Oliver Queen Picspam
Because I adore Justin Hartley, I decided to do a picspam of Smallville's Oliver Queen. You gotta love a boy who takes his shirt off as much as Ollie does, especially when he has such a magnificent chest! I still say his hair looks like he combs it with an egg beater, but somehow on him it works. :) Come on in and enjoy the pretty, and share the JH love!

ETA: Be forewarned, there are spoilers for S8 in the comments.

BONUS! A promo pic from Aquaman, and some screen caps from the Pilot:

This almost feels like a balm soothing my immense dissatisfaction over the news of Justin being in the "majority of the season" in S8. I adore Ollie, and I'm among his greatest fans in S6 but I want him only for a couple of episodes at the most this time. :(

But anyway, Justin is perfection! EEP! *flails and drools* I also LOVE how he's just so funny and down-to-earth and the way he simply adores his wife and daughter. What a man. And the hottest blonde I've ever seen on screen.

This cap is my favourite by the way. :D He looks so incredibly cute!

I totally understand your qualms about S8, but I'm determined to be optimistic. Here is my list of the ways Oliver as a regular can be a good thing:

1) Clark can have a male friend who not only knows his secret, but also understands his reasons for keeping it. They're both single now, right? How fun would it be to see them hit the town together? I'd love to see Clark do some guy stuff.
2) Ollie's "the end justifies the means" philosophy can give Clark the impetus to verbalize his decidedly different viewpoint, and maybe even help him realize an inner desire to give the world a different kind of hero.
3) Ollie can buy the Daily Planet, thereby removing Clark's objection to working there.
4) Ollie's presence in Metropolis can be one more reason for Clark to gravitate away from the farm and toward the city.
5) The writers can give all the requisite 'shippy storylines to Ollie, and let Clark focus on his destiny (yeah, I know, I'm dreaming).
6) It's always handy to have a friendly billionaire around to help make things happen.
7) Potential JLA action? Probably not, considering the budget cuts, and their stated intent to focus on Ollie's past, rather than his GA identity, but who knows?
8) We already know JH works well with everyone on the show, and he brings a lot of talent (and pretty) to the party.

Anyway, I'm going to hope for the best. :) Working on this picspam has reminded me how much I enjoyed JH on the show. I truly am excited about the possibilities for S8.

I'm glad you enjoyed the pics! He is totally adorable in that cap!

He's so pretty! And I love his egg-beatered hair too - it looks so cute on him! ♥

I'm one of those people who's excited he's going to be back for S8. Like you, I just adore Justin and think he brings a great dynamic to the show. I just hope the writers learned from the last time he was around and don't make Clark look lazy or dumb by comparison.

I'm hoping that the fact that this is the last season will mean no more stalling for Clark, so no reason to make Ollie the focus of the show rather than him. I'm really curious about what they'll come up with for all the characters in S8, but I'm also seriously thinking about trying to go spoiler free from now on. Yeah, we'll see how long that lasts. :)

Wheeee! What a nice way to start the morning.
I have such a soft spot for JH, and he was probably the only person who could have tempted me to watch another episode of SV, since I've pretty much given up on everyone else. :-( But JH brings such a fun, easy charm to his character, and he makes GA a Superhero that I genuinely can like.
And, er, he does tend to take his shirt off a lot, but, ummmm, that doesn't influence me at all. *shuffles*

I was secretly thrilled when JH's pilot didn't get picked up, because I wanted him to be available to come back to Smallville. I have high hopes for S8!

I tend to waver in my love of JH and Oliver. Some weeks I just love the character and other weeks I don't. But JH is a very attractive man, as your lovely picspam did show.

I'm very curious to see how many shirtless scenes JH will have in S8. I can't say that thought displeases me :D.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 15th, 2008 05:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have to admit my love for JH influences how much I like Oliver. The same is true of Aaron Ashmore, whom I also adore, and Jimmy.

JH has certainly always been good natured about walking around half naked. :) My sister tells me this is because he used to be on Passions, a soap where men rarely wore shirts.

Thank you for this! He's so pretty. So, so pretty. And I love his hair! Ordered chaos.

I'm so happy you liked it! I just wanted to celebrate JH's return to the show. I'm excited he's coming back!

OK, Justin and Jensen can never be on screen together because . . . well, too many people would pass out from the Guh.

And you included footporn! *thud*

(PS I haven't deleted those MR pics from my e-mail yet. I still look at and drool over them. Thank you!)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 15th, 2008 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
He is beyond pretty, isn't he? He's also super funny in interviews, and just seems like a sweetheart in all things. Check out this pic of him with his daughter that acampbell sent me:

How could you not love him? :)

I'm really glad you liked the MR picspam! I had a ton of fun putting it together, and it reminded me how much I love MR myself. I think it's so cute that he's slowly loosening up and showing more of his unique personality in public since he left the show. The other day he didn't bother to hide his pack of cigarettes, and fangirls took note! :) Although, of course, I'm one of those who wishes he, and Jensen, didn't smoke.

Wow, if ANYTHING could make an Ollie fan outta me, it would be this splendid array of pix. I'm wondering if maybe with Lex gone in S8, I'll wind up warming up to him. As long as he doesn't start pimping Lana again a la "Reunion," I'll certainly give him a shot.

Shot. Heh.

Great work!

Thanks! As you well know, I couldn't have done it without you! :)

And I was just writing you an email to thank you for the e-card! I've never received one before, that was wonderful! Thanks so much for thinking of me, it helps a lot, truly. I'm melancholy today, but I'm okay.

*dies in the hotness*

OLLIE! I LOVE OLLIE! I adored Oliver from the start, partially it is shallowness cuz I thought he was super hot when I saw him in Sneeze. The white suit? Sexy! ;) Then I saw Justin's interviews and whatnot and he seems to be such a sweetheart in RL that my love for Ollie increased tenfold.

But this is such a great picspam! Wow ... I love how he has no objections to taking off his shirt. That and Lois/Oliver was one of the best romantic relationships SV has ever written. I mean, the ED-JH chemistry? GAH! :D

I'm so excited he'll be back in s8. He's a great actor, a wonderful character and Clark could use a male friend.

Sorry to ramble. I get all excited when I see lots of Ollie!

Thanks for this!

Re: here via the sv_ledger

I had the same experience with JH. I liked Oliver right away, but it was interviews that made me a huge fan of JH. I'd watch him in anything now. He is such a great guy, and so professional. He never has a bad word to say about anyone, and he's so humble, too. Plus, as you say, HOT.

I'm looking forward to his return to Smallville, too! And ramble all you want to, I'm just glad it was good for you, too! :D

I'm taking that as a compliment. :) I'm glad you liked it! Smallville has always known how to bring the pretty.

Wow! I don't really go for blondes but I would definitely make an exception in this case. Pic #3, the shot from behind is just *guh*. I mean he looks great without clothes but he also looks great in them.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 16th, 2008 02:42 am (UTC) (Link)
For me it's his charm in combination with his looks that really gets me. At the same time, though, I am such a Tommy girl, first, last, and always. Every time I scroll through this post to get to the new comments, I stop at that one pic I put in of Oliver and Clark together, and just stare at Clark. Again, some more. :) God, he's beautiful.

MMMMM! Yummy picspam. You never fail to amaze and inspire drool with these picspams!

I personally love his hair and the way it's always standing at attention, lol! And that picture with his feet up on the table! Everytime I watch that episode, my eyes are drawn instantly to those feet!

And I've never seen those Aquaman photos before! He looks the part!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 16th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm really happy you liked it, Robyn! I had you in mind the whole time I was putting it together.

I love his hair, too, I just giggle every time I imagine what he must do to get it to look like that. :)

If there's one thing Smallville always does well, it's knowing how to bring the pretty! :)

If I were you, I'd never use any icon but that one. You put your hand on the Rosenchest!
