Teri Hatcher’s big break came in 1993, when she was cast as Lois in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.” This may be hard to believe for you young’uns, but she was one of the sexiest women of the ’90s (I keep telling everyone I know that it was a crappy decade). Really, it’s true. She was one of the most famous and memorable girlfriends on “Seinfeld.” She even beat out Monica Bellucci to be a Bond girl, a decision that I hope resulted in someone being eaten alive by wild dogs.
And now, ravaged by time and Botox, Hatcher will play Lois Lane’s mother on “Smallville.”
For the show’s 10th and final season, producers have scored perhaps their biggest (maybe even the biggest possible) casting coup: They’ve snagged erstwhile Lois Lane Teri Hatcher to play mom to Erica Durance’s Lois Lane!
I know what you’re thinking: But Lois’ mom, Ella, is dead! Follow along now… In episode 8, titled “Abandoned,” Lois discovers old videotapes of her mother. I think you can figure the rest out for yourself. [Ausiello] [Ed. Note: Good God, do I wanna kick that guy in the balls.]
I suppose I can’t feel too bad for Hatcher, what with all the crazy cash she’s making on “Desperate Housewives.” I mean, at least she’s still working. When reached for comment, Dean Cain said, “Hey baby, you ever been jacked off by Superman? C’mon, don’t walk away, it’ll be the best ten bucks you ever spend.”
(Just because: Teri Hatcher and Richard Dean Anderson in 1992.)
