John Glover Joining Cast of "Heroes"

Tony Award winner John Glover will be joining the cast of the NBC series Heroes, portraying the father of the show's main villain Sylar, according to His character will make his debut this spring.

Glover won his Tony for his performance in Love! Valour! Compassion! and recently received a 2008 Ovation Award for Secrets of the Trade. His numerous Broadway appearances include The Drowsy Chaperone, Tartuffe, Design for Living, and The Importance of Being Earnest.

In addition to his portrayal of Lex Luthor's father Lionel on the TV series Smallville, Glover also currently appears on ABC's Brothers & Sisters.

Kristen Kreuk Talks "Smallville" and "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" recently caught up with Kristen Kreuk at Spike’s Video Game Awards and interviewed her about her new role in "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" and why she will not disappoint her Smallville fans.

FearNet: Will you be popping up on Smallville anymore this season?
Kristen: I will. I have four more episodes that will air starting January 15th.

FearNet: Anything you can share with us?
Kristen: Lana is coming back after being away for a long time. The audience gets to find out what happened to her, what occurred during that time period. She’s very different when she comes back. Then she gets a beautiful send-off. She’s been a victim for so long, so she gets a beautiful send-off as a hero that her fans will really, really like.

FearNet: Is this the last season of Smallville?
Kristen: I don’t know. It depends on whatever goes on between Tom Welling and the powers that be. If there is another season, I won’t be there – that is all I know!

FearNet: Tell us about "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li".
Kristen: It’s the origin story of Chun-Li, what happens in her childhood and through her young adult years that causes her to become the fighter that she is. It’s kind of a spiritual journey in a lot of ways. A traditional kung-fu story where I’m very angry and going to go get revenge, but I find a master who teaches me to overcome my emotions so I can see the greater good, then become a stronger fighter because internally you have a greater strength.

FearNet: Do you have a martial arts background?
Kristen: A bit. I have a purple belt in karate, which I took between 5th grade and 10th grade. I also have a competitive gymnastics background. So all of that helps out. I did do five weeks of training for the film. I would have loved to have done more. I had such a good time.

FearNet: Did you do a lot of your own stunts?
Kristen: I did a bunch of stunts. I also had three stunt doubles – one of which was a man. Between all four of us, we covered it.

Season Eight of Smallville Marks End of Tom Welling's Contract

According to this week's TV Guide (via Aint it Cool), 31-year-old Tom Welling is as free as a bird after Smallville finishes it's eighth, and possibly last, season.

His contract with the show will be up and though the young actor hasn't exactly got a viable film career to jump into (besides the forgettable remake of "The Fog" that he did, the only other thing he seems to have going on on the big screen are those incessant "Cheaper with the Dozen" films, where he plays kid number 2) he's understandably going to be a little tired of playing a teenage Clark Kent and itching to play anything but for a while - even if that is Steve Martin's tweenage son in another umpteenth "Dozen" sequels.

Welling hasn't indicated one way or the other yet, but the fact that he's no longer legally obligated to file stories for The Daily Planet does suggest he might look for work elsewhere next year.

"Smallville" executive producer Darren Swimmer also tells TV Guide this week that he's prepared for a series finale if it comes to pass, but there are still a few things he wants to see Clark explore before everything is wrapped up. "Clark's now in full control of his powers and basically accepting the fact that he's going to become Superman," Swimmer said. "The formation of the dual identity is what he's going to be negotiating from here on out. He'll start to experiment."

If The CW does chop "Smallville", Swimmer also has a suggestion for them : Give "Martian Manhunter" (played by Phil Morris on the series) his own hourly adventure series. - SOURCE

Here I hope this opens the door for Tom to get the chance at playing the big screen SUPERMAN some time soon... I would love for the show to continue for another 2 seasons at least! But Id much rather see Tom on the big screen as SUPERMAN!

YES!!! From the horses mouth it's self!!! Singer is not in talks for a SUPERMAN RETURNS Sequel!

UGO has posted an interview with Superman Returns director Bryan Singer, who goes a bit back and forth whether he's involved with the follow-up or not. Here's a clip:

JH: But there is talk of a new film, though. Are you officially involved in this talk of the new film?

BS: I am not officially involved in the talk, no.

JH: But when talk happens they�ll call you.

BS: Well it�s, you know, I have relationships with Warner Brothers and with the character and, and, and, and it�s just the way things work out.

JH: But you are not divorced from Superman at this point.

BS: No.

JH: All right.

Now understand he could still end up directing another SUPERMAN movie but odds are he wont I mean look how long it's taken to hear even this from him!
The WB are also tighter lipped about this subject then the JFK coverup!

Let's hope we get what WE THE FANS want... No Singer/Routh, and a movie with TOM WELLING as SUPERMAN.
