He said, “I’ve been in touch with Tim [Kring, Heroes’ creator] and he told me they were doing this and we left the door open for me to be involved, the trouble is really my availability.”
The actor continued, “I don’t know that it would really even be possible. And it’s a challenge for me because that experience and role and opportunity really changed my life completely and sent me on a path that I might not have otherwise have been on, but at the same time I’m very interested in forward momentum. I’m very interested in expanding and defying people’s expectations of me.”
Quinto concluded, “I don’t know that going back to such a definitely iconic character would necessarily do that. So it’s a larger question that I haven’t had to answer because no one’s actually given me an offer. We’ll see. I’m glad they’re doing it and I know that whether or not I’m involved that the fans will enjoy it.”
What do you think? Would you like to see Quinto return as Sylar? Would you be satisfied with just a cameo of some kind?
