FROM THE WB'S PRESS RELEASE:

About to begin its fifth season on The WB, Smallville is coming off a great year that continued to explore the mythology of the early days of the Clark Kent character. More exciting pieces of the puzzle will be revealed next season when Clark finds himself transported to the Fortress of Solitude. Starring Tom Welling as the Kansas farm boy who grows up to be Superman, the series is The WB's number one show with men 18-34 and third highest-rated series in adults 18-34.

"This season, we're making a bold statement on Thursday nights by moving one of our signature hits, Smallville to 8:00," said Mr. Janollari. "The show faced some of the toughest competition of any series on television this season, going up against Lost every week, yet it continued to deliver great ratings, " said Mr. Janollari. "With the critically acclaimed drama Everwood moving into the 9:00 timeslot, we think Thursday will be one of the most compelling nights of the upcoming season. Led by Treat Williams, Everwood features one of the strongest ensemble casts and some of the best writing on television."

Smallville continues to successfully explore the legacy of one of America's greatest cultural icons. With a rabid fanbase and 3 top-selling seasons on DVD, it's clear that Clark Kent's journey into manhood will keep on thrilling millions of young adult WB viewers.

For Clark (Tom Welling), now the most eligible bachelor in Kansas, it's hard hiding his extraordinary gifts behind farmboy flannel. Now he's off to college, enrolling close to his home (and sweetheart Lana), but still heeding the call of his Kryptonian destiny. Remaining true to the original mythology, Clark finds himself traveling great distances to unlock his true potential. Lex Luthor, meanwhile, continues battling for control of his father's company as he comes to realize his own destiny, one bent on power, destruction, and revenge.

JAMES MARSTERS VISITS SMALLVILLE AS THE EVIL BRAINIAC AND TOM WOPAT REUNITES WITH SERIES STAR JOHN SCHNEIDER

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (July 22, 2005) - James Marsters sinks his teeth into another juicy role for The WB when he joins the cast of SMALLVILLE for multiple episodes. Marsters will portray Brainiac, a classic DC Comics villain and one of the Man-of-Steel's most formidable enemies. Additionally, one episode this season will reunite series star John Schneider with his former "Dukes of Hazzard" co-star, Tom Wopat.

Marsters plays college professor Milton Fine, alter ego of the uber-villain Brainiac. Possessed of a vast, superior knowledge limited only by his hubris and emotions, Brainiac comes to earth armed with a secret about Clark's biological family and the truth about Krypton's demise. Brainiac's presence in Smallville will have a devastating effect on Clark and Lex's already deteriorating friendship.

Marsters first appeared on The WB in the critically acclaimed hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Spike, the vampire who first tries to kill Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), but ultimately falls in love with her. After five seasons on the show and Spike's untimely demise, Marsters' character was reborn as a ghost on the series spin-off Angel, starring David Boreanaz.

Marsters began his professional career in the theater, performing in stage productions including "The Tempest" and "Red Noses" at Chicago's renowned Goodman Theatre. In addition, Marsters revisited the stage in Los Angeles with a starring role in an original play produced by Noah Wyle, titled "The Why." Additional television roles include a guest appearance on "Northern Exposure" and the series "Strange Frequency" for VH1, as well as on Gene Roddenberry's "Andromeda."

Brainiac is the latest DC Comics character to appear in SMALLVILLE. The Flash, Mxyzptlk and Perry White have all made appearances during the series run. Last season, Lois Lane (Erica Durance) joined the cast.

Also this season on SMALLVILLE, veteran actor and Broadway star Tom Wopat will portray a state senator who was a boyhood friend of Jonathan Kent (Schneider). In addition to his role co-starring with Schneider on the hit television series "The Dukes of Hazzard," Wopat starred in the popular sitcom "Cybill," with Cybill Shepherd, and in the daytime drama "All My Children." He was also nominated for Broadway's 1999 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for his role opposite Bernadette Peters in the revival of "Annie Get Your Gun."

Reinterpreting the Superman mythology from its roots, Smallville was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon," "Spiderman 2"), based on the DC Comics characters. Gough and Millar serve as executive producers, along with Greg Beeman, Ken Horton, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
