SDCC: Tom Welling talks to KTLA
KTLA finally posted their SDCC interview with Tom!


For a bigger view, click on "FULL SCREEN" in the upper left-hand corner of the video player.


I've also updated my previous KTLA entry with this video, bringing the total number of interviews to eight (Tom, Erica, Justin, Cassidy, John, Laura, Brian, and Kelly). Find the updated post HERE.

Thank you for posting this, I was hoping KTLA got an interview with Tom too! Certainly helped with my Tommy withdrawal :D

I've been waiting for this ever since they posted that pic of Tom in front of their cameras over a week ago. FINALLY! ;)

I think, however, that this is the last of the Tommy interviews. It was glorious while it lasted!

Ahhh, yes it was!!

Maybe this new, media-friendly Tom will stick around, and do some interviews for the season premiere, or the 200th episode. Although with Smallville and Hellcats both in production, I doubt he'll have even a minute to spare. SDCC and the TCAs were a big enough deal to warrant his presence, and I'm beyond thankful for that.

Oh, I love this confirmation that he's still very interested in continuing acting. I'm impressed with how thoughtful he is about answering this question too, as if he really wants to express himself accurately about this. Thanks again for the updates.

I appreciate so much that he addressed the fears we've had, and so directly. My dream of seeing Tom on the big screen after Smallville can live on!

He takes every question seriously, never falling back on some rote answer, or brushing the interviewer off. He truly seems to care that their experience is a positive and meaningful one. He's a class act, in every way.

I know it makes me feel a lot of better to actually see him articulate that he plans to continue acting. Someone did ask him a question at the panel as to what his future plans were, but all he said was Hellcats. So, its nice to have the question addressed more specifically.

He said something similar in print, to the WSJ, but it's totally different seeing him say it in person. There's no question of him being misquoted or misunderstood, and you can see in his eyes the truth of what he says. It's exciting to me not only that he intends to continue acting, but also that he wants his fans to know!

Aw, the cutie-pie. Very articulate response to the question and yay for not giving up his acting!

He's adorable! Love that smile. It's wonderful news, and, truth be told, it makes it a lot easier to reconcile myself to the idea of Smallville ending. I'm so excited to see what lies ahead for Tom. There are so many possibilities!

I want to buy my movie ticket NOW for whatever he wants to do.

Read the phone book, play a romantic lead, play a sex god. *gulp*

I know, I'm so ready to sit in the dark with a larger-than-life Tom! :) I hope he doesn't make us wait too long.

Mhmm, I would love to be able to feed that 'beast'....

*clears throat*

Anyway, it is lovely to hear him articulate his plans, and be so articulate about how much he loves cultivating these three crafts. So talented.

Also love how he wants Lex back so badly, those two in the same room together = win.

Thanks for putting this up!

It's so good to hear that he wants to continue acting; I would be devastated to think I would never see him on camera again. It's cool that all the different facets of the entertainment business are exciting to him, and he seems equally talented on the creative and production sides. He's an amazing man.

I hope he gets his wish, and convinces Michael to return, at least for the season finale.

Thanks for this great clip! I am so happy to hear again that he will continue to be in front of the camera. What a relief! Now I hope that, sooner rather than later, we get the first Tom Welling film, produced and directed by Tom, and of course Tom starring in some function. I can´t wait to see him in some such culmination of his career.

Wouldn't that be awesome? Produced by, directed by, and starring Tom Welling. I wonder what kind of story he would choose for such a personal project.

Well, it's about time!

I know! At least Tommy's always worth the wait.
