I don't know if this is true or not but my husband read something in some news group that the guy who plays Lex (sorry I should really know his name), wants to leave the show. Has any one else heard this. If it is true the timing is so bad, as Lex just distinguished all the good he had in him and the battle between him and Clark is about to get really serious. Let me know if you have heard this rumor and any other information you know about this. Thanks

yeah his character will die. and they are going to bring in Doomsday. I'm not sure who is going to play him. it will be interesting to see. My husband is not to keen on this, he says they are going off the timeline of the comics. I really love smallville and i'm looking forward to the next episode and the next episode after that. :)

My husband will be disappointed in this change as well. It is too bad Lex wants to leave. It is a really good show and is unfortunatley really under rated, I can tell the writers are really working towards something.

Yes, I heard this too. But I also heard that Kristin Kreuk, aka Lana, might leave too. Both their contracts are over this year, so maybe they want out. The show wouldn't be the same without Lex (Michael Rosenbaum). They really need to make him more evil and push Clark into the real Superman roll already. Enough with boy wonder living on the farm business. When is Superman going to start doing something with his life and start making a difference by saving lives. Right now all he seems to care about is his close friends and Kara (his cousin). I though Superman was supposed to help people everywhere, not just his friends in his home town.

I think you are about to get your wish. The episode on Thursday seemed to mark the begining of the battle. Lex has compltetly lost it now. I see the show taking on a much darker theme very soon. Lana is in some kind of altered state at the moment and was not on the last show. Her character is not really necessary any more as it is about time Clark and Lois get together, but they are not headed in that direction yet. Keep watching, I think things are about to get a lot more interesting.

I think he confirmed will not play in season 8 you can read some news from the Kryptonsite here http://www.kryptonsite.com/. It's sad to see one of the longest and best actor in the series has gone for now because it was him that make the story very interesting. The character he hold is so great with all the money, power, and his hunger for knowledge. The way Lex express his words and attitudes shows that he is the kind of man who can protect his own wealth and power. Great character!!

i checked kryptonsite.com & it's true that michael rosenbaum's leaving smallville. he will still be in some of the episodes in season 8 but he is no longer a regular. kryptonsite also mentioned a new female villain. can't wait for the final season. kryptonsite said it's coming out on september.

It is going to suck that he is leaving!!! He was the best Lex I am afraid if he leaves the show might go downhill. I also heard something about the creators dropping out of it too. Well we all know the show is going to end sometime, the closer Clark is to flying the closer the show is to ending. BOOO!!!

I thoroughly enjoy Michael Rosenbaum's portrayal of Lex Luthor in Smallville. I think he gave the character depth and I feel his is the most complex personality of them all. It would be a total shame if they lose him. I'm not so sure if the fans would easily accept a replacement actor to play Lex. I would be having a hard time myself if that happens.
