Coleman’s recent credits include the Disney Channel telepic “Cow Belles,” as well as guest stints on “Entourage,” “CSI: Miami” and “Nip/Tuck.” He was a regular on ABC drama “Stephen King’s Kingdom Hospital” and the Lifetime laffer “Oh Baby,” and played Steven Carrington on “Dynasty.”

Besides Grunberg, Panettiere and Coleman, “Heroes” also stars Ali Larter, Tawny Cypress, Santiago Cabrera, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Masi Oka, Milo Ventimiglia, Adrian Pasdar, Noah Gray-Cabey and Leonard Roberts.
