, I sadly wasn’t able to snag any tickets, but that didn’t stop me from seeing the cast up close. While the rest of the event goers were standing behind a make shift security line as the cast walked the press line, I was actually able to get right up with the press. I wasn’t working the line myself but being friendly with those who are legit press has its privileges. So I got to listen in as E!’s TV Diva, Kristin Veitch, interviewed all the stars. It was a great experience for me…thanks E! peeps, I’ll be a “producer” for you anytime 🙂

Before the cast could actually make it to the press line they had to come right by me…I mean right by me, as in I had to move back so they could pass. So what can I tell you?

Well, first off Ali Larter (Niki) is just as stunning in person as she is on the show. But the girl is skinny with a capital “S”. Her legs were like toothpicks. I’m not saying she looked bad because she didn’t, but the camera really does add 10 lbs.

Milo Ventimiglia (Peter) is a cutie patootie, but a little too short for my taste. I like ’em tall. I know he’s Peter Petrelli now, but he’ll always be Jess from Gilmore Girls to me.

Hayden Panettiere (Claire) is a very beautiful girl whom they put WAY too much makeup on, on this particular night. I’m sure it was for the cameras at all, but it almost took away from how naturally pretty and cute she is. Anyone else feel old seeing Hayden all grown up? I heard through the grapevine that she is still with Laguna Beach’s Stephen. WOW! Is that even possible? And does she call him Ste-phen like KCavs did? Hmm, things that keep me up at night 😉

Adrian Pasdar (Nathan) is sexy in his blue jeans baby. He makes the salt and pepper hair work for him…yum! I’m glad I didn’t get to interview him because I probably would have just wanted to talk about the Dixie Chicks the whole time. Sorry, but I love the Chicks!!

Noah Gray-Cabey (Micah) is too cute for words. I really wanted to scoop him up and carry him around on my back all night. I see a Noah/Jaden Smith buddy flick in the future. He seemed so well spoken. I usually hate child actors (they creep me out), but he looked and sounded like a little kid, albeit a smart one. Adorable.

The rest of the cast came through and I was pretty excited. For those of you who listen to the GMMR/DuckyxDale TV podcast, you know that I’m a few episodes behind in Heroes. Ugh, I know. But I surprised myself how many of the characters I knew and recognized. I was bummed that I wasn’t there when Masi Oka came through (he’s another cutie), and I left the press line just as one of my favorites of all time, Greg Grunberg, walked through. I mean…Greg Grunberg! Felicity! Alias! He did walk past me so I saw him up close but it was just for a second.

The event got underway, and there were a LOT of fans who had waited in line forever who were turned away because there were just no extra tickets. And dude, some of those people were scary…sorry, but they were.

    I still think of Hayden as Lizzie on Guiding Light. Which she was on when she was, oh, six or so.

    Yes. I am definitely feeling old right about now.

    Sorry you didn’t get to go inside and see the Heroes Paley Fest. But I’m still jealous you got to see the cast. 🙂 I like how the moderator (do all the PF moderators tend to suck??) at least asked a question or two that ALL the cast could answer. Why couldn’t the lady at The Office one do that? Leslie, Phyllis, Craig, and several others never said a word. A good moderator lets every one of the GUESTS OF HONOR feel that they’re important and meant to be there. Oh well. Maybe you’ll get to moderate some of these next time, Kathie.

    GMMR, you totally rock. Heroes is my second favorite show on right now (right behind The Office, of course), and I love any and all new information about this show! I can’t wait until you see the most recent episodes because they blew my mind.

    I have to concur with you about Adrian Pasdar. Although Nathan is probably my favorite Hero, if I were to interview Adrian, I’d do nothing but ask Dixie Chicks questions (I
