Michael Cassidy joins Smallville
TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reports that Hidden Palms' Michael Cassidy landed the role.
Cassidy, who also appeared on The O.C., will more than likely make is first appearance on the second episode of Smallville's upcoming season. His character, named Greg or Grant (depending on which source you ask), will replace Carrie Fisher as the Planet's editor. Ausiello adds that Michael Cassidy will appear in at least six episodes, meaning that if fans react positively to his character, he may stick around longer. Ausiello also points out an age problem and I must agree with him: Cassidy is 24 years old. Isn't that a bit young to be editor in chief of a major newspaper? Unless the role was lowered to some assistant editor or junior editor. Nonetheless, Cassidy will sure help bring over some fans who have been following him on The O.C. and Hidden Palms.
