Michael Shanks As Hawkman

TV Guide has the first pic of former Stargate SG-1 star Michael Shanks as Hawkman, in the upcoming Smallville TV movie (well, a two-parter that's being stitched together) due to air early next year. The site also has an interview with Shanks, in which he reveals, “There’s no stunt guy, so I need to ace this so I don’t make Hawkman look like a goofball. It’s traditional wire work that involves strapping on this harness so that large men with giant arms can lift me up and manipulate me. I’m also swinging around Hawkman’s giant mace as a weapon. The helmet is more of a bronze-tone than a big yellow gold thing. My whole upper torso becomes a big immobile object.”

Anybody else got the desperate urge to bellow, “GORDON’S ALIVE!!!!!!!”?
