Here's the Tom quote:

"Supernatural and Smallville actually shoot a block away from each other, and I'm really good friends with Jensen and Jared. Last season, at one point, I actually got off a little bit earlier than they did, and I went down to their set. They weren't there yet, and I knew some of the people on set, because they had worked on Smallville, so I jumped in the backseat of their car, and if you've seen the show, you know they're always driving their car and they're pullin' in to places and getting out of their car. So, I get in the backseat, and they were in a big hurry because they were late getting to set – very unprofessional – and they jumped in the car very quickly 'cause the crew was yelling 'We're already rolling, go, go, go.' And just as they jumped in, I reached over, and I grabbed Jensen, and I pulled him into the backseat, and he didn't know what was going on. He thought it was his stunt double, so he started hittin' me, so I started hittin' him back. And then when he realized who was who, they said 'Action,' so he jumps in the front seat, we tear down this alley, he pulls into this bar and all three of us jumped out, and we all walked into this bar, and as we walked in, the door closed and we heard 'Um ... cut?' They didn't know what was goin' on. So, I made an appearance on Supernatural. I believe I was edited out."

Okay, that is a completely different story! I knew you'd have it, if anyone did. :) Thanks so much! Do you know the source? I'm just curious if it's from a video interview or a print one.

Here's the link! I don't think I ever saw a vid clip, if there was one:

Thank you! I don't think there was a clip. It was something Kristin from WWK shared in her online column (the archives of which were all deleted when E!Online redesigned their site a couple of years ago). James calls it a more detailed version of a story Jared (again) told at a Con, but he links to Jared's story, and it's almost identical to what he said here. This is a fan's account of what Jared related at the Grand Slam Con in Pasadena on March 11, 2006:

So Jared and Jensen had Tom Welling come to the set and hide in the back of the Impala for a shot in which the brothers were supposed to be driving up to a bar and getting out of the car. Then, as cameras rolled, three people got out of the car instead of two. They heard someone in the crew say 'what the fu–?' and Jared said the crew almost sicced security on Tom before they realized who he was.

Either Tom was talking about a completely different incident, or he was pulling Kristin's leg. Which I can totally see him doing. :)

I like Tom's version best, because it involved him manhandling Jensen! Also like how Tom says: "they were in a big hurry because they were late getting to set – very unprofessional."

Cheeky minx! We need Jensen to tell the story next. Kripke was asked about it once:

Interviewer: "Jensen, ...he said that ...uhm...Tom Welling had made a guest appearance on the show, but just his arms were in the scene?

Eric Kripke: (laughing) It very well may have been. Those guys hang out! But I wasn’t there. I was...I was down south in Los Angeles. I didn’t recognize Tom’s arms. Jensen pays a lot more attention to Tom’s arm’s, so he would know what they look like, (laughs) but I don’t...”

LOL! That Kripke quote is awesome! I definitely like Tom's version better. He's a great storyteller, plus his is a lot more fun to imagine. :)
