Tom Welling mentioned in a Supernatural interview
Winchester Radio talked to Guy Norman Bee, the director of tonight's episode of Supernatural, Family Matters. He also directed Asylum back in S1. It's a great interview, with a lot of insight into the making of the episode, and some fun BTS stories, including one where he mentioned Tom Welling:

One of the weekends, it was the first weekend of NFL, and Jensen and Jared and Jim Michaels, we were all going to meet to watch the football game. It was pouring outside, and so we're sitting in this booth in the corner, and this guy comes up with a hoodie, and he leans over Jared and Jensen and he starts making these funny noises, and I'm like, oh, this is weird.

The guy pulls the hood back, it's Tom Welling. And I had met Tom real briefly on Asylum, so he sat down, and started talking, and I said, "So how many seasons has Smallville gone?" He goes, "Well, this is 10, and we're done." And I didn't know this, but he's a big part of Hellcats. He's the executive producer, and he found the material, and he got it made, so he's sort of like kind of transitioning into that a little bit.

And then later Misha showed up with an actor named Colin Ferguson who's the star of Eureka, so it was really funny, because I said, "You know, if a bomb hits this place right now, three major TV shows are going to be done." It was fun. It was a sports bar, so it was full of a bunch of sweaty dudes, so nobody came and bothered them. It was kind of fun.


Listen to the entire interview at Winchester Radio HERE, or download it from iTunes HERE. He compares Sam to Ted Bundy!

I would have killed to hear the conversation at that table, but I'm glad the guys were able to kick back and relax without having to deal with fans. And I continue to love that the Vancouver boys hang out together. :)

That is so freaking awesome.

I think so, too. And now that they're all old married guys, I think it's even cuter that they play together. :)

Wow! Thanks for that! So THAT'S the story that was rumored on twitter!
The stars of 3 shows at the same table and they weren't bothered? That must be some kind of smelly bar with a sticky floor and pick-up trucks in the parking lot. LOL
I hope Tom is transitionning into producing just a LITTLE bit. But I'm hanging to what he said this summer about wanting to do it all. :)

I think I heard those rumors, something about how Colin tweeted about it from the bar, but then deleted it when he realized the fangirls might come looking for them?

That story makes me wonder how many other times Tom and J2 have hung out undetected. I'm surprised we don't hear about more sightings.

I'll be devastated if Tom disappears behind the cameras. I hope he finds acting projects that excite him once Smallville is over. But I also think it's cool that he's so into Hellcats, and evidently took the time to tell Guy all about his new project. I think it's a great show, and I'd love to know more about Tom's role in the ongoing production.

A while back, I read on a MB (and I don't remember which one) that Tom and the J's were fairly regular at a little hole-in-the-wall diner, and the people who worked there knew who they were, but everyone kept it discreet.

It's nice that they can find places where the staff are cool enough not to blow it for them. I suspect that's why Tom likes Martha's Vineyard, he seems to enjoy a certain sense of normalcy there.

So, I have to figure that Jared or Jensen called Tom and told him where they were going to be to watch the game, and for some reason, that makes me whole body tingly. Tom and his friendship with the J's is just love to me. And then add Misha and Colin? Wow, thats a hotness overload.

I have to agree, imagining the logistics of how all these hot guys ended up in one place, hanging out and watching the game, sends me straight to my happy place. :) And incognito Tom acting silly? It doesn't get much better than that.

Heh, that's so cute! And the hoodie explains how Tom gets around Van without being noticed - it's his invisibility cloak!

I love that Guy thought Tom was some kind of freak. :D

I think you're right about the invisibility. After all, how many pics do we have of him in a hoodie at all, much less one with the hood up?

Now that's a great avi!

Hey you're on LJ!

My LJ is fairly similar to my twitter: rampant objectification of Michael, Tom & Clex - if that sounds alright, feel free to friend me & I'll friend back!

(ETA: And the avi was made by the talented lapetite_kiki, Clex artist supreme!)

Wow, hooded hunks in a sports bar, with sweaty guys around... I abhor any form of sports but I would fake interest in anything just to be there and eavesdrop on that conversation. And the funny noises...

Thanks!

Doesn't he paint a great visual picture? :) And all those guys around them had no idea what they were missing, right there in their midst.

I'm glad Tom doesn't have to be guarded all the time.

Ahh, the tweet story is explained :D LOL at Tom & his stealth hoodie!

You know I thought of you first when he started talking about this, and as soon as he mentioned Colin, I knew it was the same story. I just couldn't remember the details. I even looked for your original comment, but I couldn't find it. :)

AND COLLIN FERGUSON!!! *flails*

I KNOW!! And I had no idea he was friends with Misha!

That is so cool. I'm glad that they can hang out like that without being bothered.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: November 10th, 2010 02:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Me, too. Imagine how they must feel when they're trying to relax somewhere and they see someone approaching. Everyone needs some down time.

I think they must laugh a lot together, all of them are funny guys.
