Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane

Teri Hatcher Teri Hatcher jumped into acting after a brief stint as a cheerleader for the NFL's San Francisco 49ers. After several small roles, she was cast in 1993 for the television episodes Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The show was a hit, and Hatcher's success on TV was matched by her success on the Internet: in the early days of the World Wide Web, Hatcher was unofficially "the most downloaded woman in the world." After Lois & Clark, Hatcher moved into feature films, including the James Bond flick Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997, with Pierce Brosnan as Bond and Spy Kids (2001). In 2004 she landed a role on another hit series, the jokey, soapy television show drama Desperate Housewives, playing as her show bio put it, "a single mom searching for love amid the sometimes sordid, always intriguing goings-on of her suburban neighborhood."

Hatcher's TV debut was as a “Love Boat Mermaid” on the TV series The Love Boat. She is also known for her long-running series of Radio Shack TV commercials with former NFL star Howie Long. Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria co-star with Hatcher many on Desperate Housewives.

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of SupermanOne of the most beloved characters in comic book history, Superman was created in 1938 by artist Joe Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel. Superman came to Earth as a baby from the planet Krypton; on Earth he had super strength, X-ray vision and could fly. His only weakness was the substance Kryptonite, which rendered him powerless. He kept his identity secret, posing as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and changing into his Superman costume with the distinctive "S" on the chest whenever he set out to do good deeds. Other key characters included his love interest Lois Lane, his news editor Perry White, and the villainous Lex Luthor. Superman was played in the movies most famously by actor Christopher Reeve, and in the popular 1950's television series The Adventures of Superman he was played by George Reeves. His popularity was renewed by the 1990s TV series Lois and Clark, starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher.

Traditionally Superman is "more powerful than a locomotive, faster than a speeding bullet and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound."

  1. I like Teri Hatcher...she's got a very charming personality and voice. I also remember her on an episode of Seinfeld long ago. That was soooo funny! I even remember her last line - "and by the way, they're real!"
