Two weeks prior to the season nine premiere of Smallville, the series has made a major casting announcement:
Julian Sands - who has appeared on 24, The Ghost Whisperer and Castle, among other shows - will guest star on the CW hit as a young Jor-El. He’ll appear on an episode in November when it’s revealed that his character arrived with Zod and the other Kandorians.
As Smallville fans know, with the exception of a brief appearance as a vision in season three, Jor-El has been heard from, but never seen. For now, Sands is set for just one episode.
