Heroes alumni Taylor Cole have been added to the cast of the Ali Atshani-directed comedy 1st Born, a U.S./Iranian co-production. The two join Val Kilmer, William Baldwin, Robert Knepper, Jay Abdo and Armin Amiri in the film, which follows a young mixed-nationality couple, Iranian born Ben and American Kate, who are experiencing complications in their first pregnancy. This forces the whole extended family to put aside their differences and come together for the sake of the infant. Cole will play Kate, the daughter of American politician Biden (Kilmer). Sam Khoze, Tarek Zohdy and Medhi Alimirzayi penned the screenplay. LA Independent Film and Entertainment is producing with Khoze and Edwin Avaness. Filming begins next month in Los Angeles. Cole, who currently plays Sofya Voronova on the CW series The Originals, is repped by Innovative Artists and The Burstein Company. Grunberg (Alias, Felicity, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is repped by Paradigm Talent Agency and SC Management.
