Beauty and the Beast: Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan Preview a New Kind of Superman for The CW

Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk returned to Comic-Con Thursday with a new super man at her side — her Beauty and the Beast co-star Jay Ryan.

The pair, who are headlining The CW’s reboot of the ’80s hit, entered TVLine’s Con interview suite to discuss their familiarity with the original CBS series (limited), the story behind how Ryan’s “CW-ized” beast got all furry (chemicals and rage are involved) and whether Smallville fans will hold out for this hero the way they did for Clark Kent (“It’s a very different show”). And watch how excited they both get when I bring up the possibility of original beauty Linda Hamilton guest-starring…

  1. If the show was a follow up of the original and the new beast was Vincent and Catherine’s son, then of course Linda Hamilton could be the mom… then again, she’d be dead, lol.

    Can’t believe they’re rebooting this, can’t Hollywood think of anything new these days. Smells like a big fail to me and it’s on the CW so there’s the biggest fail of all.

  3. Jay says:

    Hoping this gonna be the next hit for CW, so far it has been getting a lot of buzz.

  4. Jess says:

    Kristin seems really cute and funny. I’m really going to watch this now. I’m sort of excited, so I hope it’s good and lasts more than one season.

  12. Elliot says:

    I love Kristin! I am so glad to see you interview her Michael! I first started following you for the Smallville spoilers, so I hope you keep up the great work with her new show.

  13. Rashad says:

    Jay and Kristen are both GORGEOUS people…WOW!

  14. aim says:

    Hollywood has a hard time with original shows, because the best of them always end up being cult faves but never record breaking ratings….but some do end up surprising execs. But this show looks good esp with KK in the lead.

  15. Emily says:

    I love Kristin Kreuk as a person, but this pilot was not good. Not good at all.
