Marsters In Smallville Magazine #11
Issue #11 of the Official Smallville Magazine is now
hitting newsstands. It offers a comprehensive look at what's
to come in Season 5, and interviews with folks like Tom Welling
and new cast addition James Marsters.
Bernstein talks to Marsters a news extra, where he talks about
playing Brainiac on the show. Here are some highlights.
his character of Brainiac: "I play a being that was created as a computer system
on Krypton. A man named General Zod wanted to take over Krypton's
ruling council, reprogrammed me and tried to have me take over
the planet, but in doing so, destroyed Krypton. Except I arrived
and came to Earth and find the most beautiful planet, almost
better than Krypton, really. Except that there are these horrible
creatures called humans who are killing all of the other animals,
and destroying all of the forests and killing the atmosphere.
You can tell scientifically this species has about 100 years
maximum to live, so why don't we just kill them off now and
take this beautiful planet? Kryptonians think in long terms.
This will be a beautiful planet for millions of years. So I'm
trying to convince Clark [Kent\ and seduce him into stopping
thinking like a monkey. I'm trying to get him to step up and
be more than he thinks he is."
working on Smallville was appealing to him: "Because Al Gough is a cool dude. He's got a good mind,
he's very easy to understand. He takes a lot of different information
and synthesizes it in his opinions. I like him a lot. And he's
taking a myth that we think we know really well, and he's not
turning it on its head, but he's turning it on its side. How
do you get from this little farmboy to the savior of the world?
And how does Clark, more importantly, go from being a boy to
being a man?"
