It's been a while since John Schneider left Smallville--or, should I say, it's been a while since Jonathan Kent left us by dying of a heart attack? He is returning to The CW, though, playing another one of those father roles--but Clark Kent ain't getting his adoptive dad back. Someone else will.
Schneider's joining the cast of another CW drama, 90210, and he's set to play Liam's stepdad from the second episode of the show's upcoming season. You might know that Liam's not exactly chummy-chummy with his stepdad, who works as a plastic surgeon, sources told us.
And things are bound to get a little more complicated when Liam returns from his "scared straight" program where he was sent to at the end of the last season. Imagine the conflict.
Since dying on Smallville, Schneider jumped to The Secret Life of The American Teenager, where he was also killed off. At least he didn't suffer that fate on CSI: Miami and Nip/Tuck, where he also popped up since--although on the latter show he found himself canoodling with AnnaLynne McCord's character, too. Yeah, complications. Which we'll see when 90210 returns on September 8.
