Possible Actor Strike Could Derail Smallville Season 9

In the December 8 edition of TV Guide magazine there is an article titled "Big Plans for Smallville" in which executive producer Darren Swimmer discusses plans for a 9th season of "Smallville". With a ratings on an increase this season, Swimmer would like the TV series to go another season, but admits that "actor availability" may be a problem. As for Clark's secret identity issues, "Clark's now in full control of his powers and basically accepting the fact that he's going to become Superman. The formation of the dual identity is what he's going to be negotiating from here on out," Swimmer says. "He'll start to experiment."
The article also hints at an appearance by the Toyman in an up-coming episode.
