Thanks to cloiser_trish and polytikal, I found out that Erica Durance had an interview with TV Guide today.

This week on the CW's Smallville (Thursdays, 8 pm/ET), the increasingly intrepid reporter Lois Lane decides that to "catch" a superhero, one must become one. Literally. In Part 1 of our Q&A with Erica Durance, the actress discusses Lois' wild plan, shares the secrets behind her skintight outfit, and previews Smallville's next step toward the Superman mythology's famous love "triangle."

TVGuide.com: Let's talk about this week's episode, "Stiletto": What is Lois up to?
Erica Durance: [Laughs] When I got this script I had such a good laugh, and I was so excited. Just the whole aspect that Lois gets this bright idea of, "What other way to get a story than be the story?" Once again, she gets into a fight and has to teach a guy a lesson, because he tries to mess with Chloe, and that gives her the idea to become a superhero. She makes her own costume — because apparently she can whip out a leather outfit on a whim — and becomes "Stiletto."

TVGuide.com: Does this ultimately fall under the heading of "ill-advised ideas"?
Durance: She finds out, as time goes by, that perhaps it wasn't her best idea. There are a couple of close calls with some of her friends, and she realizes that this is maybe not the best way to go about getting a story. But what I love about Lois is that she's willing to go and give 200 percent to something like that, and if she's wrong, she's willing to say, "Hey, I'm human, and it was a bad idea." But through all of this, she does get one thing — her first one-on-one phone conversation with the Red-Blue Blur.

TVGuide.com: A phone conversation, eh? Because in the spring preview I got from the producers, they said that the most romantic moment comes in this episode: "Phone booth. Lois. Red-Blue Blur."
Durance: What I find is really beautiful about it is that it's starting that mythology that everyone loves — Lois Lane's obsession and absolute love for the Red-Blue Blur and her kind of dismissal of Clark as this somewhat dweeby guy who works at the newspaper. But what's really lovely is you get to see Clark see Lois in a totally different light — she's smitten and sweet, and her barriers are down as she's talking to the Red-Blue Blur — and that is really romantic. I loved shooting it.

TVGuide.com: So this episode will bring Lois and the Red-Blue Blur closer, but not necessarily Lois and Clark?
Durance: It brings Lois and the Blur closer, and then from Clark's point of view, he becomes closer to Lois, because he gets to see this side of her that is so honest and very, very generous. From there, [the writers] start building things for the remainder of this season.

TVGuide.com: What's the hardest thing you had to do there in the stilettos?
Durance: When I had to swing through the roof, on the wire [harness], and kick the guy in the face, that was really hard. Here's a tidbit: I had two costumes — one I could wear while doing stunts and that I could somewhat move around in, and a "hero" version that I literally could not sit down in. They had to make me a "leaning post," where in between takes I could lean back. I was like Hannibal Lecter.

TVGuide.com: Why couldn't you sit down in the "hero" costume?
Durance: Because it was all leather, from head to toe, and the boots were past my thigh. Plus I'm in 6-inch stilettos. When I think of all the strange costumes I have worn on the show, this one takes the cake!
Next week, in Part 2 of our Q&A: Erica Durance reflects on one of this season's most challenging episodes, then looks ahead to a big season-finale showdown. (And no, we're not talking about that one.)

That's weird that they're having Lois suddenly think of Clark as a dork. I mean, it's understandable that they're doing a tribute to the comics/other verses but I am not sure if they can pull it off. A part of me is guessing that she's comparing him to the RBB but even then, she knows that Clark is heroic in his own way and has acknowledged that.

IDK ... I hope it's better than it sounds.

There's also a spoiler up on KSITE:

Episode #8-22: "Doomsday"
May 14, 2009

UPDATED 4/22/09: Erica Durance revealed today in a radio interview that there is a fight between her and another female character in the season finale. (Our money's on Tess!)

Isn't that cool? Lois's kickass fighting skills are CANON, you see, and it should be awesome to watch. I hope it's Tess because I miss their scenes together. They have a great dynamic. :)

Feel free to share your thoughts!

I KNOW, RIGHT? There goes my theory about the running around and throwing out answers. ;D

I wonder if Clark will borrow Ollie's voice distorter so Lois won't recognize him. :D
miss sullivan: [sv] lois; sneeze.burningqueen on April 23rd, 2009 01:18 am (UTC)
Yeah the other thing I was about to say was that as much as I love her, I must say that Lois Lane has to be one of the dumbest fictional characters ever for not recognizing Clark as Superman and SV!Lois is finally about to take up that mantle. Hurrah!
svgurl: lois lanesvgurl on April 23rd, 2009 01:48 am (UTC)
She really is. I mean, anyone who works with Clark Kent should know but she especially looks stupid for not being able to figure it out. I mean, did you see in Superman Returns? Jason looked at the picture of Superman and then Clark and HE got it.

Looks like they're about to make her iconic in one of the ways that doesn't exactly reflect well on her character. :\
miss sullivan: [sv] lois; committed.burningqueen on April 23rd, 2009 01:53 am (UTC)
But let's not get into the Returns Lois characterization, okay?
svgurl: lois cape lovesvgurl on April 23rd, 2009 02:02 am (UTC)
Which makes it even WORSE.

But let's not get into the Returns Lois characterization, okay?
I'm all for that. I can't stand Bosworth's version of Lois. :\
miss sullivan: [sv] clois; bride.burningqueen on April 23rd, 2009 02:05 am (UTC)
Me neither. Although I do quite enjoy SR!Clois. And Brandon was good.
But Kate Bosworth was just bad casting, I'm not even sure it was all her fault.
svgurl: clois s8 promosvgurl on April 23rd, 2009 02:32 am (UTC)
I didn't mind SR!Clois and yes, I liked Brandon too. He was funny in his dorky Clark persona. Not enough Clark was one of my issues with that movie.

But Kate Bosworth was just bad casting, I'm not even sure it was all her fault.
I doubt it was ... it's the fault of whoever cast her. She just doesn't give me the Mad Dog Lane vibe that I expect from a Lois Lane. :\
miss sullivan: [sv] clois; elevator.burningqueen on April 23rd, 2009 02:35 am (UTC)
I wanted more Clark too!

There's a scene on the special features of the DVD, the, like, making-of documentary or whatever, and it has Bryan Singer saying "yes, okay, Kate Bosworth is Lois Lane. She has to be Lois Lane" and it makes me D: D: D:

I am a bit sad they're not making a sequel to it though, because there was a lot of potential, IMO.
svgurl: clois s8svgurl on April 23rd, 2009 03:01 am (UTC)
I was sad at the lack of Clark in SR.

Oh, Singer ... I don't know what he was thinking.

Are they really not going to make a sequel? That's too bad. Did the movie not do as well as expected? I don't remember what the final verdict was.
miss sullivan: [sv] clark; scarecrow.burningqueen on April 23rd, 2009 03:08 am (UTC)
They were throwing around script ideas for awhile but then a couple months back the WB said that the next Superman movie is definitely not going to be a sequel to this. It's up in the air if Routh is going to stay on (he has a contract but I never heard anything definitively about that. I doubt they'll keep Kate, though, because so many people didn't like her. but they're also searching for a script and a director and who knows when anything'll get off the ground.

SR was really expensive to make and ultimately didn't do as well as people would have liked. And a lot of people didn't like it, what with all the criticism of it being nothing more than a three hour love letter to Richard Donner and all that. Although personally I loved it, but I can see why people didn't.
svgurl: lois and loissvgurl on April 23rd, 2009 03:43 am (UTC)
Hmm ... I heard that Routh would be around for the next movie but I haven't heard anything about Bosworth yet. I'm betting we won't see anything for another few years, if that's the case.

Although personally I loved it, but I can see why people didn't.
I didn't hate it but I didn't really love it either. I heard the mixed reviews too ... I guess we'll just have to wait and see what they do. :)
