Well, apparently, they're moving ahead with the new SciFi Channel Flash Gordon series after all.
Actor Eric Johnson, 28, who played Clark Kent's romatic rival "Whitney" on the first season or so of Smallville has been cast as Flash.
None of the other roles have yet been filled, although the show's supposed to debut in August. That bodes well...
No real opinion on this guy as yet. He's blond, so they won't have to go the bleach route that so plagued Buster Crabbe, and he's got a good chin. He's also not quite as young as I thought he was – 28 is a pretty good age for Flash... if they let him play that. If they go the "teen" route with this, I'm going to be pissed.
As I recall, though, wasn't he so boring on Smallville that they wrote him out of the show by having him join the Marines and be killed in Iraq?
Oh well. Still hoping that this show doesn't suck and kill the franchise for another decade. I also still haven't heard if it's going to be updated or not – but I bet it will.
I hate Hollywood. But I love movies/TV. Go figure.
