'Parkland' Premiere - The 70th Venice International Film FestivalIt's not a bird or a plane, it's Tom Welling finally returning to TV.

Welling played Clark Kent for 10 years on "Smallville," then segued into a few feature films. But "Lucifer" Season 3. Welling will play Marcus Pierce, the site described, "an accomplished police lieutenant who is strategic, reserved and well-respected — that is, everything Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is not. But perhaps even more annoying are all the things the gents have in common, both being charming, charismatic and 'handsome as hell.'" Pierce will develop a "connection" with fellow detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), adding to the tension with Lucifer.

Welling directed several episodes of "Smallville" and was an executive producer on the series, which ran for 10 seasons from 2001-2011. After "Smallville" he starred in the films "The Choice," "Draft Day," and "Parkland."
