Finally, some good Heroes news: The embattled NBC drama has snapped up an Everwood alum!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Justin Baldoni, who played Emily VanCamp’s ripped med student beau on the late, great WB classic, is joining the cast as Alex, a Southern California surfer dude who works at a comic book store.

Baldoni will appear in a minimum of two episodes.

It’s unclear what connection, if any, Baldoni’s Andy will have to the comic book geeks played by Seth Green and Breckin Meyer. But I think it’s safe to say comic books play a key role in the upcoming “Fugitives” arc.
