I say they're similar because in the movie, Clark was sort of a drifter, and in Smallville, Jor-El was known as The Drifter. Its a stretch, but I still find that very interesting.
In Smallville "Joe" was a guy who went around and didn't mind doing it with married females, then running off when they get shot.
