Actor Gil Bellows will step into the role of Maxwell Lord on an upcoming episode of “Smallville.”
Bellows will appear in the upcoming episode “Charade” as Lord according to reports. Lord was created in 1987 by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire during their run on “Justice League International.” Lord was an amoral — though ultimately heroic — businessman who ran the Justice League for several years before betraying the DC heroes in the lead up to “Infinite Crisis.”
It’s also reported that Bellows could be back for another episode this year on the CW’s show.
Bellows may be familiar to fans of “Ally McBeal” and “The Agency.” He also appeared in the “24” movie, “Redemption”
