Smallville: Two more characters to return in S10!
Check two more off the list! TVGuide.com reveals that General Lane (yay!) and Lucy are returning to Smallville!

Smallville Exclusive: General Lane, Lucy Lane to Return
Aug 11, 2010 11:22 AM ET
by Natalie Abrams

Lois Lane's family is making a return visit to Smallville!

General Sam Lane (Michael Ironside) and Lucy Lane (Peyton List), the father and wild-child sister of Lois (Erica Durance), are set to return to in a late-October episode, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

General Lane and Lucy were last seen in separate episodes during Season 4. The General, however, has been mentioned numerous times, including last season when Lois called to discuss her wedding to Clark (Tom Welling) while under a persuasive spell.

Details on the duo's arrival are sparse, but we hope the General's return has something to do with Lex Luthor, who became the General's boss in the comic books.

Ironside, 60, has appeared in such films as Top Gun, Total Recall and Starship Troopers, and he's voiced Darkseid (who happens to be Season 10's villain) in the Justice League and Superman animated series. List, 24, recently starred on ABC's Flashforward and recurs as Jane Sterling on Mad Men.

Smallville's 10th and final season premieres Friday, Sept. 24 at 8/7c on the CW.


ETA: A little spoiler from Ask Ausiello.

Question: The new Smallville promo shows Chloe holding Dr. Fate’s helmet, but what I want to know is if she actually puts it on? —Thom
Y** she does.

I think this is a good return. Particularly Gen Lane. IRONSIDE! is awesome no matter what, but Gen Lane does occupy a big role in the Supes story. Lucy is just gravy.

And Yay! James.

I feel the same way about General Lane. Great actor, great character. I'm excited!

I hope they're all having fun on set. I want good stories from James later. :)

Oh, you know we will. James seems perfectly at ease talking about SV, and he loves him some Tom.

And he also knows what his audience loves to hear. :)

I think it would be hilarious if their return is during the episode Ambush.

I've been meaning to ask how do you post the tweets like that?
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 12th, 2010 03:01 am (UTC) (Link)
I take a screen shot of the tweet (I use Grab on my Mac, Print Screen + Paint on the PC at my work), upload it to Photobucket, and crop it. Then I post it like any other image. BTW, every tweet I post is also a link; click on the image to go to the actual tweet.

That seems like a great title for it, doesn't it? :)

Glad to hear Ironsides and Peyton List are returning & they're not recasting the roles. MI loved Tom - maybe we'll get another round of Tom-love quotes!

OMG, he so did! He even talked about how beautiful he was. I always loved that. Big macho IRONSIDE! noticing Tom's beauty. Hee!

I don't like to see anyone recast, but Michael Ironside is truly irreplaceable. I'm so glad they were able to work it out with his busy schedule!

MI is one of those actors, like James Marsters and Phil Morris, whose opinion carries a lot of weight with me because of how much I respect and admire him. When he gushes over Tom, it means something. I want stories and pics from all of these reunions on set! I'm sure Tom is enjoying welcoming everyone back.

Phew! I was dreading that it might be about other characters when I clicked. lol
Thanks for the heads-up!

I know! Every time I make one of these posts, I think of that, and wonder if I should put some kind of clue in the cut, but I'm so afraid of giving something away! I'm glad this one wasn't bad news for you. :)

I was so hoping this would happen! Yay! Now I wonder who will be announced next. :)

Will Michael be the only holdout in a sea of returning actors? I hope not.

I'm really happy they're bringing back the General. MI did a great job, and he was so sincerely flattering to Tom.

I sort of hated the Lucy Lane character. Peyton did a fine job, but I just hated what a selfish, and dishonest brat she was. That said, I'd be happy to see them "redeem" her for me.

That's a "little" spoiler. (OK, I already knew it, or highly suspected, but still. Doesn't that thing make weird things happen?)
