I'll be interviewing Jim Martin and Timm Keppler, the writers of Nowhere Man. If you have a question for them, post it below. If you have a question for the directors of Nowhere Man, post it at this link. Thanks!

  • I'd like to send Jim and Timm these questions by Friday, 5/15. Get your last minute questions in! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:16, 14 May 2009 (EDT)
    • Do you know already there's not going to be a part 5 released on Tuesday?--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:33, 14 May 2009 (EDT)
      • Ryan confirmed to me on his talk page that he got e-mail confirmation from the marketing director and one of the writers that there are only four parts.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:16, 14 May 2009 (EDT)
        • Ryan has sent the questions for the interview, but if you have more, feel free to keep adding them. Additional questions are welcomed and Ryan said he would pass them along.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:27, 17 May 2009 (EDT)

Questions for the writers

  • Who came up with Doyle getting a "spin off" and why was it him?--Drwho113 13:01, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Is it to be assumed this is before Eric Doyle gets taken down by Sylar‎ the 2nd time? Was that second encounter with Sylar ever planned to be part of this web series?
  • Will Doyle return in Season 4?
  • In your opinion, what is the main point of creating webisodes? "Going Postal" introduced Echo, who was given 5 seconds on the show; the second series introduced us to a new set of characters, with new powers and a new organization, which weren't shown since; and "The Recruit" introduced us to Rachel, who was featured in her own iStory. So basically, are the webisodes meant to satisfy the fans - those who want more than the show can offer? Also, great job on writing this series. This is my favorite one so far! Obi-Dan Kenobi 09:52, 4 May 2009 (EDT)
  • Why the decision to have Doyle shut the door using his power? That's the first time he's ever been able to use his power on an inanimate object. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:34, 12 May 2009 (EDT)
  • Does Doyle's closing of the door at the end of Nowhere Man 4 using his ability mean that he can use his ability on more than just people? Was there talk about changing/altering/enhancing/revealing more of his power? If so, do you have a more accurate name for Doyle's ability? (By the way, I absolutely LOVE Eric's line in Nowhere Man 1, Lauren:"Nice shirt." Eric:"Thanks, I like your skin." Lauren:"What?" Eric:

"I mean... your dress. I like your dress." The perfect balance of humor and creepiness. :D --ElleFanBoy 20:12, 13 May 2009 (EDT)

  • Where does Claire meet Eric Doyle when she gives him his new identity?
  • Does the name "Tyminski" have any personal meaning to you or someone else that worked on Heroes? Is it named for a real person?
  • I really do like this series, but can you make more? Or is there a limit to how many you can have? I would like to see a webseries go more than 5 webisodes.. The series just ends after that and I, a fan, would like to see more of their story..Thank you for the webseries by the way!

Additional questions

Add additional questions here. Those questions from the first batch that Ryan was sending have been sent.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:00, 17 May 2009 (EDT)

  • Will anyone outside the USA ever see Nowhere Man? There is Heroes fans in other countries too! --Isaac Mendez 14:01, 18 May 2009 (EDT)


  • Jim and Timm actually requested the colors for their names. In fact, they responded in those colors! :) By the way, now the race is on to find out the name of Brian Kimmet's wife, who played Doyle's boss. She's wearing a nametag, too, so she actually has a name. Anybody have any luck figuring it out? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:20, 29 May 2009 (EDT)
    • I zoomed in and took a negative of the image... my first impression was that the nametag reads as either "Bess" or "Boss". But looking at it some more, it could also be "Rose" or "Mary". It's hard to tell what the name is, but though it looks like there's four letters. ;)--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:45, 29 May 2009 (EDT)
      • I actually have a feeling it's going to be the same name as the actress's name. I asked Timm and Jim, and I also asked Chris and Tanner. I'm sure one of them will give us the answer. (Is it sad that my main driving force for finding the actress's name is so we can add one more person here?) :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:40, 29 May 2009 (EDT)
        • It's not sad. I went and took another screenshot, but it didn't get any better. If I could use NBC Direct on my computer, I'd probably be able to get a better shot, but I can't since Windows 2000 isn't supported. If we don't get an answer from the writers and directors, maybe someone who downloaded the show can check it out for us. Also, not sure if this fits, but it looks like there's two stand-ins in the third part in the hospital... looks like Jim Martin and Timm Keppler might have made cameo appearances; not sure it's them though. See this photo to see for yourself. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:52, 29 May 2009 (EDT)
          • I'll ask them. I doubt it's them, but I'll play the role of Matt Lauer and ask. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:01, 29 May 2009 (EDT)
            • They're not Jim and Timm, they're two extras. As for the boss's name tag, it's Mary, no doubt named after the actress who plays her, Mary O'Malley. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:23, 30 May 2009 (EDT)
              • That's cool. Did you get any names for the extras?--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:29, 30 May 2009 (EDT)
                • They dIdn't know them, but were kicking themselves that they didn't jump in front of the camera! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:38, 30 May 2009 (EDT)
                  • Heh, well, maybe the directors know whom the extras were.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:44, 30 May 2009 (EDT)
