heavyweight Ving Rhames
has joined the cast of the Smallville
spin-off pilot starring newcomer Will Toale
as Aquaman née A.C. Curry. Rhames, whose last TV venture was USA Network's Kojak
revival, will play McCaffrey, a lighthouse keeper (not to be confused with a light housekeeper) who serves as a mentor to A.C. His first bit of advice: "Steer clear of tartar sauce."
