Madeline Zima has snagged a recurring role on the fourth season of NBC's "Heroes."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a plotline will find Hayden Panettiere's Claire Bennett going to college -- Yeah, because it's worked out so well every other time she's tried just being a normal teen -- where she'll room with Gretchen (Zima), decribed as "an edgy outsider."

"Heroes" will be back on NBC this fall in its familiar Monday night home.

Zima has most recently been redefining herself as Mia on Showtime's steamy "Californication," but for several generations of TV viewers, she'll always be little Grace from "The Nanny."
