'Smallville' Casts Booster Gold, Blue Beetle
Entertainment Weekly reports that SMALLVILLE has cast Eric Martsolf (DAYS OF OUR LIVES) as time-traveling superhero wannbee Booster Gold for the episode Booster.
Also in the episode will be Jaren Brandt Bartlett (THE TROOP) as the current alien armor-wearing Blue Beetle, Jamie Reyes.
According to TV Guide, Sebastian Spence (FIRST WAVE) will appear as previous comic book Blue Beetle, Ted Kord. He was the second version of the character (inspired by the golden age Beetle, Dan Garett), begining in the 196o’s for Charlton Comics, and later acquired by DC and teamed with Booster Gold as humorous team for a Justice League run in the 1980’s.
Producer Brian Peterson describes the SMALLVILLE Kord role as a “captain of industry who has lost a valuable weapon…the scarab. He’ll cross paths with Booster Gold, Jaime Reyes, and, of course, Clark.” So at a guess, not appearing in costume as a Blue Beetle.
DC Entertainment creative honcho Geoff Johns wrote the episode.
