1. Lizzy Caplan

The CW / Via

Caplan played Tina Greer on 2 episodes. She used to hang around Lana all the time and Lana would be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" And then she went crazy.

4. Brian Austin Green

B.A.G. played Metallo. He was a Daily Planet reporter that was experimented on by Zod and now has a kryptonite heart. Yikes.

9. Ian Somerhalder

The CW / Via

Somerhalder played Adam Knight (an obvious ode to Batman) on several episodes. He was dating Lana until she started uncovering his secrets such as him spying on Clark... him working with the Luthors... oh, and him being DEAD.

11. Jane Seymour

New Line Cinema

WEDDING CRASHERS. (Yes, I chose this as opposed to the TV show she starred in 1993-1998, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. She was also in an episode of How I Met Your Mother.)

12. Miranda Cosgrove

No, you are not crazy. That is NOT Miranda Cosgrove. However, she did provide the voice! She was the voice Lana Lang, age 5, in the pilot.

EVERYTHING. The list goes on and on but some of my favorites are Enchanted, Catch Me If You Can, The Master, Man of Steel, The Fighter, The Muppets, etc.

The CW

Brody played Justin Gaines, a cartoonist who was hit by a car and lost the ability of his hand. The meteor shower gave him the power of telekinesis and he used it to woo Chloe and murder Principal Kwan.
