To restore the super to Heroes, the show is going — but of course — to Smallville!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the struggling NBC drama has tapped John Glover, a.k.a. Lex Luthor’s dad, Lionel, to play Sylar’s father.

“When Sylar meets his father, he’s going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn’t want to take,” reveals a Heroes insider. “He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized.”

The Tony award winner, who recently booked an arc on Brothers & Sisters as a love interest for Ron Rifkin’s Saul, will turn up towards the end of Heroes‘ forthcoming “Fugitives” chapter.

Do you see the family resemblance?
