Thats what actor Adrian Pasdar has discovered while filming the upcoming NBC series, Heroes, which concerns a group of people who each discover their own unique super powers.
Pasdar plays an aspiring politician who has the ability to fly and he admits fear was a factor while filming those airborne sequences.
In his words, We did them with the people who set up the aerial stunts for Fear Factor. It was just me, [cast member] Milo Ventimiglia, and were up five stories and Im on one cable and hes on the other.
Although Pasdar found the flight sequences exhilarating, it wasnt what attracted him to the series, it was the politics.
Pasdar who is married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines says he sees his character as Kennedy-esque.
As he puts it, Hes been groomed to be a leader since he was young and feels hes entitled to it and deserves it. Its going to be fascinating to see how he reconciles his passion for politics with his ability to fly.
Heroes debuts September 25 on NBC.
