On the third season
Michael Mckean played Perry White before he was
editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet.
You might remember him from Laverne and Shirley as Lenny, he
did some voice work on a couple of Justice League episodes,
and was a guest star on a few of the X-files. He was also one
of the rockers from Spinal Tap, and he's married to
Smallville's Martha Kent, Annette O'Toole.
