Five Faces I Was Surprised to See While Watching Smallville Season 1

I’m currently taking on the monumental task of trying to watch ten seasons of Smallville in my spare time. Why? Well, I followed the show for about five years, but gave up as watching it week to week became too frustratingly stupid to keep up with. But as it’s finally ending, I kind of want to see where it all went, as it was one of my favorite past times during my youth and featured my first ever TV crush, Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang.

I just finished making my way through the rather excellent season one, and I happened to see a surprisingly large amount of recognizable faces in different episodes. The show started way back in 2001, and proved to be a jumping off point for a lot of actors and actresses we know today. Here are five that caught my eye who I’m guessing you’ll recognize:

5. Lizzy Caplan

She’s been in Mean Girls, True Blood and Party Down, but way back when Caplan found herself in the fourth episode of Smallville, where she played a girl obsessed with Lana Lang, and was granted shapeshifting powers through meteor rocks. She’s responsible for the rather memorable “Lex Luther robs a bank” scene, and it’s also the episode where Clark discovers his X-Ray vision. I believe she makes another appearance later, pretending to be Lana’s boyfriend Whitney, magically home from serving overseas despite being reported dead.

4. Sean Ashmore

The X-Men veteran wasn’t given ice powers in Smallville (such an episode did happen in season one however), but he was the star of one of the most notable episodes of the season. In “Leech” Ashmore acquires Clark’s powers through a lightning strike, and quickly finds that putting school bullies in the hospital doesn’t land you hero status, but rather terror from everyone who knows you.

3. Kelly Brook

Before she was one of the world’s hottest covergirls or swimming with three dimensional piranha in a bikini, Kelly Brook had a multi-episode arc as Lex Luthor’s love interest and business rival. Despite the assets she boasts these days, they either were kept hidden during the show for ratings reasons, or they just hadn’t come in yet.

2. Adam Brody

OC vet Brody shows up at the tail end of the season as a love interest to poor Chloe, who never gets any action of her own most of the time. He’s an artist who has lost the use of his hands in a car accident, but gains the power of telekinesis. A few memorable scenes from the episode are when he kisses Chloe and clearly CGI objects in the room levitate, and the above scene where he tries to spear Clark in the chest with a chainsaw. It doesn’t work.

1. Amy Adams

This one made me laugh out loud. Usually you don’t go from “fatsuit” to “Oscar nominee” unless you’re Eddie Murphy, but Amy Adams did just that as way back when, she donned such a getup for “Craving,” an episode where she plays a fat girl who gets instantly thin using kryptonite smoothies.  She starts off in super chub mode, as seen above, but by the end she’s a svelt goddess who makes everyone around her drool. Too bad she ends up being a cannibal.

Now I’m starting season two, and I’m on the lookout for more ridiculous cameos like these. This show can be pretty retarded, but I’m enjoying reliving these memories at the moment. We’ll see if I can make it through over a 150 hours of this though.
