QUICK HIT: Teri Hatcher To Play Lois Lane’s Mom


I’m not much of a Smallville guy, but this tidbit of information from Michael Ausiello certainly caught my eye. Teri Hatcher will be playing mother to Lois Lane on the current, final season of The CW’s veteran Superman series. This is something of a wink-wink gesture to fans of Hatcher’s esteemed tenure on ABC’s seminal ’90s drama The New Adventures of Lois and Clark, a show I must admit I was very fond of back in its heyday. It’s kind of awesome that Teri Hatcher, who played Lois herself on Lois and Clark, agreed to take on the new role, but all you Desperate Housewives fans shouldn’t be too concerned. Susan Mayer will still be hanging around Wisteria Lane too.

And hey, who knew that Smallville was still on the air? To quote Lucille Bluth, “Good for HER.”
