Justin Hartley & Phil Morris at Superman Celebration 2009! - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
Justin Hartley & Phil Morris at Superman Celebration 2009!
The 31st Annual Superman Celebration was held last weekend in Metropolis, IL, and Smallville was represented at the event by Justin Hartley and Phil Morris. The other celebrity guests were Noel Neill and Beverly Washburn. A number of videos have turned up on YouTube, and I thought I'd share the best of them here. Enjoy!

First we have complete coverage in five parts of a news conference that was held for media representatives. All the questions and answers are interesting and well worth watching, but I've listed a few highlights under each part. Justin is charming and funny throughout (and check out his ARMS!), and Phil Morris is just a treat!

4:49 - Phil talks about growing up in Beverly Hills.
6:22 - Justin talks about learning how to shoot a bow and arrow.

0:22 - Justin talks about how he first found out that Smallville wanted him to join the show.
2:42 - Phil talks about his comic book collection.
6:32 - Phil talks about Bulletproof, and MM without his powers.
8:22 - Justin talks about the research he did to prepare for the role of Green Arrow (continued in Part 3).

0:01 - Justin continued.
6:11 - Phil talks about how he developed the role of Jackie Chiles for Seinfeld.

0:11 - Justin expresses an interest in directing and writing.
1:45 - Phil explains why he hasn't ever played a prank on the Smallville set.
6:18 - Justin talks about the possibility that S9 will be the last.
7:58 - Justin describes his shooting schedule on Smallville.

1:46 - Phil talks about his Con experiences.

There was also a Q & A held for the public, and there are a couple of great videos of that. I'm hoping more will be posted so we can see the entire session, but in the meantime these two are wonderful!

0:01 - A little boy asks Justin if he likes Lois Lane in RL. :)
0:50 - Will there be a GA spin-off after S9 of Smallville?
2:38 - Did Phil always want to follow in his father's footsteps?
4:02 - Can Justin shoot a bow and arrow in RL?
5:04 - What is Justin's favorite part about being GA?
7:16 - What was it like for Phil to act in the original Star Trek?

0:01 - Who are Phil's and Justin's favorite superheroes?
2:04 - Who has Justin enjoyed playing more, Aquaman or Green Arrow?
2:44 - Which is easier for Justin, an episode where his part is small, or one where he is featured?
4:18 - Does Justin miss acting with Michael Rosenbaum?

Thanks for these!

You're welcome! Both of these men are so entertaining to watch. I could listen to Phil tell stories all day long, plus he seems like one of the nicest men on the planet. And Justin has such a great sense of humor. He always makes me laugh.

I'm especially glad they caught what Justin said about Michael on tape. Evidently Phil mentioned Tom in one of his answers, but no video of that has turned up yet.

They're both so pretty, even though the lighting in that press room is horrid (and Justin seems a little tired.) Lovely men. Love the answer to the pranks on the set question. (Justin: "Never!")

I always forget Phil was Jackie Chiles - proof of his acting skill. I never found Jackie at all sexy whereas Phil is sex on a platter, especially in a t-shirt!

Thanks for the links!

Lovely men.

I couldn't agree more, inside and out. Phil is such a class act, and so respectful of the material. Smallville's lucky to have him. I hope we see more of him in S9! And Justin is charmingly humble, and so funny. I am constantly amazed at this show's ability to cast unbelievably beautiful, talented people who have wonderful attitudes. I love the Smallville actors!

I never found Jackie at all sexy whereas Phil is sex on a platter, especially in a t-shirt!

I know! I was stunned when I first realized it was the same man! I wonder if Phil's son is as sweet as his dad. He certainly inherited the family good looks! Do you know him? He's on the new Stargate show with Alaina Huffman. Click for bigger:

Thanks so much for doing all this work for our viewing pleasure! I like Phil so much and I think he looks incredibly good. It's such a shame that we didn't get to see his character more! I REALLY hope he will be back in S9, he has a lot of unfinished business!

I'm glad you liked the vids. I really enjoy seeing and hearing the actors answer the questions. You get so much more out of it than when you read the answers transcribed. Justin in particular is so funny! I wish so much that Tom would do an interview sometime.

I just love Phil more every time I see him. He's such a wonderful addition to the show! I hope we see him in at least a few episodes in S9. His performance as MM/JJ is always a pleasure to watch.

Justin is fine, fine, FINE!!!!! *pets him*

I haven't decided whether or not to add him to my list. *grin*

Thanks for sharing these, Tariel!

Justin not only has a perfectly chiseled chest and amazing arms, he loves to show them off! The boy is constantly running around without his shirt on. You gotta love him for that alone. Plus he's totally funny!

This pic always cracks me up. He's simultaneously washing his dog and baking cookies, shirtless! No, that's not contrived at all! hee! Click for bigger.

"Cept...that ain't our dog.

I want to come play at your house!

Supposedly Justin has like four dogs (and a couple of cats), but that's not one of them. They had to call in a professional dog model. With its own handler, no doubt. The lengths they go to, when all we need is something simple, like this. Click it!

Hey, you! Sorry, I kind of dropped off the face of the Earth for awhile there. I was taking a little fandom break. :) I'm so glad to see you here!

Aren't they cute together? I honestly think they're two of the nicest guys around. Smallville may give us crap storytelling and zero continuity at times, but they sure know how to pick their actors, don't they? I could watch them for hours.

I really hope they bring back Phil this season.
