Re: Smallville: season 9

Too bad they've already cast him as General Sam Lane...they could use his voice with a CGI Darkseid. I could see a finale where Lex has somehow used Luthor Corp's resources in a bid to make contact with extraterristial life and it turns out to be Darkseid. Clark is forced to become Superman to stop him.

Oh goody! Another season of him pining for Lana, flirting with Lois and doing all he can to not become Superman.

Re: Smallville: season 9

Smallville is good now! I'd love another season, why not? Who cares if he never wears the exact outfit, he can still become some kind of superman in this universe.

Terminator and Smallville. That's all I need to make me happy each week (until Lost and BSG come back on that is).

Re: Smallville: season 9

Kristen won't be back if there is a season nine so there won't be Lana to worry about. In fact I think that Lana's finale appearence is in Legion...she might have a couple more episodes but she's almost done anyways. Kristen has expressed displeasure in the past with her role in the series and wants to move onto other roles (i.e. Street fighter, etc).

Smallville is good so far...won't say now until we see the rest of the season. I would like to see things go out on a high note rather than risk sucking.

Re: Smallville: season 9

I can see Rosenbaum's point. He has not formally agreed to comeback. But the body doubles are giving the impression that he will be back soon. If it goes for a 9th and he comes back for the series finale that is a long time from now! TPTB don't seem to know what to do with Lex next anyways.

Re: Smallville: season 9

I think Rosenbaum, as much as I like him as a character, is stretching his point.

The character Lex Luthor is a huge huge part of the Superman mythos, the show has every right to depict the character any way they choose. Rosenbaum decides to leave the show, he doesn't get to decide what happens to his character.

If they want to bring back Lex with a new actor and say he had plastic surgery, more power to them as long as they get a good actor. Rosenbaum did a great job, but it shouldn't go to his head.

Re: Smallville: season 9

You are missing the point! They have no intention of replacing him. This is just a stand-in, a place holder for him. If it was about recasting the part they could have done so this season.

As long as they're still going and still stunt casting, they should have Routh play an antagonist, and have a Welling/Routh fight...

Not necessarily. They still can recast him if they want.

Yes, I realize it's just a place holder.

I'm commenting on Rosenbaum's comments that they shouldn't be doing this. No actor is irreplacable. He did a great job, and got well deserved acclaim, but he shouldn't let it go to his head.

As long you're still casting a man in the role, Ed Asner would do just fine IMO.
