Watch with Kristin reports that Justin Hartley, who has appeared numerous times on Smallville over the last few years as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, has joined the cast for the show’s eighth season. She says that his storylines will focus more on Oliver’s past versus his alter ego.
She also gives an update on Kristen Kreuk’s involvement with the show, now that she’s no longer a regular. “I’m also told that Kristen Kreuk (Lana) will most definitely be back for a batch of episodes—most likely six or seven—but they’re still working out the exact number.”
That’s probably six or seven too many.
