NBC has cast one of the stars of “Heroes” in an upcoming miniseries. Deadline.com reports that Zachary Quinto, who played Sylar on “Heroes,” joins “The Slap,” which is based on a 2011 Australian program.

Also cast in the project is Brian Cox of “Nuremberg,” with both actors joining Peter Sarsgaard and Mary-Louise Parker in the project.

“‘The Slap’ is described as a complex family drama that explodes from one small incident where a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets, and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,” the story reports.

Quinto, who also played Spock in two recent “Star Trek” movies, will portray a married man with a 15-year-old son. He slaps another man’s misbehaving son, the story adds. Cox will play the patriarch of the family.
