Hellcats update - I worship at the television altar

Hellcats update
First things first: be on the lookout for new Tommy pics! The same paparazzo who took that incredible YVR shot ran into Tom Welling yesterday.






I'm such a hypocrite. I hate that these guys harass Tom (a couple more were complaining about him on Twitter last night), but of course I still look at the pics. I guess I draw the line at invading his privacy or especially his personal space. I can't really fault someone for taking a pic on a public street from a respectable distance, but accosting him, forcing a conversation, and criticizing him to his face, as one did yesterday? That's so wrong.

ETA: The pics have turned up, but I won't be posting them. It's clear Tom didn't want his picture taken yesterday, and I want to honor that.

In Hellcats news, Zap2it is reporting that D.B. Woodside has been cast as Derrick Altman, a sports doctor for the cheer squad and Vanessa's live-in boyfriend. Most people know him as President Palmer on 24, or Principal Wood on Buffy. The role of Red has not yet been cast.



SOURCE









Almost all the actors in the Hellcats cast have Twitter accounts, and there are a bunch of backup dancers and cheerleaders who have been tweeting about the show as well. This is quite a switch from the secrecy that shrouds the Smallville set. I can remember several instances during S9 where an actor was cast in Smallville and started tweeting slightly spoilery things about their role, only to have those tweets disappear overnight, and any further talk of the show become quite guarded. I've also seen extras refer to the strict rules they have to follow on set, and the non-disclosure forms they're required to sign. It seems that the Hellcats set is quite the opposite. One of the dancers is even blogging about the show!

Check out the tweets below from a PA on the set. She's not only disclosing filming locations, she's inviting fans to come by and watch! Is this the show's way of using social networking sites to create buzz? Interesting.

I start filming TheCW #Hellcats this week! Nice weather for making a TV show. I hope it doesn't rain, oops did I just jinx myself?

07/12/10

Day one of filming for episode one of TheCW #Hellcats. Should be a long interesting day. Hopefully not to windy like today. #vancouver

Going to bed. Early #Calltime tomorrow. I can't wait for the day to be over and it hasn't started yet. #filmmakingvancouver


07/13/10

Just got to set of #Hellcats. It's early and kinda cold at 6am. Also I may have just locked my keys in the car. #waytooearly

The smell at the PNE is making me kinda sick. #Vancouver stinks in the morning, like dead people. I wonder where the trailers are??

Watching the beautiful football players on #Hellcats change into their gear. Wow, I love my job right now! #HotGuys

The grass at Pacific Col is fake. So ia the dirt. Pass it on. #hellcats

Tried to snap some pictures of the hunky footballers but my phone camera sucks. #hellcats

Almost done for the day. A couple more things for me to do and thats a wrap. Well at least until tomorrow. #Hellcats.

Done for the day, heading home. 5am calltime tomorrow. #hellcats


A fan asks: Where was filming today? Indoors?
We were at the PNE and then a move to North Van Docks. We were outside all day and it was hot! Sunburn much!! #Hellcats

Finally home from Day 1 of #Hellcats. Eating my stolen melted Peanut Cups and drinking a beer! Chillaxin!!! Up at 4am! Yuck.

Tomorrow is the Official 1st day of filming #Hellcats. UBC people, drop by for a visit. At least I'm going to have a nice tanned face!


07/14/10

Trying to snap some pics of set today. It's so hot in here! #Hellcats

Maybe even some video, if my phone doesnt crap out on me! #hellcats

Ashley Tisdale is so tiny! And so is her uniform, I'm loving her hair color! #OnSet #Hellcats

Sorry It's been a crazy day. Onto our last scene and then home. So not looking forward to Downtown shooting in the am! #Hellcats

Sorry for not getting any pics or vids today. My battery has the same life span as a fruit fly. Getting a new phone!!! Good nite!

I really have to wonder if the producers have any idea that she's sending out tweets like that. :)

Can you imagine how blessed some of the people on Smallville must feel? I want the job of the person who had to keep spritzing Tom's chest in the shower scene in Escape, take after take...

Wait...WHAT? Back yourself up there Missy. Who did what? Details?

Check out the tweets of @pursuit23, @JayMo45, @KJNeely. It´s disgusting... :(

Thanks for all your posts, tariel! I appreciate them.

I sent Val the full chronological transcript. Ugh!

And I appreciate your comments! :)

Thank you.

Assholes!

I'm with Valerie. What happened? Who was invading the man's space and criticized him to his face??
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 14th, 2010 05:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Are you on Twitter? Check out @pursuit23.

:( Am I the last person to get a Twitter account? Thank you for sending me that to read, both of those guys are jerks.

No problem! The entitlement the paparazzi feel is unbelievable.

Souper man

Slap that dude.

And yes, DB!!! I love him.

but accosting him, forcing a conversation, and criticizing him to his face, as one did yesterday? That's so wrong.


And that's why Tom and many celebs hate the paps, there's a way to get it down politely, but they force it and think it's funny--that's the entire purpose of the heinous TMZ.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 14th, 2010 05:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Usually he calls him much worse. It's so typical: any celeb who gives them what they want is characterized as a sweetheart, while anyone who doesn't perform on command is a jerk.

Another great actor for Hellcats, who also happens to be totally hot! I approve. ;)

Very interesting!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 15th, 2010 04:06 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm fascinated by what goes on behind the scenes of my shows, but I'm not used to having access to the info! Sometimes it's dangerous to peek behind the curtain, though. Maybe Smallville has been protecting me from myself. :)

As for those jerks bothering my Tommy? Grrr.
tasabian From: tasabian Date: July 14th, 2010 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Tom. He looks so trapped in those pics. I just read the twitter feed & what a sense of entitlement on that photographer.

Yay, for DB - such a talented hottie!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 15th, 2010 04:18 am (UTC) (Link)
The guy can't even buy a few groceries in peace! Sheesh. The paparazzi act like he owes them the world, even as they're insulting him, simply because they want it. And all so they can leech off his fame to make money. Yuck.

The Hellcats casting coups continue! \o/

Yummy, indeed, and a good actor! Hellcats has such a great cast.

I'm not in the show's target audience either, but that's true of a lot of the shows I watch. I'm 12 on the inside. :)

I wish they would just leave Tom alone. He's entitled to his privacy. Do they think they're going to change his mind by harassing him?

You are killing me with all these Hellcat tweets!! I SO want the same from the SV cast and crew!!

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 15th, 2010 05:00 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't know, I'm torn. On the one hand, I think it would be AMAZING, and on the other, I think a little mystery is a good thing. Maybe ignorance really is bliss, and we should just embrace the magic we see on the TV screen. :)
carolandtom From: carolandtom Date: July 15th, 2010 10:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can only say, once again, how much I hate the paparazzi. They are despicable, IMO. I can't even bring myself to read what those jerks wrote. *Sends hugs to Tom*

Thanks for the Hellcats updates!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 15th, 2010 11:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I couldn't agree more, Carol! I did read a lot of what they said, and it made me furious. Tom is such a good and generous man, and it kills me to think of him subjected to their harassment. And of course Tom is nothing but polite in the face of it all. The man defines class. *loves him even more*
chris_43 From: chris_43 Date: July 18th, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's great to see you choose not to share those pictures! *hugs* Good for you and thanks so much for all the Hellcat tweets. I'm really surprised at how open the comments are.
