Another fan favorite returns to Smallville! - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
Another fan favorite returns to Smallville!
James Marsters has announced on his official Facebook page that he will return to Smallville as Brainiac in the 200th episode! \o/ I hope the show has something even bigger and better to announce at SDCC, because if not, he just stole all their thunder. :) Thanks to @sv_awareness on Twitter for the heads up!

ETA: Tweets from the Caprica panel at SDCC today:

And this is old news by now, but in case you missed it, Ask Ausiello spilled a couple of Smallville spoilers the other day.

Question: I’m about to go Mel Gibson on your butt if I don’t get some Smallville spoilers regarding Lois and Clark. So how ’bout it, bud? —Christine
You wouldn’t dare hit a man while he’s holding a mint-condition Vanity Smurf plush circa 1982, would you? [Beat] Don’t answer that. Okay, here’s your scoop: There’s a development in the premiere that is so ginormous you’d think Smallville was heading into its final season or something.

Question: Any intel on Smallville‘s big bad this year? —Mitch
No, but I think I have something better: Clark’s getting a new partner at the Daily Planet this season, and she’s got some major DC Comics cred. The character’s name is Cat Grant, and my good buddy Walter Wikipedia has all the deets on the currently-being-cast character. (And no worries, Clois fans; Cat will serve solely as a comedic foil to Clark. I think.)

Dayum! Didn't see this one coming! Though I'm pleased. Brainy was my favourite villain. :)
Also - James! :D

I wonder what is ginormous Clois development? Knowing Aussielo, probably that Lois knows Clark is The Blur/alien. lol

Any time James is on my TV screen, I'm a happy camper! :)

I have no idea what he thinks is ginormous, but I'm fully prepared to be underwhelmed. :) I saw that spoiler that said "chances were good" that we will find out if Lois figured out Clark's other identity in Lazarus. Huh? Didn't we already see that she did exactly that in Salvation? The question is, will TPTB let her keep that knowledge?

I'm excited! I didn't think we were going to see him again.

Now that´s someone whose return I will enjoy. And needless to say, I like Marsters just for the nice things he keeps saying about Tom. After all, he wouldn´t have to if he didn´t feel like...

And I would pay money to learn more about dirty and nasty Tommy...

I agree, I don't think JM is one to blow smoke. He truly admires and respects Tom. And that means a lot to me, because I admire and respect JM.

I want details! C'mon, James, you've been teasing us with these naughty Tommy stories for awhile now, it's time to spill! :)

As do I! I can't wait to see him on the show again, especially in such a big episode. I wish Tom were directing him again, as he did for the 150th.

Brainiac! Cat! Tom is really hot! All things I love to hear about!

I wonder if it'll be the same Cat Grant we already saw? I'm thinking not if they're casting for her again. And that's too bad because I thought Emilie Ullerup was fantastic.

It's been nothing but good news about Smallville lately! I can't wait to see what Sunday brings!

I hope the "currently-being-cast" part just means they haven't signed the paperwork yet. It would be a shame to re-cast a character we met so recently, and I agree that the actress did a great job. Plus she had good chemistry with Tom.

I like JM. His Brainiac was a villain that actually enjoyed being a villain and didn't pretend to be a victim. And, of course, I love JM calling Tom smart and hot!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 12:18 am (UTC) (Link)
JM played Brainiac perfectly. There was nothing emo about him, and he was unmoved by the anguish he caused, just as he should be.

I always love what JM shares about Tom. He obviously holds him in high regard.

LOVE JM, so excited for his return! Brainiac is one of the better villains on the show. Is it wrong that I reallllllly enjoyed JM's comment about Tom being "nasty"? That is HOT! *blushes* Plus, he has repeatedly mentioned Tom's intelligence which is always a nice compliment. Thanks for the news and the tweets!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 12:21 am (UTC) (Link)
I agree, Brainiac is always awesome. I'm so glad they're bringing him back.

That's like the third time that JM has alluded to Tom's naughty side. It IS hot, and I want details! ;)

Yay! Always delighted to see James & Brainiac back!

Whatever antics did James & Tom get up to on set? I need to hear about more Tom being a wicked naughty boy!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 05:36 am (UTC) (Link)
JM raises every scene he's in to a whole new level, and we know from the Persona commentary how much Tom enjoys working with him. I'm so glad he's coming back!

I am so curious about Tom's now infamous naughty side! We need stories. Long, detailed stories.

Very excited to hear James is coming back!! He shares great little tidbits about Tom but I want the full story...with all the sordid details!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 05:41 am (UTC) (Link)
He's teased us long enough. Just one juicy story, James, that's all I ask! ;)

Here´s a link to JM´s statement in case you wanna add it somewhere:

Thanks for the heads up! GMTA, I had just finished putting together a post with that clip when I saw this comment. :)

Watching JM made me even more excited for tomorrow. I can't wait to see video OF Tom, not just ABOUT him!

I have seen you post the tweets. All is right with my world.

S10 is looking awfully good so far, and that's based on the guest stars alone! I wonder what announcements we'll hear tomorrow at the panel.

love Marsters so very happy he's back on SV before it ends.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 10:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
The casting news for S10 has been one happy surprise after another! I wonder who else they have in store for us?
