Out in Film: John Glover

Idol worship: John Glover, actor.

- This prolific character actor has appeared in many memorable movie roles, including Annie Hall, Julia, White Nights, 52 Pick-Up, The Chocolate War, Scrooged, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Robocop 2, Batman & Robin and Payback.

- On television, he has been nominated for five Emmy Awards, most notably for his heart-breaking portrayal of an AIDS patient in the groundbreaking TV movie An Early Frost. He also co-starred in the television remake of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

- However, he is perhaps best known as the Machiavellian Lionel Luthor on Smallville. Other TV appearances include L.A. Law, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Frasier, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Batman: The Animated Series, wherein he voiced The Riddler.

- He won a Tony Award for his dual role of brothers John and James Jeckyll in Terrence McNally's Love! Valour! Compassion!, which he reprised in the film version. He recently won a Los Angeles Stage Alliance Ovation Award for his performance in Secrets of the Trade.

- He will next be seen as the upcoming new love interest of Ron Rifkin's Uncle Saul on Brothers & Sisters.

UPDATE: In addition to his stint on Brothers & Sisters, Glover will also be paying a visit to Heroes, wherein he'll play the father of resident baddie Sylar (Zachary Quinto).
