Seth Green and Breckin Meyer, the creators of Robot Chicken, are heading to Heroes. According to Entertainment Weekly's Mike Ausiello, the two will be taking on the role of comic-book geeks - which will no doubt be a major stretch for the pair.

Their characters will be a set of Atlanta-based comic-book fans who cross paths with, and possibly serve as advisors to one of the Heroes.

The characters played by Green and Meyer will recur for at least several episodes this season.

Heroes is an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. The show airs Monday nights on NBC. The new season begins September 22.
