According to I09 , E! Online’s Kristen Dos Santos, who started the rumour that a high profile Heroes actor wanted out in the first place, has revealed that not one but two of the show’s stars are trying to extricate themselves from their contracts – Ali Larter and Hayden Panettierre. To tell the truth, while the loss of either would be a great shame, one thing the show could do with is a bit of streamlining. There are too many characters now with not enough to do. Culling might be a kindness.
