Teri Hatcher to Play Lois Lane’s Mom

Congratulations, Teri Hatcher: You are now old enough to play the parent of one of your most famous characters. EW's Michael Ausiello is reporting that Hatcher will appear as the mother of Lois Lane (Erica Durance) in an upcoming episode of Smallville, but how will the busy Desperate Housewives star find time for the role, especially since Lois's mom is supposed to be dead? Teases Ausiello: "In episode 8, titled 'Abandoned,' Lois discovers old videotapes of her mother. I think you can figure the rest out for yourself." Indeed, we can: Somehow, Smallville producers have stolen all our old Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episodes on VHS. [Ausiello Files/EW]
