It was revealed a while back that Seth Green and Breckin Meyer would be appearing in the upcoming third season of Heroes, but details about their appearance remained scarce. Entertainment Weekly managed to catch up with Green to ask him about his role on the drama, and while he remained elusive about what his role would be on the show, he did discuss it a bit.

"They have a first page that says, like, 'Keep our secrets,'" Green says. But Green did reveal that the new facial hair he was sporting was for the show. "We're starting on set Monday. That's what this whole beard is for."

Green also admitted to his love of the series. "I'm a really big fan of the show," he says, "and I kind of begged for a long time to see if there was anything I could do."

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.
