It’s not exactly a Pushing Daisies resurrection, but I’ll gladly take it (and so should you): Swoosie Kurtz is reuniting with her former Daisies boss, Bryan Fuller, on Heroes!
Kurtz’s spokesperson confirms to me exclusively that the actress has inked a deal to guest star in an April episode of Heroes written by, yep, Fuller himself!
“Bryan wrote the part specifically for her,” says Kurtz’ spokesperson of her character, Millie, an old society friend of Angela Petrelli’s. “It’s a really fun role.”
As of now, Kurtz is signed for one episode, but there’s definite recurring potential — particularly if NBC renews Heroes for a fourth season (as many expect it will).
Heroes‘ Fuller-infused fourth volume, “Fugitives,” kicks off on Feb. 2.
Meanwhile, there’s still no news as to when or where ABC will air Daisies final three episodes — and, in this case, no news is definitely bad news.
Not cool, ABC. Not cool at all.
However, the Kurtz/Fuller reunion on Heroes? Very cool. You with me on both counts? Sound off in the comments!
