With the corpse of his former show, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, barely even cold, Brian Austin Green has already moved on. According to TV Guide, the former Beverly Hills 90210 star will take up residence in a new, probably far-less glamorous, zip code: Smallville.
Green will join the show next season for at least two episodes as, oddly enough given his last TV gig playing someone who killed cyborgs, t, the kryptonite-powered cyborg Metallo. Green will, of course, also appear as Metallo’s alter-ego, Daily Planet reporter John Corben. No word on if the actor’s role will be expanded beyond the initial episodes. Guess that depends on the ratings.
Actually, I’m kinda glad Green is getting more acting gigs. His work on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was actually pretty good and went a long way to help me forget David Silver. Who knows, if there ends up being another Terminator feature film (and there probably will) perhaps we’ll see Green pop up in that one as well? He seems to like cyborgs so anything’s possible.
The ninth, and presumably last, season of Smallville premieres Friday, September 25th on The CW.
