Poor Sam (Bret Harrison) has been a loser his whole life – after all, his parents reasoned, why push the boy to do anything if old Lucifer himself was going to show up and take him away on his 21st birthday?? When the big day finally rolls around, the devil makes good on his bargain, and informs Sam that his new job will be to round up the escaped souls of hell using “a vessel crafted in the bowels of perdition by the iniquitous and the vile. Oh I forgot, you you got a 600 on your SAT!!” (In simple terms, that would be a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner.) Once Sam collects the wayward souls, it’s off to Hell on Earth, aka the local DMV, where a special fugitive transfer station has been set up. As you might have guessed, sending a perpetual screw-up out to collect Hell’s worst offenders presents him with a bit of a challenge, but lucky for him his slacker friend Sock (Tyler Lebine) is there to help, and that’s when the comedy ensues.

The test audience was nearly rolling on the floor laughing at every joke in the script; the writing was dead-on funny, and the actors ALL seem to have nailed their parts. By far, Ray Wise in the roll of Lucifer steals the show, playing a truly evil Satan who you wouldn’t mind having as a next-door neighbor (provided you don’t own a zamboni!!) You can catch Reaper Tuesdays at 9pm this fall on the CW – the first episode is set to air September 25 and I know I’ll be tuning in!!

A former Superman as well as a former Supergirl are planning to converge on Smallville in season seven.   Dean Cain, who played Clark Kent / Superman on the show Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman will be guest starring in a nefarious role, while the big screens first Supergirl, Helen Slater, is being wooed to play new Supergirl Laura Vandervoort’s Kryptonian aunt.

Smallville has a history of bringing in actors associated with other adaptations of the Superman comic.

In an effort to step outside of the box, actress Allison Mack has signed on to direct an episode for Smallville‘s seventh season, which is slated to premiere on September 27.

The 24-year-old actress said in her official blog site that she will be directing the 20th episode of the series this year.  She decided to try her luck on the other side of the camera after realizing she has never placed herself in a situation where she is doing something new.
“We cast Laura because she is the embodiment of Supergirl — she has warmth, beauty and she can kick some serious ass,” said executive producer Al Gough.

“He’s a wonderful actor … and he became available,” Silverman said. “I started talking to him before he was available. … I didn’t have any idea — when he told me he was available, I was like ‘What? I don’t understand. You’re a star on a huge TV show.’ I didn’t quite understand what was going on there.” Silverman was referring to the now-famous incident in which Washington used a homophobic slur during an argument with fellow Grey’s Anatomy cast mate Patrick Dempsey. Under intense pressure, Washington later apologized and even made a public service announcement warning others of the power of words. But, his contract was not renewed, leaving him free to join the cast of Bionic Woman

Silverman believes that Washington’s acting ability speaks for itself, and viewers will become so involved with his character on the show that they’ll be able to leave the controversy behind. “The bottom line is he’s a wonderful actor . . . [and] that’s what I think people will respond to,” he said.

with her escape pod and she wound up staying in suspended animation for 16 years. Clark is unaware of her existance until she makes her appearance in town, awoken from her slumber by a disastrous flood which activates the wake cycle of her escape pod. Rather than looking after Kal-El, he ends up having to look out for her, now that he is the eldest in the family. It proves to be difficult, due to her advanced abilities (including flight) and her obsession with pop culture. 

Smallville returns to the CW with new episodes later this year.

However, Agyeman does have a two-year contract with the franchise, which Davies intends to honor. She’s already scheduled for a three-episode guest spot on Torchwood, and will likely return for another three-episode storyline on Doctor Who. Though Agyeman’s character left in the third season finale, the door has been left open for her to make a reappearance at any time; however, it’s being called “highly unlikely” that she’ll be invited to return to the franchise after her contract is up.

Executive producer Russell T. Davies called Tate “an absolute star” and said he was “delighted that one of Britain’s greatest talents has agreed to join us for the fourth [season]. . . Viewers can expect more ambitious storylines and a whole host of guest stars in 2008.” Tate, meanwhile, said she was “delighted to be returning to Doctor Who. I had a blast last Christmas and look forward to traveling again through time and space with that nice man from Gallifrey.”
