According to the end credits. The actor is Terence Stamp, who played General Zod in the first two Superman movies.

The seating chart for Helen and Lex's wedding is coded in red, yellow and blue...the colors of Superman's uniform.
In "Exodus"

This is the first time characters Pete and Lionel meet on-screen - a scene possibly well overdue given how Lionel "ruined" the Ross family's creamed-corn business.

Besides the world domination part, most of Jor-El's speech to Clark about who he is was taken from the first Superman movie.

Did you know that Marlon Brando (Jor-El) was paid 4,000,000 for his small part in the movie and he did not memorize his lines! His lines were on the diaper of the baby in the movie!
In "Rosetta"

Christopher Reeves character Dr. Virgil Swann is a reference to Curt Swan, he drew many Superman and Superboy comics in the 60's and 70's.
