LAURA VANDERVOORT CAST AS SMALLVILLE'S SUPERGIRL

Laura Vandervoort has been cast as Supergirl in The CW's Smallville.

The Continuum also has learned that Michael Cassidy on Wednesday completed his deal to play Grant Gabriel, editor of The Daily Planet.

Vandervoort, 22, is another Canadian actress for Smallville -- the show is filmed in Vancouver -- where she joins Kristin Kreuk and Erica Durance. From Toronto, she has dozens of television credits, most notably on the cable series Instant Star, and she guest-starred in an episode of Mutant X.

Vandervoort begins filming next week and will be introduced to the public at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Supergirl arrives in the Season 7 premiere. Her name is Kara and she is Clark's 19-year-old cousin. She was born on Krypton and is the daughter of Zor-El, Jor-El's brother. Kara possesses all of Clark's powers and one he doesn't yet have -- flying.

Kara also has a strong, rebellious streak that puts her at odds with Clark, and puts her onto Lex's radar. In addition, she takes a romantic interest in Jimmy Olsen.

Cassidy's signing solidifies recent rumors. His character, Grant Gabriel, will be a hot-shot young editor who is brought in "to the get the gray out" of The Daily Planet and make it more accessible to younger readers. He will be featured in a seven-episode arc taking place in the first 10 episodes of Season 7.



FANTASTIC FOUR ANIMATED UPDATE

Cartoon Network is moving the Fantastic Four animated series after Saturday's episode.

According to recently revised scheduling, the show will move from its 9:30 p.m. time slot in the Toonami block on Saturday to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday beginning July 28.

Upcoming Saturday morning episodes include "De-Mole-Ition" on July 28 and "Revenge of the Skrulls" on August 4.

This Saturday's episode is "Annihilation."

Here's how the episode is described:

"The Fantastic Four fall into a trap and are taken to the Negative Zone, where they're attacked by Annihilus and his warriors. But all is not as it seems - something in the Zone is affecting the Four's powers. Things go from bad to worse when Doctor Doom arrives, apparently in league with Annihilus! But Doom isn't one to share power, and he takes Annihilus' energy source back to Earth with him. But even if the Four can escape Annihilus, how can they defeat Doom, who now has the power to destroy the world?"
