Former Babylon 5 star Bruce Boxleitner will reportedly join the cast of Heroes for the third season.

TV Guide claims that the 57-year-old American actor will play a "top-secret recurring role that was originally going to be modeled after Senator John McCain... [and will] be sharing scenes with a female series regular".

Boxleitner is best known for taking the lead role in the second to fifth seasons of science fiction show Babylon 5, in which he played the charismatic but stubborn commander John Sheridan.
