Question: You say, like, nothing about Smallville. I can't wait for the season to start again! Tell me anything you can, please!
Answer: Someone's got a short attention span. Anyway, exec producer Al Gough confirms that James Marsters' Brainiac could appear in as many as 10 episodes this season beginning with the Sept. 29 premiere. And don't expect him to resemble a certain bleach-blond vampire. "He doesn't look anything like Spike," Gough says. "He doesn't have an English accent, he doesn't have blond hair. But it's still James. I mean, he has those incredibly chiseled cheekbones and he brings a great sort of sinister edge to the show."
