Smallville: 10x09 guest star talks to IGN
More love for Tom! Alan Ritchson talks to one of my favorite interviewers, Eric Goldman from IGN.

IGN: What was it like working with Tom Welling as a director?

Ritchson:
I loved it. I can only say good things about Tom. You can't say a bad thing about the guy. He's a very giving actor, so starting from day one… I remember sitting in a hot tub one day, after shooting a scene in this water where we were freezing to death and it was so cold. And he's sitting there and he's just continuing to give me this advice during this conversation, about all that he's learned in his acting career. Just from day one, he was such a giving guy and that is a really great quality in a director. Someone who's willing to take the time with somebody to teach them, to listen, to collaborate. He's got all those qualities. He's a fine director and it was fun to work with him in that capacity.

IGN: I was a big Battlestar fan, so I know Michael Hogan can be very intimidating on screen. Was that the case working with him as well?

Ritchson:
[Laughs] You said it! It can be intimidating with him on set as well. Not on a personal level, but this guy is very dedicated to his craft. Everybody's got a method that works for them, and watching him work and focus on set and become this Slade character… He's got a fierce intensity about him that's really fun to watch happen. And it keeps you on your toes as an actor. You can't sit back and just enjoy the show. You've got to be a part of it. And with somebody like him, just by nature of how good he is, he's going to demand more of you. So for me as an actor, it was pretty intense, but a lot of fun. He's great.

Brian and Kelly have been making the rounds as well. They always make me crazy, but here are links to their interviews if you want to read them:

Smallville showrunners talk to Damian Holbrook from TV Guide

Smallville showrunners talk to Natalie Abrams from TVGuide.com

Smallville showrunners talk to Megan Masters from E!Online's Watch With Kristin

Smallville showrunners talk to Vlada from Staying In

Last night Michael Rosenbaum attended a party for The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, a documentary he recommended on Twitter recently, and a few pics have turned up.



ETA: See an unmarked version of the image above, plus another great pic, at OSCK HERE.






And finally, this last item, if true, is VERY SPOILERY, so you may not want to read it. A guy claiming to be an extra on the Smallville set tweeted the details of Clark's upcoming proposal to Lois, including the name of the episode it will be in. I have no idea if the info was legit or not. His Twitter account was deleted the next day, so if you missed it, and you want to be thoroughly spoiled, here is what he said:


* * * SPOILER SPACE * * *


Still on the set of Smallville. Watching Clark propose to Lois. It was amazing. White rose petals flew in the sky and Clark went on his knees. It was in Metropolis, by the phone booth. Episode 11. Icarus.

Thank you, as always, for posting all of these great interviews! It makes me happy that Alan has so many nice things to say about Tom! :-)

I always love reading about peoples Tommy love. He's an interesting guy, our Tom. I understand how he can seem stand-offish, and he's probably not receptive to strangers at all. But its also quite clear that he's really a nice, kind person when he feels at ease. And he seems to try very hard to make guest stars feel comfortable and at home.

Believe me, I've heard backstage stories on other shows, and "the star" can be incredibly difficult, rude and completely uninvolved with guest stars. Tom is the opposite.

And I really like that Tom seems to have no ego, and that he enjoys hanging around other hot guys.
