CHRISTOPHER REEVE TALKS SMALLVILLE
Christopher Reeve said that he was glad to return to The WB's Smallville. "It's nice to come back," Reeve told Extra in an interview that aired Tuesday night.
Reeve, the movie Superman, reprises his role of Dr. Swann in "Legacy," the episode premiering on Wednesday night.
Reeve, who was paralyzed after a horse-riding accident, said he still enjoys acting.
"It makes me feel that I'm not separated from life before the injury," Reeve said, "that there is still a continuity to it. And that really brings a lot of pleasure."
Reeve said Smallville star Tom Welling is a worthy choice to carry on the legacy of Superman/Clark Kent.
"He's very open and very unspoiled," Reeve said. "Those are the qualities you want in a young Clark Kent."
Welling returned the compliment. "It's fascinating to me, to be aroumd him," Welling said. "I mean, you talk about someone who is a real-life hero."
NEW ANGEL EPISODE
The WB has released eight images from "Origin," the new episode of Angel set to air on Wednesday, April 14 at 9 p.m. (ET).
Here's how the network describes the episode:
"Angel (David Boreanaz) resists the appeal of parents seeking help from Wolfram & Hart regarding their son's supernatural abilities after he discovers that the boy is his son, Connor (guest star Vincent Kartheiser). Despite his reservations, Angel is forced to bring Connor into conflict with an old adversary to prevent his son's memories from being restored. Meanwhile Wesley (Alexis Denisof) uncovers a mysterious deal struck by Wolfram & Hart that threatens the secret Angel desperately wants to protect."
The episode was written by Drew Goddard and directed by Terrence O'Hara.
