Smallville is packing a wallop of hotties for its upcoming seventh season. Several weeks ago, Canadian Laura Vandervoort was announced to play Kara or Supergirl when Smallville returns in September. Vandervoort’s character is the Kryptonian cousin of Clark Kent, played by Tom Welling. Like Clark, Kara is also endowed with super powers and capabilities such as strength, speed, flight and x-ray vision. |
In additional Smallvile casting news, 24-year old Michael Cassidy has just signed on to play the hotshot, new, young editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet. Cassidy will portray the character named Grant Gabriel, who will take over the newspaper’s editorial desk from Pauline Kahn, played by original Star Wars trilogy star, Carrie Fisher.
The series had originally been on the lookout for a thirty something actor to essay the part of the new Daily Planet honcho. The character of Grant Gabriel has been written into the show as someone who can hopefully revitalize the newspaper and render it more appealing and accessible to younger readers. As Gabriel, Michael Cassidy is slated to appear in six of the first eight episodes of the seventh season. TV Guide reports that he is likely to make his first appearance on the second episode of the season. Aside from hopefully adding youth to the Daily Planet, Grant Gabriel is also reportedly being groomed as Lois Lane’s possible love interest.
Prior to joining Smallville, Michael Cassidy had originally come to popularity for his role as Zach Stevens on season two of The O.C. He has recently also starred as the character Cliff Wiatt on the series, Hidden Palms.
Aside from the inclusion of Vandervoort and Cassidy in the new season of Smallville, fans of the show are also eagerly awaiting news about the fate of Kristin Kreuk, who has played Lana Lang since the start of the series. After the explosion of Lana’s SUV in last season’s finale, Kreuk’s return to the show has remained in doubt as the actress is still in talks about her future participation.
