Lindsay Hartley Cast in SMALLVILLE

Lindsay Hartley

Alright ladies, tissues out. This one is a real heartbreaker: Lindsay Hartley has been cast in the eighth episode of the final season of SMALLVILLE, according to TVGuide.com.

I have nothing against Mrs Hartley: I have never seen her act and I love Smallville. But there is one small issue: she is the wife of Justin Hartley, who plays the ab-alicious (new word!) Green Arrow.

Can you hear a crazy lady sobbing hysterically? Yep. Guess who.

Lindsay Hartley is a soap opera princess who starred as Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald Crane Winthrop (yeesh!) in the soap Passions which ran from 1999-2008, where she met her future husband. She has also had a role on Days of Our Lives and will be starring in an upcoming arc on All My Children.

According to executive producer Kelly Souders: “Her character is a woman who takes matters into her own hands, and those hands are wickedly dangerous! She won’t be working with Justin but she’ll have her hands full with Clark!”

A lot about hands. Hmm…is anybody out there with comic book encyclopedic knowledge in their noggin? Is there a female superhero with magical hands (I don’t mean it like that-get your mind out of the sewer!)

The eighth episode is entitled “Abandoned”. Smallville returns to The CW this Friday at 8/7c.
