Mr. Linderman was originally an unseen character, and was played by Malcolm McDowell when he finally did appear. He is a well-known mobster with ties to several of the main characters. He is based in Las Vegas, Nevada and is an avid chef and collector of art and antiquities, and has a large collection Isaac Mendez's art.


Mr. Linderman was never shown for the first 17 episodes. He was only mentioned by name. He has many of Isaac's paintings as well as the sword Hiro Nakamura required. He has supplied Nathan Petrelli's political campaign with money. However, he is sought after by the authorities who seem to think he's doing illegal things. It is often implied that he is some sort of Las Vegas styled mob boss. He has hired Jessica Sanders as an assassin. It is revealed in 1961 that Linderman, Angela Petrelli, and Robert Bishop were all present at Coyote Sands during the program to try and neutralize abilities. After the massacre at Coyote Sands,the few survivors, including Linderman agreed to form the Company, to keep the abilities a secret, "no matter the cost".



In Genesis, Nathan Petrelli is on the phone with Mr. Linderman at his political headquarters, though hangs up when his brother Peter enters, saying he'll call back.

Nicole Sanders owes Mr. Linderman $50,000, so he sends two thugs to her house to get the money. Jessica eventually takes over and kills the two.

Don't Look BackEdit

In Don't Look Back, Niki tells Tina about the two thugs and finding their mutilated bodies. Afraid of what else Mr. Linderman would do, she decides to run and try to hide from him.

One Giant LeapEdit

In One Giant Leap, as Niki and Micah are on the run, they are pulled over by a police officer, saying that Mr. Linderman wants to see her.


In Collision, at the Montecito Casino, one of Mr. Linderman's subordinates tells Niki that he's willing to forget her debt if she seduces Nathan Petrelli. Nathan arrives at the same casino to obtain some money for his political campaign, and Niki later meets with him. She refuses to get involved with him and goes to an elevator. However, a thug threatens to harm Micah. Jessica then takes over and goes to Nathan's room and sleeps with him.
