Franklin Stern Joins Maxwell Lord on Smallville

3 April 2010 5:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

In the upcoming “Smallville” episode called “Charade”, Maxwell Lord (Gil Bellows) isn’t going to be the only new DC addition to the cast of the CW show. Blu Mankuma (“2012”, “Tin Man”) will be playing the role of Franklin Stern, owner and publisher of the Daily Planet. Looks like this is when the paper will change hands from Tess Mercer on behalf of Luthor Corp to Stern.

This role was played by James Earle Jones in an episode of the 90’s series “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”.

As an additional note for this “Charade” episode, Ray Sacks (Dylan Neal, pictured below), the Da that was behind bars earlier this season is making another appearance on “Smallville” in this same episode.

Smallville”’s “Charade” episode is scheduled to air on Friday, April 23rd, on the CW at 8/7 C.

Daily Planet To Get A New Owner In Upcoming 'Smallville' Episode?

26 March 2010 9:28 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Clark Kent and Lois Lane could be getting a new boss on "Smallville."

Kryptonsite is reporting that Blu Mankuma will appear in an episode later this year as Franklin Stern — the owner and publisher of the Daily Planet in the DC Universe. Stern was created by Louise Simonson and Jon Bogdanove in 1993 during the "Superman: The Man of Steel" series.

James Earl Jones portrayed Stern on a single episode of "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" during the first season of that show. Given the history of the character — and the upcoming return of Michael McKean as Perry White — it seems likely that Stern will assume ownership of the paper from Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman).

Mankuma — who recently appeared in the film "2012" — has an extensive resume of genre TV series, including "The X-Files," "The Outer Limits," "Forever Knight," "Robocop: The Series" and "Stargate Sg-1."

Mankuma's character will appear alongside »

2012 Blu-Ray Review

2 March 2010 1:44 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

2012 (3-disc Se) Blu-raysony Pictures Entertainment 2009/Rated PG-13/158 minsAVAILABLE Today – List Price $39.98Roland Emmerich has to be a friggin' nut. The director loves giving us sheer spectacle, yet his films are so poorly constructed, sometimes feeling as if they were written on toilet paper. '2012' is a movie almost as easily disposable as toilet paper, yet it's one of those pictures you walk out of thinking “what the hell did I just see?” I thought I had seen it all with Todd Phillips' 'The Hangover' being the best and funniest film of last year. Boy was I wrong. That distinction now belongs to Emmerich's latest epic, though it's not the best film of 2009 and its humorous appeal was by no means intentional. It says a lot about us as a people when we get a kick out of watching disaster unfold onscreen even if it is fictional. »
