Smallville and Supernatural in TV Guide - I worship at the television altar
Smallville and Supernatural in TV Guide
Smallville and Supernatural are featured in TV Guide's October 11-17, 2010 issue. I think scans have already made the rounds, but of course I always have to make my own. :) Damian Holbrook, who pretty much single-handedly ensures that Smallville gets lots of love in TV Guide Magazine, wrote a full page article on the upcoming 200th episode. Click for BIGGER.

Jensen Ackles earned a shout out for his first foray into directing with next week's episode of Supernatural.

And just for fun, here is another vintage Tom Welling interview, from the July/August 2002 issue of Dreamwatch (#94). I've heard the story about the hotel pool he tells (he's so charmingly self-deprecating!), but I've never seen the article before. Click for BIGGER.

Clickable thumbnails of the article.

I've had fun tracking down and sharing these early interviews. It's like stepping into a time machine and visiting fandom during the years I missed the first time around, since I didn't start watching the show until later. I'm so glad you're enjoying them, too!

The fact that we (and Clark) get to meet Future!Clark is so freaking awesome that I can't believe we're only finding out about it now. Can we PLEASE skip Supergirl and go straight to Homecoming? GAH!

Thanks for the scans!

I know! I've been excited for everything we've heard about Homecoming: the nostalgic look back, the glimpse of the future, and the reunion itself. And James Marsters' return, of course. But I had no idea that Clark was going to see and possibly interact with his future self, I can't wait to see that!

Future Clark? So what they're saying is that we'll have not one, but TWO Tom Wellings on our screen at the same time?! :D *happy fangirl*

That's how I'm interpreting that quote! And one of them will be Superman!! *twirls*

Thanks for the old interview. God, he was so precious! I think its such a shame that he cut himself off from interviews for so long. He really comes across as humble and genuine and intelligent in them. Seems to me his work ethic comes very much from his Dad.

I'm trying not to think too much about upcoming eps.

I agree, the more of these old interviews with him I read, the more impressed I am with him. I joined fandom just as the drought was starting, so it's been such a treat to find all of these now.

I don't want to discount the choices Tom makes every day to be the incredible man he is, but his parents obviously raised him right. His combination of professionalism, hard work, generosity, decency, and kindness is exceedingly rare, and almost unheard of in someone who has achieved his level of celebrity.

Thanks for the Dreamwath scans! I've read quotes for the interview but I never saw the whole thing!

I'm glad you enjoyed the article! Thanks for your comment!

I can't wait for Homecoming and for present Clark to meet future Clark! *yay*

Thank you for sharing this wonderful interview! It's great hearing Tom talk about Clark and how relatable the character is. He's so insightful and it's great to get to look back at these old interviews now that were almost 10 years into the show. Loved the quote about his father. That seems to sum up how I see Tom's work ethic and I great when we get a slight glimpse into Tom's life.

Damian Holbrook said on Twitter today that future Clark will be wearing the glasses!

I have to admit I love Tom's openness in these early interviews. It's so fascinating to hear his insights, not only into Clark and the show, but also his experiences, and life in general. I think he's always been wise beyond his years.

My TV Guide came yesterday, and as soon as I saw that article,my first thought was when you would put it up!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: October 7th, 2010 06:49 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL! I heard in the morning that there was a feature on the 200th episode, but I had to work late. I was very impatient to see it! :)

I bet you were! It was a nice article, wasn't it?

You are so right about his work ethic. I love that about him. I love that he says he enjoys coming to work everyday and you can't ask for much more than that. So true!! What an insightful guy, even at 24!!!

Who is on the cover of the TV guide?? I'd like to pick it up at the store.

Tom had a lot of enthusiasm for the show in the beginning, and I think he does today, too. That's pretty amazing. I don't think Smallville would have reached this tremendous milestone with any other actor in the role. They owe David Nutter the world for finding Tom, and refusing to take no for an answer from him.

The TV Guide issue has Michael C. Hall from Dexter on the cover, holding a baby bottle.

Oh, thank you so much for the vintage interview, I'm so glad you're posting these when you can. I didn't get to watch the show until it was a few years in as it didn't come in my country so it's really great to read about that stuff.

And I just want to take young Tom and give him a hug, he's just adorable. And so insightful. And he's matured so much over the past ten years, it's really exciting and inspiring.

I think I'm going to be a basket-case when this is all over. I really will.
