I worship at the television altar
Did you catch all of Tom Welling's recent interviews and appearances?
The usually reclusive Tom Welling did a surprising number of interviews and appearances to promote the Smallville series finale, and in this post I've attempted to make a comprehensive list of them all. I did it for the Tom fans on my flist, just in case anyone missed something along the way, and for myself, to have a little slice of Tom heaven I can revisit in the months ahead, especially if he disappears for awhile like I think he might.

These are in roughly chronological order.

1) Tom interview with Jay Bobbin for Zap2it - Part 1

2) Cast interview with Matt Mitovich for TV Line - Part 1

3) Tom interview with Rich Sands for TV Guide Magazine

4) Tom and Jamie radio interview with Robert Dover for Dover's World
Download an .mp3 file of the interview by clicking on Dover's World Archived Shows and looking for the file labeled "Show aired on 04-26-11 2nd hour". Right click and save. The interview starts at the 13:00 mark.

5) Tom interview with Jay Bobbin for Zap2it - Part 2

6) Tom interview with Geoff Boucher for the Los Angeles Times

And that's my list. So much Tommy goodness! If I've forgotten or overlooked anything, please let me know in the comments. I hope Tom will be in the news again very soon, but if not, at least he gave us lots to enjoy before taking a well-deserved break. Thank you, Tom!

You are amazing for compiling all of these in one post. Thank you so much.
He was simply incredible in every single appearance in the this final stretch of the show. He truly couldn't be more charming. If he was any more charming I think he would literally turn into a Disney Prince. He's incredible.

What was up with Regis on R&K though? Was I the only one who felt like Tom was being so friendly and sweet and Regis kind of was...snubbing him? It was odd. Certainly not Tom's fault. He was wonderful. But Regis could have done better with that interview.

He truly couldn't be more charming.

I completely agree. He is such a gentleman, and at the same time he's so entertaining. And he moved from one venue to another with ease, equally at home in each.

I don't watch R&K much, but I didn't get that impression from Regis. I just think he was trying to be funny, and that he was more focused on what he was going to say next than actually listening to Tom. But yes, he could have done better. His questions had me rolling my eyes.

I love you so much right now. <3<3<3

Thanks for putting all of these together. It gives us something to hold onto until our darling Tom surfaces again.

I found myself going back to a lot of these to see them again, and every time I was hunting here and there for the right link. I had to put them all in one place!

My favorite is Tom's appearance on Jimmy Fallon, and I have a feeling it's going to see a lot of play on my computer in the months ahead. I do hope Tom has a chance to truly relax, but I'm counting on his healthy work ethic to get him back in the game before too much time has passed. ;)

Once thing we've defintely learned about Tom lately...he likes to be doing something. So, like you, I'm hoping that means he'll be back to work soon.

DUDE!! First of all, wtf is up with LJ throwing only your notifications in my spam folder?

Second!! omg, ilu. I am totally saving this batch of Tommie goodies in my memories for ever and ever. Did I mention you were awesome?! ♥
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 20th, 2011 06:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
My posts are spam? Well, I'm sure those on my flist who aren't obsessed with Tom think so. :)

I'm very much afraid this will be the last of the Tommy news for a long, long time. I hope I'm wrong.

Damn!! I can always count on you to bring forth all the Tommy goodness for a time-deprived gal like me. I've caught all the major interviews but I have to OWN them on my harddrive. So thank you kindly . What did you think of the 5 year old Tom with a tooth missing? Could he have been any cuter?? He'll, no, he couldn't have!!!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 20th, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
What I loved about those pics of Tom as a child was that he was wearing Superman colors in both of them. Obviously he was born to play this role!

Thank you so much for this GREAT service.

The best about these recent interviews, in particular the talk show and radio interviews, is that Tom really opened up his fortress of seclusion and let us in on quite a bit of his real self; to a degree that we never were able to see before. Jamie, his parents, childhood pics: I never thought he´d ever share any of this. Besides, I never saw him this relaxed and happy. He was nice and funny before, but there was always a hint of reservation. And now this! What a treat! *sigh*

Can he please present the next Oscars?
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 20th, 2011 07:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
This really was a whole new Tom we saw in these recent interviews, and I was as surprised as you were to see him share so much of his personal life. I don't know if it was a conscious effort on his part to be more accessible (even his co-stars talk about how private he is), or simply a reflection of the freedom he feels to be himself now that Smallville is over, but whatever the reason, I loved it.

My favorite was his appearance on Jimmy Fallon. He looked amazing, and he seemed perfectly at ease. I loved the way he made Jimmy laugh. His self-deprecating humor when he told the story of his surprise party was too funny, and so very charming.

You So Rock for compiling all of this because, yeah. I pretty much missed it all.

Yay! I'm so glad my list was useful to you!

Thanks, Brianne! *hugs*

I miss you, too! I do catch your tweets sometimes, but I never seem to be online at the same time you are.

It's my pleasure! I liked that the focus was on Tom, just as it should be, as the show drew to a close. Of course I would have loved to see him do even more to promote the finale, but I'm thankful for everything he gave us, on and off the screen.

He's so lovely! Thanks for putting these all together.

I will never get tired of watching Tom giggle at Michael ♥

I will never get tired of watching Tom giggle at Michael ♥

Nor will I. The BTS clips of their scene together are a delight, and make me mourn all the more for the Smallville gag reels we'll never see.

Aren't you great compiling all of these for us! Thank you!

Now, please, can you bring him back?? I miss him terribly! Where is he???
acampbell From: acampbell Date: May 25th, 2011 01:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wow, you're the best! I missed almost all of these, so it's great to have 'em consolidated here.

While I'm at it, I would like to thank you sincerely & profusely for everything you've done for all of us. You've been so kind, generous and a great provider of information. I hope we can stay in touch even though the show is over, now.

Thanks again, and *hugs*

I can't believe you put all of Tom's recent appearances, interviews all together in one post for us!! This is so fantastic and I think I will be back here daily for my complete Tom fix. Missing him already so much, especially after being so spoiled by him with all the Smallville promotion and how wonderful it was that he gave us a glimpse into his personal life. ♥ Thank you so much!!
