Allison Mack Wants The CW To Know She’s Hella Available For ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’
Crisis on Infinite Earths is hands down one of the biggest television crossover events of all time. This multiversal, several-part event incorporates some of our most beloved DC actors, including Superman Returns’ Brandon Routh, Smallville’s Tom Welling, and the OG Robin, Burt Ward. However, I couldn’t help but notice that there’s been zero talk of my favorite DC television character, nor the actress who brought her to life: The plucky Allison Mack.
Mack returned to the public eye last year in a big way with her role in the famed NXIVM sex-slavery cult. At first I thought she’d left Hollywood behind as she focused on her human bondage and trafficking project, but then I saw she recently tweeted that she’s “hella” available to be part of the upcoming crossover!
I know what you’re probably thinking: Isn’t Allison Mack in jail for “heinous” crimes? And my answer to that is simply: So what? Have you heard about all the messed up crap the guy who used to be on The Apprentice is up to? So why not let Allison play our beloved Chloe again?
Sure, she helped run a sex cult that forcibly branded and mutilated its victims, but we’ve all done things we’re not proud of in life. And Chloe Sullivan is a fantastic character!
Who can forget how her smile lit up the classroom in the Season 1 classic episode “Obscura” (when Clark finally worked up the courage to ask her to the school dance)? Or what about in Season 5’s “Arrival” when Clark rescued her from the freezing temperatures around the Fortress of Solitude and she taught him that he could always confide in her? Don’t we owe Chloe that same loyalty?
Will it be hard to see her as anything but the crazed, potentially underfed, but definitely violent woman who chased after that dude in that one TMZ video and also definitely recruited people into slavery? Maybe. But shouldn’t we, as a committed fan base, at least try?
Who’s with me?
