Teri Hatcher Joins Smallville

Michael Ausiello over at EW confirms that in a genius piece of casting, Teri Hatcher will be making an appearance in an upcoming episode of the series’ final season, playing none other than Lois Lane’s mother.

Of course, Teri Hatcher first rose to fame by playing Lois Lane in the series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

This casting announcement may come as a surprise to many fans of Smallville since Lois Lane’s mother is supposed to be dead. Hatcher will appear in episode eight which will follow Lois finding old videotapes depicting her mother before she died.
