You might also know him from X-men. He played Bobby Drake in the movies, also known as Iceman. I think it's kind of cool he went from that to being on Smallville as Jimmy Olsen. I think he does a great job in the role of Jimmy. I hope they continue to have him in the storylines.

Wow you're right. I never thought about that before. I knew he looked kind of farmilar, but I haven't seen season 1 in so long it just kind of slipped my mind. That's kind of cool that both of them got the chance to be on the show. This season is really shaping up with Jimmy. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

thats and interesting fact. i never knew. i have season one of smallville so i'll have to go back and check. i know there are a lot of twins that you normally don't know about unless you look at their name. i think that guy in hook that played Rufio has a twin brother. i saw them in a movie together for the first time. i don't remember what movie it was, but i thought they just did a double take, but no..when i looked at the credits...brothers.

Yeah I knew that. I'm more familiar with his brother's work though..they DO tend to work together. When they were younger they did alot of things..but I knew them originally from the kids series on Nickolodean, Animorphs. His twin stepped in one of the episodes there. It's nice to see them all grown up and doing different things. While Shawn's off doing the X-Men, Aaron's working on Smallville. It's cool.
