Masi Oka is ready to be heroic once again.
The star is in the midst of a three-episode arc on Heroes Reborn, and though he's excited to reprise his role as the time-traveling Hiro Nakamura, getting back into the action has been a challenge.
The actor, 40, is currently starring on Hawaii Five-0 but finds Heroes is more physically demanding, particularly picking up the role he first played in 2006 "a few pounds and a couple of years" later.
"Getting back into the action took a little bit of time," he tells PEOPLE. "This time I'm more of a ninja than a samurai because I'm wielding two swords rather than one long sword."
