Superman Actor Reeve Lands Back in ‘Smallville’
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Christopher Reeve, the now- paralyzed actor who soared to movie fame as Superman, will soon lend some guidance to a young Clark Kent in an upcoming episode of the WB television series “Smallville.”
WB spokesman Paul McGuire on Monday confirmed a report by TV Guide that Reeve will guest star in February as a brilliant scientist who provides Clark with “revelatory insight into his superhero destiny.”
“Smallville,” now in its second season as one of the WB’s top-rated shows, stars Tom Welling as a teenaged Clark Kent coming to grips with his superhuman strength in the years before he grows up to become a mild-mannered reporter who moonlights as the red-caped Man of Steel.
The episode with Reeve is slated to run during the key ratings “sweep” in late February, McGuire said.
According to the report in TV Guide’s next edition, which hits newsstands next Monday, the Vancouver-based production will be shot in New York City to accommodate Reeve, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a 1995 horseback riding accident.
Reeve was best known for playing the title role in the 1978 hit film “Superman” and in two movie sequels.
As part of the deal for him to guest star on “Smallville,” the WB will run a public service announcement at the end of the episode for the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation.
TV Guide columnist J. Max Robins quoted a “Smallville” insider as saying Reeve is a fan of the show and has told friends that Welling reminds him of a young Chris Reeve.
