It was only a matter of time before Amanda Waller made her presence known in Smallville, and thanks to some creative thinking at the CW, they’ve cast Pam Grier as the tough as nails agent villain.  Grier will make her debut during the second hour of the Justice Society episode penned by Geoff Johns, when the two-parter airs in January.

While I think Grier will do a cracking good job, one can’t help but wonder what CCH Pounder would bring to the table – oh, right, we’ve already seen her live action Amanda Waller on the SyFy Channel’s Warehouse 13.

    I have just become a fan of The Rack…. Er, I mean, The Wall!!! (But seriously, holy chesticles, batman…. Is _that_ why Pam Grier was so popular back inna day? I honestly hadn’t heard of her before “Jackie Brown”, but if this pic is from her heyday, I can see why she was ‘blaxploited’.)

      Really, you never heard of her before Jackie Brown? Like Brother 129, I hate that CCH Pounder didn’t get the nod cuz she’s such a great presence. But looking at this photo(thanks Stephen)…I’m not complaining. Milk does a body good, indeed.

        Nope. I was only born in 78, and her best years were (as far as I know) before I developed anything resembling “pop culture awareness”. :)
