CAST MEMBERS OF REAPER, SMALLVILLE, AND SUPERNATURAL DISCUSS THE NEW SEASONS OF THEIR SHOWS
Comic Con International, the world’s largest comic book convention, was held this July in San Diego, and the stars of The CW were on hand to meet the fans, represent their shows, and talk about what’s in store for the new season.
Director Kevin Smith, who helmed the pilot of Reaper, led a panel discussion and a screening of the show. The CW’s new series follows a young man who discovers that his parents made a deal with the devil, and that he must now serve as Satan’s bounty hunter, tracking down souls that have escaped from hell. Star Missy Peregrym was also in San Diego to offer her take on the show, and Ray Wise explained why he calls Reaper a horro-thrillo-rademy. Watch the video now: http://www.cwtv.com/video/?d=reaper-05
Erica Durance attended Comic Con to talk about the coming season of Smallville and the future of her character Lois Lane, which includes a position at a certain Metropolis newspaper. Durance’s new co-star Laura Vandervoort joins the cast this season as Clark Kent’s Kryptonian cousin Kara, better known as Supergirl. Vandervoort visited the Con and offered her thoughts on what changes her character’s introduction will bring to the series. Watch the video now: http://cwtv.com/video?vid=330
Supernatural Executive Producer Eric Kripke visited San Diego and promised that Season Three of his series would be the “biggest and most thrilling season yet,” while star Jensen Ackles discussed how his character will be affected by the deadly deal he made at the end of last season.

Look, up in the sky: it’s a bird, it’s a plane! It’s…Supergirl! This fall, Supergirl will be joining the lineup of burgeoning superheroes and villains in SMALLVILLE. Supergirl is the latest DC Comics character to join the series that has previously welcomed Martian Manhunter, The Green Arrow, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Brainiac.
Laura Vandervoort (The Lookout, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) has been cast as Kara – Clark’s (Tom Welling)
On SMALLVILLE, the seventh season premiere kicks off with the arrival of Supergirl. She was born on Krypton and is the daughter of Zor-El, Jor-El’s brother. Kara possesses all of Clark’s powers and one he doesn’t yet have – she can fly! Kara also has a strong, rebellious streak that puts her at odds with Clark, and puts her onto Lex’s (Michael Rosenbaum) radar. In addition, she takes a romantic interest in Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore).
Al Gough and Miles Millar serve as executive producers, along with Ken Horton, Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer, James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
