Kristin Kreuk, who spent seven seasons playing Lana Lang on “Smallville,” returns to TV tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW Network in another series about an attractive woman and a man of mystery who fights for right.
The big difference in this show, the latest incarnation of “Beauty and the Beast,” is Kreuk’s character will be in the middle of the fights.
Kreuk plays Catherine Chandler, a hard-nosed homicide detective who meets science-experiment-gone-bad Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan) during an investigation. Keller keeps to the shadows because of a very beastly side that can emerge. Although Vincent’s been watching over Catherine for years, she does OK taking care of herself.
