The CW’s "Smallville" has cast the role of Superman’s father, Jor-El, hiring veteran film and television actor Julian Sands, reports Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly.

Sands will appear in November for at least one episode, playing the same character that Marlon Brando played in the 1978 feature film "Superman."

Sands played villainous Vladimir Bierko in the fifth season of "24" and has appeared in numerous feature films, ranging from "A Room With a View" to "Ocean’s Thirteen."
