ONE SEXY VISITOR: With ‘V’ premiering later in the fall, Laura Vandervoort apparently has the time (and her bosses’ blessing!) to swoop by The CW’s ‘Smallville,’ reprising her role as Clark’s cousin, Kara (aka Supergirl). Laura’s encore will air sometime in October, shortly after ‘Smallville’ launches its 10th and final season, says EW.com.
HEY-HEY, IT’S A MONKEE!: Syfy has further upped the cheese factor of its ‘Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid‘ movie with the addition of The Monkees‘ Mickey Dolenz. The flick stars ’80s pop starlets Tiffany and Debbie Gibson as rival scientist types; Dolenz plays a celebrity singer hired for an eco-friendly fundraiser in the Everglades.
‘HELLCATS’ DOCTOR IS IN: D.B. Woodside (’24′s Wayne Palmer) has joined the new CW cheerleading drama ‘Hellcats,’ playing Derrick Altman, a “handsome young physician who takes care of the cheerleaders.” Derrick is also the beau of Hellcats coach Vanessa (played by Sharon Leal), says Zap2it.
