Meet Booster Gold! 'Smallville's' Eric Martsolf talks about playing the jerk with the heart of... well, you know

When we watched Friday's Tom Welling-directed "Smallville" episode, "Booster Gold," we found Metropolis's newest hero to be... well, a little bit obnoxious, at first. He swoops in out of nowhere, saves a life, and subsequently basks in the glory, demanding attention and press and girls in gold hotpants. He's kind of an egomaniac."Whoa," says "Days of Our Lives" actor Eric Martsolf, who plays Booster in the episode. "That's harsh!"Okay, okay. He's an egomaniac with a heart of gold."He can easily be construed as a jerk," Martsolf tells us. "He may be an egomaniac and an ass, but the lesson here is that there's more than meets the eye when it comes to people. It turns out that Booster's much more than an egomaniac.

'Smallville': A Peek At the Superman Suit

With the final season of 'Smallville' wrapping up and the "no tights, no flights" doctrine out the window, it was only time before the Superman suit officially made its way to the series. In promo pics from 'Prophecy,' the penultimate episode of the series, Clark and Lois are seen with the suit in the Fortress. The suit is definitely more 'Superman Returns' rather than 'Superman.' The "S" is smaller and the material looks sort of scaly. 'Smallville' executive producer Kelly Souders teased 'Prophecy' to our own Laura Prudom. Besides the return of Kara, Souders said there's a "poignant takeaway" for Lois and Clark moment at the end of the episode. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/04/22/smallville-prophecy-superman-suit/

'Smallville' 10.18 Promo: Booster Campaigns to Replace The Blur

The Blur finds a "rivalry" in another superhero, Booster, when " Smallville " returns on April 22. After everything that happened with the VRA, Lois tells Clark it's best to make "Clark Kent" forgettable and awkward so people don't suspect he's The Blur.   However, the two are stunned when a fame-hungry superhero from the future, Booster Gold (guest star Eric Martsolf), sweeps into town and begins making saves and posing for press ops, completely winning over the city of Metropolis. Booster begins his campaign to take The Blur's place as the "World's Greatest Superhero" and tries to charm Lois into writing a story about him, but she's not having his antics and begins her own campaign for The Blur.    Read More... http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00039831.html

'Smallville' Debuts Promo for Final Episodes

As it is getting closer to the end of " Smallville ", The CW has released a promo for the final episodes. A short one, the video does not include any footage from the episodes but does hint that Clark will find out his true identity as he is heard saying, "I finally know who I am."   Used in the video is John Williams' classic score from the original 1978 Superman movie. Also, the promo features the word "believe" which is likely taken from the famous Superman movie tagline, "You will believe a man can fly."
