Bill Hooper began at Heroes as a script coordinator and a graphic novel writer. At the beginning of the fourth season, he was promoted to be an associate producer. Additionally, a photo of Bill was used as an early version of the shape shifting James Martin.


Before his work on Heroes, Bill worked on Malcolm in the Middle as an assistant to the writers for five years, and wrote the episode Poker #2. Bill also was a production associate for Mr. Show and the Incredible, Fantastical News Report. In 2006, Bill wrote, produced, directed and acted (as the "ass grab guy") in Convincing Benny.


  • Bill Hooper appears in a photo as James Martin (Into Asylum), and later his image is used to depict the same character in a graphic novel (Cog). According to Bill, the photo was originally a photo of the propmaster Ross Anderson. However, Ross was "grinning from ear to ear," and NBC wanted a photo that was scarier looking for the scene where Danko walked around with the photo. The issue came up during a production meeting, and Dennis Hammer looked back at Bill (who "was wearing a beanie and [his] typical thinking scowl") and he said, "What about Bill?" Mark Spatny said, "Bill totally looks like he could be a serial killer." The room erupted in laughter, and Stargate ended up digitally replacing the photo for the whole scene.
  • At the beginning of Redemption, the author of a newspaper article about mysterious drownings is shown to be Bill Hooper.
  • When Samuel Sullivan brings a lawsuit against Peter (Ink), he uses the alias "William Hooper".
