Wow...congrats to her. The next news I was expecting to hear on her was her returning to Days, getting casted on Y&R/B&B (I can't see ABC picking her up), or her getting casted in an indie picture.

I will admit that I never thought someone would see her talent outside of daytime but I'm happy I was wrong, even if this is just a recurring role on a very vulnerable show right now. I'm done on Heroes but I will give it another whirl just to see her.
How is Heroes vulnerable? I admit it struggled last season but it regained it's footing late in the spring and the WTF ending will no doubt have fans returning to find out what's happening. The ratings have dropped off but it's not close to cancellation at all. They have a major presence online with their comic book site along with it's own universe.

I love Heroes because of it's potential but sadly it tends to disappoint more than please. I love Melvin is on there but this is a show where I find most of the female characters to be all horrifically written or acted (except for Angela and Mrs. Bennett) and would be fine if they cut the entire remaining female cast and brought in new females (again, except for Angelga and Mrs. Bennett). What bothers me is Melvin will be acting opposite Claire who I liked for maybe 5 minutes last season and for none of 2nd season.

Anyway, I just hope they don't screw up her character and make her another Maya/Molly/Janice/Daphne/Tracy/Claire.
