I don't remember Dean Cain knowing me but I am fond of him and I thought I didn't have to meet a person to know them in the little voice inside.

Dean did not date Teri Hatcher during Lois and Clark. She was engaged.

CarriePookieCarriePookieOct 10, 2013

He could not say a nice word about Mindy McCready after her loss, therefore he's lost all respect.

CraigSnyderCraigSnyderSep 7, 2013

He was pretty good as Superman in Lois and Clark.
