Phil Morris Is Set for Blastoff, as Smallville's New Hero

He wasn't in last week's "Justice" episode, but tonight TV veteran Phil Morris (Mission: Impossible) drops in on Smallville as J'onn J'onzz (pronounced "John Jones"), a familiar face from the world of DC Comics. Like Kal-El, J'onn is from a different planet — Mars — hence his other handle, the Martian Manhunter. Given that J'onn is a shape-shifter, many actors could have been hired to play the part, but Smallville scored by casting Morris, who brings a mature and guiding presence (something that Clark has needed since losing his dad) as well as a solid knowledge of the comic-book world.

Premise: Fifteen years after the original, the Impossible Missions Force, including Jim Phelps, returned. Phelps was pulled out of retirement when his successor was killed and he put together a new team of agents that included Grant Collier, son of Barney Collier from the first series. Phil Morris, who played Grant, was the real-life son of Greg Morris, who had played Barney. The revival occasionally recycled scripts from the first series.
