The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Toru Uchikado.
Newcomer Toru Uchikado makes his television debut in the epic 13-episode event series “Heroes Reborn” from creator/executive producer Tim Kring, who also imagined the critically acclaimed 2006 “Heroes” series. Premiering September 24 on NBC, the series chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. Toru plays ‘Ren Shimosawa,’ a young Japanese gamer who’s storyline unfolds as he joins ‘Miko’ (played by Kiki Sukezane) on her journey of being a “Hero.”
MORE ABOUT TORU
The Japanese actor was born in New Jersey, but moved back to Japan as a young baby. Raised in Yokahomo, Japan, Toru grew up watching American movies and became fascinated with the industry. With Japanese as his primary language, Toru came to the states to study English and Business and learned to speak English at the age of 21. Uchikado returned to the states in 2011 (Los Angeles) to study acting—a passion he discovered while taking classes in college. Toru’s first major acting role will be this Fall as he plays ‘Ren Shimosawa’ on NBC”s “Heroes Reborn.” He hopes to be a bridge between Japan and the United States.
The Heroes and Heroines in the media today take all shapes and forms. Aside from Police, Firemen and Military who sign up to be in harm’s way, some are ordinary people who rise to meet extraordinary situations.
Always more visible are the fictional characters portrayed by Hollywood celebrities; from The Incredibles to James Bond, from comic book superheroes to cinematic heroics, we are awed and entertained. But what of celebrity mis-named heroes such as athletes – are their efforts heroic- or just inspiring…as well as entertaining?
Ancient Greek and Roman History was so inspired by heroics that gods were created who not only had great power but were also greatly flawed. In today’s world we bandy about the term hero without seemingly understanding the meaning of the word. Football players, basketball stars, actors, musicians…all are referred to and refer to each other as heroes.

We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina." Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.
We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After." What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now? How have their lives changed. What is new and interesting for them?
All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.
As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed. People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.
What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.
Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.
