The Father From “Heroes” Is Pissed People Thought He Was Making Time With His TV Daughter

This guy is bent. You would be, too. He’s probably all people are gonna think I’m scum and I haven’t had this good of a role since I was the gay son on “Dynasty”! Jack Coleman plays Mr. Bennett on “Heroes” and some shots from the set that were released looked like he was tongue-lashing Hayden Panettiere, who plays his daughter. They weren’t and he wants you to know.

Let me squash immediately whatever misguided notions anyone may have gotten from a picture taken a couple of days ago of Hayden and me on the set. There were two papparazzi hanging around all day across the street taking pictures of Hayden’s every move. In the scene we were shooting Claire (Hayden) kisses her father (me) on the cheek. The angle at which the photo was taken created in a very misleading image. In one picture I am in short sleeves, that was a rehearsal, in the other I’m in a jacket, that was during a take.

That’s it. Please go no further with this nonsense.


Jack Coleman

He’s got the stern Dad thing down.
