Super worlds collide!
Teri Hatcher, a star of ‘Desperate Housewives,’ sure, but for our purposes also the female lead of ABC’s ‘Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman‘ series, has been tapped to guest-star on ‘Smallvile‘s 10th and final season as Lois Lane’s mother, a Warner Bros. TV rep confirms. The casting was first reported by EW.com.
Though Ella Lane long ago passed on, Lois (played by Erica Durance) will be afforded the chance to “see” her mother when a trove of old videotapes is uncovered in the season’s eighth episode, which is titled “Abandoned.” And based on one actress’ audition tape for the role of Ella (not Hatcher’s) that has been circulating, the mother-daughter scenes promise to deliver serious waterworks on both ends of the TV screen.
The CW’s ‘Smallville’ premieres its final season this Friday at 8/7c.
