I'd accept a re-cast character line-up if it was absolutely necessary to get a proper Superman show off the ground. However, for all Smallville's faults, I have essentially spent 10 years investing in these actors and their interpretation of the characters, so it would be nice to see them taken to the next level.
Besides, I think fandom (or at least Procutus) would explode if anyone ever tried to re-cast Chloe Sullivan.
Oops. I forgot. Mack. We MUST have Mack. I agree completely.
I should be slapped for that.
And Erica Durance. The best thing to happen to Lois Lane since Teri Hatcher. Although, if by some miracle we actually could get Hatcher, to hell with Durance. Either way, I'm having serious drooling problems here.
Okay, bring back Mack and Durance, but ditch Welling and Kruek.
