Geoff Johns Talks "Legionnaires" on Smallville managed to talk to writer Geoff Johns about his up-coming episode entitled "Legion" of Smallville. Here is a short excerpt of the interview where Johns talks about each of the actors that portray the Legionnaires on Smallville.

"The Legionnaires did a wonderful job. They embraced the material and along with Glen embraced the lore," said Johns. "They're a great amalgam between 'Smallville' and the comic mythology. They are done in a 'Smallville' way but they are extremely loyal and true to core center to what the Legion is all about. And I was really blown away and ecstatic that the actors they cast could play Legionnaires so perfectly. I think they are phenomenal.
"Ryan brought the perfect amount of intensity to Cosmic Boy, similar to the intensity he current has in 'Legion of 3 Worlds'. He really brought a humanity to Rokk too, that goes beyond the page. Ryan embodied the leader of the Legion to a tee.
"Alexz is Saturn Girl. You see her and you see Saturn Girl. Her demeanor, and the thoughtfulness that reads on her face at all times is exactly who Imra is.
"And last but not least is Calum, who is freaking hilarious. He was probably the one closest like his character - Lightning Lad, who captured the portrayal of Lightning Lad's early years in my head. He's fun, energetic, exciting - literally lightning in a bottle waiting to be unleashed."
