SDCC: Upcoming guest star talks about Tom Welling
James Marsters appeared at SDCC yesterday for the Caprica panel, and the moderator, Geoff Boucher from the L.A. Times, asked him about Smallville. I already posted about what James said, but here's a complete transcript, if you're interested.

GB: You're gonna be on Smallville pretty soon, is that right?

JM: Yeah! They're gonna come and kick my butt again. Yeah, I'm going to the 200th episode.

GB: 200! Wow. That's amazing. Why do you think that show has resonated so long?

JM: I think because Tom Welling still looks hot. He moisturizes, so they could go for another five years.

GB: Oh, his skin looks young?

JM: Yeah, he looks fabulous! That's your basic job on television, man. You gotta be the freshest little piece of fruit that you can have, you know?

GB: Does that make you hate him in any way?

JM: No, not at all.

GB: Nothing but love?

JM: He is smarter than you think he is. Like, a lot smarter. Because he's the first to tell you, man, "you know, I don't play an intellectual character." And he's actually a bit nastier than you would ever expect either.

GB: And he's really not stupid, okay!

JM: No, he's not, at all, and a really good director. One of their best, actually. Yeah.

Watch a clip!



Later James talked a little about Brainiac.

JM: Brainiac is just ALL manipulation. He just pretends he cares about you, but he doesn't care about you at all.

And that's why we love him, James. :) I can't wait to see what he's up to in S10. And thanks to ophelia_77, who was there, you can also download clips of these two parts from MU HERE and HERE.

Tom's personal trainer mentioned him on Twitter again recently.









Is it terrible that I hope this means Tom has a shirtless scene coming up? :) And I love that he has become a role model because of his business savvy and success. He must be on top of the world these days.

I'm always excited to James in anything.

You must be up so late! Go to bed and dream of shirtless Tom!!

I stayed up WAY too late catching up on everything! I'll have to go to bed early tonight so I'll be fully rested for Tommy tomorrow! :)

Wow! I'm amazed at the stuff you manage to find! Tom's personal trainer?? Never heard of her before! She does a lot of name dropping is she? :D
And I've been wanting to see that JM clip. He's a lot of fun! And he knows what people want to hear about!

She popped up on my radar last year, when she first mentioned Tom, and I bookmarked her Twitter then. :) Back in Dec/Jan she posted a few intriguing tweets that had us guessing that Tom and Jamie had just climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro!

JM is a delight, onscreen and off. So glad he'll be back!

That's awesome and Tom does look like a nice fresh fruit! :)

Oh, there are so many naughty things I could say right now! LOL! I'll be a good girl and just say he's very yummy. ;)

And with Clark/Lionel in Transference I can only say that I would love to pluck that succulent fruit. LOL

As for smartness, isn´t it sad for Smallville and its concept of a young Superman that Tom feels the need to apologize that Clark is more emo and brawn than brain...? What about Superman´s superintellectual powers? IMO this is one of the biggest failures of SV. :(

This. Yes.

You amaze me finding those personal trainer tweets! Can you imagine getting to watch Tom workout. *Yummm* I hope we get to see the results with some shirtless scenes this season. *crosses fingers*

JM is so much fun in that video. He knows how to work the crowd.

Thanks again!!

She's mentioned Tom before, so I keep an occasional eye on her Twitter. The visual images her tweets evoke are always fun! :) I'm hoping for shirtlessness, of course, but I'm also open to snug tees, the delicious grey henley, or perhaps a certain iconic outfit? ;)

JM is great. You have to see the video to appreciate what he says; the transcript just can't communicate the humor or innuendo. Maybe he can do a commentary for S10 and finally give us some detailed stories about naughty Tom!

Smart and nasty eh? Always interesting to read what James has to say about Tom. Especially since James is an old school stage actor and it always seems that James respects him and wants folks to know that Tom may be a pretty face but there is much more to him then that *smiles*

oooh...thanks for the heads up re: work out stuff. Nice to hear that Tom is taking care of himself!

Oh and ps....I'm thinking and hoping for a "shirt-less" scene too *waggles eyebrows*
jlvsclrk From: jlvsclrk Date: July 24th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh yum! I love JM's comments about Smallville but just flipped out at the mental image of Tom all hot and sweaty from his workout. Bring on shirtless!Clark!!

PS - could I be so bold as to ask you to add the SDCC tag to this? I'm bookmarking to savour the good news over and over.

Why hasn't there been a scene yet of shirtless Clark baling hay? I mean, WTF Smallville?

And I love that he has become a role model because of his business savvy and success. He must be on top of the world these days.


He's really doing it all. He's a great example of someone with acute business acumen. He's doing it all.

No kidding! I want the scene, the slo-mo gif made from the scene, a full set of stills, and a wall poster!

He's a great example of someone with acute business acumen.

I think his business success must be satisfying for him on a whole different level from his acting. He has complete control, and no one can write off his achievements to his incredible good looks. He is truly proving himself with Hellcats.

wow! I didn't know he had a personal trainer! Fingers crossed for shirtless scene!! Or maybe he's getting in better shape, to fill out the tights even better!!! I'm about to faint...

Wasn't expecting James Marsters to come back! Wonder whats left with that character!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2010 10:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
According to her tweets, she worked with him in the past, and then they re-connected about 10 months ago. Since then she mentions him every once in awhile. Glad to know he's ready if a shirtless scene finds its way into the script! ;)

I wasn't expecting to see Brainiac again either, but whatever storyline they come up with, I'm sure JM will make it awesome. How many shows get to 200 episodes? They have to make it EPIC. And there had better be a huge party to go with it, with lots of Tommy pics!

Heh, James really knows what the fans like to hear - and Tom is one ripe luscious peach indeed!

I'm surprised Mr. Privacy is letting the trainer pimp him out like that! Lucky woman, getting to ogle a sweaty-glowy Tom!

The crowd was eating it up! :) And the rest of the panel members were amused as well.

I doubt he's aware, and she rarely uses his last name, so she usually stays under the fangirl radar. She does like to drop names, though.

Do you remember that tweet back in January when she was getting ready to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, and she said Tom had just summited? And then we looked back further and there was a tweet in December about how one of her clients (and she says she only has two male ones) and his wife decided on the spur of the moment to climb Kili. We're still wondering if that was about Tom and Jamie. :) What an awful busybody I am!

Trainer posted something again today.

The trainer posted this today (8 Aug 2010):

Outstanding workout with Tom Welling today. Red Riding Hood cast trained hard today as well. Sushi lunch now and a movie!

--------------------------------------

I had seen some of her earlier posts too, but missed that one where she mentioned the client and his wife doing a last minute trip to Kilimanjaro. I looked for it after reading your post and found it. Must have been about them.

It's so cute that they do these kinds of adventure trips together!

Re: Trainer posted something again today.

I saw that! Even on the weekends he's busy. I just hope we get to see the results of all his hard work onscreen. ;)

We could be totally off base with our speculation about Tom climbing Kili, but it's fun to think about. Not many people could do something like that on the spur of the moment! If it really was Tom and Jamie, they must be in fantastic physical shape.
