** It also interfered with the comic book marriage which would have originally happened in 1992 but was postponed to coincide with the TV show marriage. The resulting gap in their story arc led Jerry Ordway (the then-current writer/penciller of ''The Adventures of Superman'') to comment, "Why don't we just kill him?" [[{{ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman}} The rest is history.]]

* MethodActing: You wouldn't know it just from watching him, but John Shea took Lex Luthor very seriously. Not only did he study [[Creator/FriedrichNietzsche Nietzsche]], but he checked himself into John Jay College of Criminal Justice ''in-character'' to get a diagnosis on 'his' pathology. It's a wonder they even let him out.

** Several very famous actresses auditioned for the part of Martha Kent, all of them inspired by the "silver haired farm matron" in the Christopher Reeves films. K Callan showed up in a pink track suit and sneakers and was almost instantly given the role

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** John Shea is probably best known as Lex and playing Adam on ''Series/MutantX''. It's nice that he's still working in his 60's, but damn...Talk about slumming it as an actor.
** Jimmy Olsen is [[Film/FinalDestination being stalked by death]] every moment of his life ...Not unlike this show, come to think of it.
** As for the other Jimmy? He once saved the world from [[Film/DungeonsAndDragons Jeremy Irons' eyebrows]].
** After leaving the Daily Planet, Cat Grant parlayed her years of gossip column experience into [[Series/BabylonFive commanding a space station]].
** Inspector Henderson is initially played by Brent Jennings, better-known as JiveTurkey vampire [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Mr. Trick]] (Jennings reprises the role of Henderson in ''[[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman: The Animated Series]]'').
** Ching (that is, the [[TheOtherDarrin first one]]) ended up marrying an Earth woman named [[Series/TheCloser Brenda]].
** [[Series/CSIMiami Det. Calleigh]] moonlights as Lana Lang for an episode.
** On that note: Hey, [[Series/{{CSI}} Warrick]], nice dreadlocks!
** In Season 2's ChristmasEpisode, Jimmy Olsen's girl of the week is (fittingly) [[Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough Dr. Christmas Jones]].
** And he follows it up with dating ''Film/{{Bloodrayne}}.'' Seriously, what is it with Jimmy and these women?
** Raymond's brother [[Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond Robert]] used to be an [[CannotTellAJoke unfunny]] clergyman named "Reverend Bob".
** [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Bobby Singer]] once stole a scientists' invisible suits (maybe he needs them to help with demon hunting?)



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: An earlier script for "Seconds" had Mindy Church team up with Lex to try and kill Superman, and being punished for her crimes.
** Kevin Sorbo was in the running to play Clark/Superman. In fact, it was a toss-up between [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQpGY2m_WFA him and Dean Cain.]] (skip to 6:09 for the good stuff.)

* JustForFun/JohnMunch: Well, almost. Richard Belzer appears throughout Season 1 as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inspector_Henderson Inspector Henderson]], a jaded cop and sometimes-ally to Clark Kent. In his last appearance, Henderson is shown breaking up Luthor's wedding and placing him under arrest. That's right, [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny John Munch defeats Lex Luthor]]!

* HeyItsThatGuy / HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/TonyJay has a series-spanning role as Lex Luthor's [[BattleButler butler]], and of course his famous baritone voice is heard often.
** Lord Nor is played by Simon Templeman, best known for voicing [[VideoGame/LegacyOfKain Kain]].
** [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Commander Riker is Tim Lake]] in "Don't Tug on Superman's Cape".
*** [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Tasha Yar]]'s back from the dead, and she's brought Lex back with her.
*** Jor-El's hologram is played by none other than [[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry Chancellor Gorkon]] (or Creator/DavidWarner, as he's known to laymen)
*** Another ''Trek'' alum, [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine General Martok]], appears as the head elder of New Krypton.
*** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Chakotay]] does a mean Hans Gruber.
*** The leader of the Toasters gang is [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Vulcan Ensign Vorik]]. His [[TheHyena acting style]] here is basically the Vulcan pon farr taken to its natural conclusion.
*** We're not done yet. [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Reginald Barclay]] plays a loony with a KillSat at his command.
*** ''And'' a well-known ComputerVoice is the police dispatcher Lois hears in "Neverending Battle"!
** [[BarneyMiller Lt. Scanlon]] helps Clark & Lois track down UFO investigator Trask.
** [[Series/{{MASH}} Frank Burns]] comes to Lois with information about Superman but he turns out to be an AlienAbduction fanatic.
** [[Series/ForeverKnight Donald Schanke]] as Lucky Leon, a blend of Russian mobster and Ron Popeil.
** Lenny Stoke is played by [[Series/MacGyver Mudoc]]. Those looking for him to fall off a high place while screaming will be disappointed.
** In a bit of hindsight casting, Michael Mckean plays a younger Perry White on ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. He appears on this show as the scientist who helps create Bizarro.
** Jimmy's dad is James Read, best-known for playing Victor Bennett on ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' and George Hazzard in ''Series/NorthAndSouthUS''.
** H.G. Wells is played by [[Film/WeekendAtBernies Bernie]], who looks [[IncrediblyLamePun livelier than usual]].
*** And his older self is played by... [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Gizmo-Duck]]? Well, at least that explains how he knows how to use all that science stuff...
** Until this point, Justin Whalin was a kid actor best known for playing Anthony on ''Series/CharlesInCharge'' and older Andy in ''Film/ChildsPlay 3''.
** The MasterOfDisguise "Anonymous" is played by [[LatexPerfection several actors]], before finally being unmasked as...[[WTFCastingAgency Uncle]] [[FullHouse Joey]]??
** "Lame Brain" Johnson's mother is [[Series/TheNanny Sylvia Fine]], in a frighteningly [[EvilMatriarch reverse]] portrayal of her other role.
** Zara is portrayed by Mallory from ''Series/FamilyTies'', in a NotSoSmallRole.
** [[Series/LALaw Douglas Brackman]] went from a lawyer to omnicidal MadScientist, but at least he has hair now.
** [[Series/TheWestWing Leo McGarry]] pops up as DepravedKidsShowHost "Mr. Gadget", with [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Biff]] as his son/accomplice.
** [[Series/{{Cheers}} Diane is Lucille Newtrich.]]



** Raymond's brother [[EverybodyLovesRaymond Robert]] used to be an [[CannotTellAJoke unfunny]] clergyman named "Reverend Bob".
