More on Eccleston’s Heroes appearance from Ausiello

From the man who broke the story, more news about Christopher Eccleston’s forthcoming appearance in Heroes:

Question: I almost screamed when I read in last week’s AA that Christopher Eccleston is going to be on Heroes in January. Is he going to be a regular on the show or just making a guest appearance?— Sara Anne

He’s a full-fledged series regular. And get this: I hear producers originally wanted him for another extremely pivotal role, but at the time, Eccleston was either uninterested or unavailable.
