Kryptonian & The Beast: Contrasts Between Clark Kent and Vincent Koslow
While attending the TCA, Beauty and the Beast executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders were asked to draw comparisons between this show’s Vincent Koslow and Clark Kent from Smallville, which they had been executive producers on as well.
“Vincent never started as an outsider,” Peterson says. “He was in the military, he was a doctor, he was on a very different track and never experienced what it was like to be an outsider, to feel like an alien, all the things that Clark, from the very second he was born, had started to feel. It’s created a very different person and a very different approach to being a hero for Vincent. Clark was very guided by the morality of his parents. Vincent is a beast. There are times when he’s out of control and there’s times where he may not do the right thing. Catherine is going to have to deal with that as somebody who works within the system.”
Adds Souders, “What we learned after a decade is that there are rules to heroes and there are expectations. The complication is it’s [Vincent] a superhero who doesn’t necessarily have total control over himself.”
“[Clark's heat vision] was so nicely handled in one episode with his dad and a burnt scarecrow and he’d gotten it under control,” notes Peterson. “Whereas, Vincent is learning that his powers are more and more out of control as the season progresses, which is the opposite problem Clark had.”
Beauty and the Beast, which stars Kristin Kreuk as Catherine Chandler (Beauty) and Jay Ryan as the Beast, will premiere on the CW this October.
