Jimmy Olsen

Played by Aaron Ashmore

Henry James "Jimmy" Olsen (Aaron Ashmore) is a photographer who works for the Daily Planet in Metropolis. He is romantically linked to Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) and marries her in season 8 of "Smallville." At one point, he believes that Clark Kent (Tom Welling) is the "Good Samaritan" who saves people from disaster in Metropolis, but when Clark and Oliver Queen (Justin Hartman) trick him, he is led in another direction.

Jimmy sacrifices his life at the end of season 8 to save Chloe from Davis Bloome (Sam Witwer), otherwise known as the villain Doomsday.

Memorable Quotes:

"I didn't peg you as the kind of guy with a secret identity."

"No. No, I'm not buying it. That whole 'you're here one second, and then you're not'? You took a bullet, and the next day, you were fine. I mean, it's like you're some kind of super... guy."
