He also wrote the screenplay for Can't Help Falling.
I thought they might do some sort of mini-series or something to wrap it up.
It wasn’t long after that that I first got a text from Tim [Kring] saying, “Let’s talk sometime.” And then, he followed that up with a phone call, a little bit later on. The conversation that I had with Tim was in late March or early April, a year almost to the day that we started shooting again.
We had a nice, long conversation where he told me how he imagined things to go and that he wanted me to be a part of it. Early after the show’s cancellation, there was talk of a movie or a follow-up of some sort.
That’s a trick that I’m glad I didn’t have to try to perform. When you first met Noah Bennet, he was being touted as the face of evil. He’s not the true believer that he was, back in the day when he was working for the company, and then he was completely disillusioned by the fact that they were coming after his daughter.
Noah is a little older, a little wiser, and he’s definitely on the side of the EVOs, as we now call them, which we didn’t in the first series. Noah Bennet is the eyes and ears of the audience this time, catching everyone up on what’s happened in the past while discovering what’s going on in the present.
In theater, he won a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for his performance in Bouncers, and an additional nomination for the play Stand-Up Tragedy.
