Smallville is getting Foxy with Pam Grier

SmallvillePam Grier, famous for her appearances in '70s blaxploitation flicks like Foxy Brown and later for her appearances in Quentin Tarantino movies, will be stopping over in Smallville. She'll be playing the character of Amanda Waller for the upcoming two-part episode with the Justice Society of America.

Amanda Waller was created in the comics and has appeared on television already in the animated Justice League series. She was ... how shall I say ... bigger than Ms. Grier. To play the character as she was created, Grier would either have to gain a lot of weight or don a fat suit.

Actually, the creators will probably just leave her as she is. Smallville is something of its own universe (as proven by the appearance of the Wonder Twins). Her appearance is slated for the episodes written by comics writer (and writer of the previous Smallville episode "Legion") Geoff Johns, so I'm already convinced it will be a good episode. Pam Grier is just icing on the cake.

I think CCH Pounder would have been better. And she would have been the second Warehouse 13 cameo for the show.

Ooh. That would've been good, too.

CCH Pounder actually did the voice of Amanda Waller in the animated Justice League series.

That is awesome!! I look forward to it! Between this and the Wonder Twins (hideous as they were), my 1970s-80s pop culture needs are sated :)
