Small won­der

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TV -

FOR a while, it seemed Kristin Kreuk’s por­trayal of Lana Lang on Smal­lville did lit­tle to cat­a­pult the TV ac­tress’ ca­reer. Af­ter end­ing her stint in the Su­per­man TV adap­ta­tion in 2009 (the show even­tu­ally ended in 2011), Kreuk failed to land any ma­jor roles ... un­less you con­sider her per­for­mance in the slap­stick sci-fi, Space Milk­shake. But of course, TV land couldn’t get enough of this daz­zling ac­tress and came knock­ing on her door to star in Beauty And The Beast in 2012. Let’s check in on the rest of the Smal­lville cast:

Tom Welling (Su­per­man / Clark Kent)

It’s not go­ing so well for Welling. The ac­tor seems to have taken a hia­tus, hav­ing only two films to his credit since Smal­lville ended. Welling starred in Park­land, a film re­count­ing the day John F. Kennedy was as­sas­si­nated, as US Se­cret Ser­vice Agent Roy Keller­man and the soon-to-bere­leased base­ball drama Draft Day, star­ring op­po­site Kevin Cost­ner and Jennifer Garner.

In 2010, Welling also went be­hind-the-scenes, serv­ing as ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer in the cheer­lead­ing se­ries, Hell­cats.

Things aren’t go­ing so great on the per­sonal front ei­ther, with the 36-year-old ac­tor’s 10-year mar­riage end­ing last year.

Al­li­son Mack (Chloe Sul­li­van)

Mack dab­bled in some short films as Smal­lville was about to end. In 2011, she starred in the in­de­pen­dent flick, Mar­i­lyn, as the as­sis­tant to real-life no­to­ri­ous bank rob­ber Paddy Mitchell.

These days, Mack can be found on the set of Wil­fred, land­ing a recurring role on the TV com­edy.

Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor)

Rosenbaum has be­come quite an es­tab­lished voice ac­tor even while work­ing on Smal­lville, voic­ing a va­ri­ety of char­ac­ters on the 2001 an­i­mated TV se­ries Jus­tice League.

He’s still do­ing some of that plus nab­bing a recurring role on the sit­com, Break­ing In.

This year, he made his di­rect­ing and writ­ing de­but with com­edy flick Back In The Day.

Oh, the 41-year-old ac­tor looks like he hasn’t aged a day since Smal­lville, too, though now he sports a full head of hair.

Erica Du­rance (Lois Lane)

Looks like Lois Lane and Lana Lang are in com­pe­ti­tion once again. Du­rance is the leading lady in the suc­cess­ful su­per­nat­u­ral med­i­cal drama, Sav­ing Hope, giv­ing Kreuk’s per­for­mance in Beauty And The Beast a run for her money.

She plays a doc­tor whose fi­ance is in a coma af­ter a car ac­ci­dent, but his spirit roams around the hospi­tal help­ing pa­tients.

Justin Hart­ley (Oliver Queen)

If you tuned in to Sea­son Three of Re­venge and thought the ac­tor play­ing Vic­to­ria’s long lost son, Patrick Os­bourne, looks fa­mil­iar, he is none other than Hart­ley.

The ac­tor was also a se­ries reg­u­lar on the short lived Emily Owens, M.D. – Ken­nethChaw

Not so su­per: Tom Welling isn’t as for­tu­nate as for­mer co-star Kristin Kreuk, act­ing in only two films since his Smal­lville days.
