Sam Witwer and Cassidy Freeman have been cast as series regular villains for Season 8 of Smallville, The CW announced on Thursday night.

Witwer, 30, will play Davis Bloome, "a charismatic Metropolis paramedic who -- when he isn't saving people -- is forced to confront a burgeoning darkness inside of him that just might be a harbinger of doom."

That creature likely would be the previously announced Doomsday.

Freeman will play Tess Mercer. Here's how The CW describes her character: "Handpicked by Lex Luthor to succeed him before he vanished, Tess arrives in Smallville as acting CEO of LuthorCorp. Beneath her mysterious allure lies a cunning ruthlessness to match her mentor's."

"We're thrilled that Sam and Cassidy will be joining the cast, and we have some very exciting things in store for them, their characters and Smallville fans for this season," said executive producers Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer in a joint statement. "They are both incredibly talented performers, and we cannot wait to begin to work with them."

Best known for his role as Alex "Crashdown" Quartararo on the Battlestar Galactica, Witwer is also featured in the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed video game. His previous credits include Stephen King's The Mist and guest-starring roles on a number of series, including Dexter, Cold Case, Enterprise, Angel, Dark Angel and ER, among others.

Freeman previously appeared in the feature film Finishing the Game: The Search for a New Bruce Lee, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007. Her other television and motion picture credits include a guest-starring role on Cold Case, the made-for-television movie An Accidental Christmas, the independent film Shades of Gray, and shorts Clock and Razor Sharp.
