Sam Witwer — Crashdown of Battlestar Galactica fame — will play the villainous Doomsday in the eighth season of Smallville.
Michael Ausiello reports that Witwer will begin his series-regular role as Davis Bloome, a bartender at the Metropolis lounge Ace of Clubs. The character description continues:
“He plays down his smoldering good looks with a self-effacing wit and down-to-earth soulfulness. But he has long felt like an outsider (hence his nickname). And beneath his charismatic, easy-going demeanor lies a brooding sense of isolation and insecurity. When he begins to delve into the haunting mysteries of his true origins, a darker truth begins to emerge, one of blood and serial murders, one of survival and utter destruction – one in which he is forced to confront the true evil inside of him.”
Ausiello also has word that newcomer Cassidy Freeman has been cast as Tess, a vengeful firecracker with super-strength hired by Lex to mind his estate while he’s away.
