"Smallville," season seven - and eight?

I talked today to Alfred Gough, co-creator and executive producer of TV’s “Smallville,” about the upcoming seventh season.

Filming of the season’s fourth episode is under way, Gough said, with guest star Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark”) as a bad guy. A few episodes down the road, Helen Slater, who played the Girl of Steel in the 1984 “Supergirl,” will guest-star.

“Over the course of the series, we’ve always tried to bring pepole in who have been in other incarnations of Superman,” Gough noted. One of those, of course, was Christopher Reeve, who played scientist Virgil Swann.

Last year, on the eve of season six, Gough told me that season seven would likely be the end of “Smallville.” Now that season seven is almost here, he’s not ready to call it quits. “Ideally, we would like to go eight seasons and call it a day,” he said.

Thanks. Yeah, it's always cool to see those figures from Superman's past in film and TV pop up on "Smallville."
