The population of Smallville is about to be two fewer. That's the report from EW.com, which is citing a source close to the production of the show who says two characters from the CW science-fiction drama will be killed off later this season. Yikes! So who are the two unlucky stiffs?
When Kristin Kreuk began playing Lana Lang on the drama Smallville, she was 18 years old. Now in her prime at 25, the actress is apparently looking to branch out and make the transition to superstardom.
According to the snoops over at TVGuide.com, Kreuk is asking to not be back as a regular for Smallville's recently announced eighth season. The report states that both Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum (who plays young Lex Luthor on the show) have essentially given notice that when the show goes back into production for what is likely its final season, they don't want to return as stars, but wouldn't mind dropping in for a few episodes.
Both Kreuk and Rosenbaum are two of four actors to be regulars since the show's inception (Allison Mack and Tom Welling being the others), and losing half of the show's core could be ...Read more
It's a little too early to call the CW's Smallville the Titanic, but there are definitely some icebergs on the horizon, and those lifeboats are looking awfully comfortable.
The show is currently in its seventh season and has been renewed for an eighth, but next season will look a lot different. The latest crew member rumored to be on the way out is Allison Mack, the fan favorite who plays Chloe Sullivan.
A recent rash of defections from the show has Mack thinking she should do the same, unless producers make staying worth her while, according to TVGuide.com, which cited "inside sources."
"[Smallville producers] need Chloe now more than ever--and Allison's people know it," the source told TVGuide.com. Mack's people are allegedly in negotiations to sign her for next season, and the actress has a ton of leverage on her side.

The Smallville universe is certainly living up to its name a little better with each passing month. In early March, reports surfaced that Smallville mainstays Michael Rosenbaum and Kristin Kreuk, who play Lex Luthor and Lana Lang, respectively, were intending to downsize their roles on the show and begin their post-Smallville careers.
Both actors have reportedly worked out deals to spend less time on the show next season, appearing in a fraction of the episodes they typically act in. This happens to coincide with what is almost certainly Smallville's final season--its eighth.
While the loss of Lex and Lana would seem to be a deathblow for the drama about young Superman, things got even a bit worse yesterday. The creative duo who started the show, Al Gough and Miles Millar, announced that they are leaving Smallville at the conclusion of this season.
The news came via an open ...Read more
