‘Heroes’ Star Wishes He Had Midas Touch

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – He may have the ability to stop time in the new NBC drama Heroes, but cast member Masi Oka says he would rather be able to turn everything he touches into gold.

The actor admits he would have loved having the Midas touch as a kid, so he could spend more time down at the local video arcade.

Oka says he only received a quarter for his weekly allowance which wasn’t “nearly enough” because it only bought him one game.

Instead he had to rely on mooching off of his “rich friends.”

As he puts it, “If I could have just picked up a stone and turned it to gold, that would be great.”

A golden touch isn’t the only talent Oka wishes he had – he says he wouldn’t mind being able to read the show creator’s mind so he could figure out whether or not there’s a love interest for him in the works.

Heroes debuts September 25 on NBC.
