Pam Grier

The Smallville mythology is growing this season with the introduction of Agent Amanda Waller. The L Word star Pam Grier, who began in 1970s blaxploitation films, has taken on the role of the DC Comics villainess, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Who's returning to Smallville?

The 60-year-old Grier, whose career was revived by Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film Jackie Brown, will make her first appearance in the second hour of the Justice Society two-parter, slated to run in January, and will be sticking around for multiple episodes.
