Rick Worthy Joining Heroes Cast

Former “Battlestar Galactica” star Rick Worthy is in negotiations to play a recurring role on NBC’s “Heroes” next season, playing Matt Parkman’s (Greg Grunberg) new partner: an experienced and capable Los Angeles cop and someone that Matt can lean on for advice.

He joins several other new “Heroes” cast additions for next season, fellow recurring Robert Knepper and Madelina Zima.

Worthy is a sci-fi veteran, having appeared on such series as “Enterprise,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Dark Angel” and “Odyssey 5.”
