Tommy says "please" [May. 23rd, 2010|03:21 pm]
tasabian
[Tags|, ]

The sexiest courtship EVER continues! Thanks to tariel22 for the link.

Tom: "I'm doing everything I can to get Michael Rosenbaum to come back. Michael? Please? You can't have the show without Lex Luthor, and there's no Lex Luthor to me except Michael. He's the best."



Aw, Tommy!!! You know what Michael and I want to see next? A little singing. Maybe "If you leave me now" by Chicago or as elandrialore suggests, "Baby, come back" by Player. Perhaps Madonna "waiting for you....to justify my love."

I'm going to a "Lost" finale party tonight, without having watched it for the past two years. Everyone else will be rapt and my internal monologue will be: "who's THAT guy?"

I hope Tommy uses EVERYTHING at his disposal to get Michael to 'come'
He's sure been trying his hardest! Forward to the 2 minute mark:

I love the sly "Michael you know what I'm talking about" comment - clexy!!
Isn't that scorching hot, the LOOK he gives the camera?

She is quite tall, especially in heels! She also does the famous interview with the Supernatural boys that Michael "crashes":

LOL Oh Tom! He really needs to just pop up on Michael's doorstep with hockey or baseball tickets, or Chicago backing him up. Or Chewbacca or a Storm Trooper begging Michael to come back. Play on all his weaknesses. lol

Though, the comment about Clois... *giggles* Tom is priceless.

YES! Take the wooing to the next level! Michael is a big softie and will get a little teary-eyed and succumb!

Not only a Clexer, but a fem-slasher as well, the naughty boy!

Stop it, Tom! God! He's like the ex-boyfriend that you know is really bad for you but you can't help waffling about going back cause he's such a charmer.

I hope Michael has sensible friends who will tackle him and refuse to let him return to Tom's (and Smallville's) loving, if rapacious, arms without an iron-clad contract about getting a kick-ass script/s, a clear-cut escape clause in case it all goes downhill, and an unlimited, lifetime supply of Tom hugs. *nods*

YES! And since Tom rarely gives interviews, it makes it even more of a huge romantic gesture. "Look at what I'm doing for you, baby! All for you!"

Heh, poor Mikey must be flailing at the deluge of Tom-clips! If he does return, I hope he gets to keeps his hair and locks Tommy into appearing on HIS new show. (And I insist upon a Clex-kiss. C'mon, plant the Kiss of Lethe on him, baby, and make it last five minutes.)

Oh man...Thomas even made me *dream* about Michael! It was sadly a very tame dream. Probably nothing like Tom's dreams are. *G*

Heh, Tom probably dreams every night that Michael is back on set with him, ready to tease and play!

What is that on Tom's jacket? Oh, wait, it's his heart on his sleeve!

Tom, you're embarrassing yourself, dude. Show some restraint, we all know you want your secret lovah Lex Luthor back, but play it cool.

Know what I learned through all of these Tom interviews at the Upfronts? That he'd rather woo Rosenbaum than talk about producing "Hellcats". "Why are you asking me about "Hellcats"? I'm here to let Michael Rosenbaum know I want him back...I mean, Lex back."

Well I hear it's hard to get over your first love, and no matter how many honey's they throw at Tom he can't help but remember how Michael held him down and... wait wait that's not right I think someone fic'd that

I think I just had a little O at the way he said PLEASE

Just a sec.. I need a minute

But it should have happened in real life! And one way or another, Tom clearly misses his woobie very much.

He's completely precious. ♥

I know! I was certain he'd be mostly plugging Hellcats, with a few comments on SV, but his mind was running on the Rosenbaum-track. When Michael left Sv and gave all those heart-melty quotes about working with Tom, I was sad that Tom would probably be too reserved to reciprocate...how wrong I was!

... Okay, I'm a bit less enthusiastic about this one. Mostly because Tom also said in it that he'd be happy to keep the show going if the ratings improved.

Now if they brought Lex back for one wonderful last season and have everything end in a burst of glory and cool stuff, that would be great. But if they bring Lex back, and then the show gets renewed for another season... what are they going to do? Woo Michael for another year? Or ... ?

Whatever storyline they do, if they're even *thinking* about coming back for another season, is most likely going to suck for Lex.

I really would have loved the "team up to save the world" plot best, but then I love Lex so of course I'm going to go for that.

But with Tom waffling on saying it will be a final season... I don't think they're going to do a great Lex story.

Poor Michael. What a position to be in right now. :( I hope if Michael does come back, that he works out his contract very carefully with them. This could potentially be really bad, particularly with Tom doing all this publicity stuff.

I am certain that Michael will NOT return until he knows it's the end. That will be part of the deal, along with no head-shaving.

Tom seemed to be varying up his answers depending on who was interviewing him - in other interviews, he said S10 was definitely it and he had other roles, other projects he wanted to move onto.

I really would have loved the "team up to save the world" plot best, but then I love Lex so of course I'm going to go for that.
They are foreshadowing Darkseid and Lex, for all his flaws, prioritizes protecting Earth. I can't see him being on the opposite side of Clark for the final battle (although there may be some embittered-luvah drama beforehand, for sure!) I also don't want Lex to be brought back to kill off Chloe or Tess.

I just want to reiterate how much I love this man! I'm not taking what he says all that seriously, mostly I think he was just throwing stuff out there off the top of his head, but the one consistent theme of the day was that he wants Michael back. And in that I think he is entirely sincere.

I think his talk about "you never know" and the fans having the power is just his way of reminding people that if they like the show, they should watch. Or maybe Dawn yelled at him for spilling the beans at that book signing, so he decided to mess with her some more. :D His other comments, in this interview and others, made it clear to me that the plan is for S10 to be the last.

I've seen a few people theorize that Tom went in there with "talking points" but what he was actually enthusing about was stuff the other producers might not want him to say. So yeah, I think he was being sincere.

I'm very curious if he has also been calling or emailing Michael...or boys being boys, he finds it easier to woo him through the media rather than picking up the phone?

I can imagine Tom being willing to be a producer on a JL spin-off (hence S11) but surely not acting as well? Perhaps he was momentarily swayed by all the fan-love he was getting that day!

One possible way to hook MJ back for TW would be to offer him a guest role in Hellcats. And once he sweetened THAT deal poor Mikey would succumb to his charms and agree to come back as Lex. ;-)

I love how his face is changing when he talks about Michael. I loved the 'please' so much. I'm just here hoping you will write a Tom/Michael fic based on these latest vids and give us the ways Tom tries to convince Michael to come back! ;)
