Masi Oka Knights Super Fan

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Apparently, Heroes star Masi Oka now has the power to knight people.

On Heroes, Oka’s character Hiro Nakamura has the ability to teleport and manipulate time. In real life, uber-fans believe he has much higher powers.

Oka recalls a time he attended a sci-fi convention and was chased down by a die-hard fan.

He felt the fan “briskly speeding up” behind him until the two were full-on sprinting down the hall.

When they stopped, the fan – wearing a Hiro Nakamura katana – “fell to his knees” and presented the sword to Oka.

He adds, “He asked me to be noble and knight him, which was really weird. I did my best, but had no idea what I was doing.”

Oka notes that the fan encounter was particularly strange because knighting is done in England, and he and Hiro are Japanese.

The fourth season of Heroes premieres Monday (Sep. 21) on NBC.
