Michael & John disagree on Lionel's parenting skills! [Nov. 1st, 2011|09:31 pm]

Happy Birthday to ariss_tenoh! Hope you're enjoying your travels!

christina_kat posted a video from the Smallville Boxset, a featurette about fathers & sons. The first part's a bit goofy (They needed a psychologist to explain that Jor El is a "cold" father? He lives in an ice palace! ) The Luthor half is funnier, with Glover offering his usual tongue-in-cheek defense of Lionel. Michael: "Lionel was an awful, mean Daddy. He was!"

Breaking In Update: Odette Annable gave an interview which seems to indicate Michael will be back on the show: "First of all, Michael Rosenbaum is a genius, he really has taken Dutch and made something very special. I love their relationship, but seeing more of that love triangle would be good. Melanie and Cameron might become a Jim and Pam situation -- which takes years and years to develop. She has a soft spot for Cameron even though he's like the gay best friend for now. She may develop feelings down the road."

Hee! Thanks for posting that video. Maybe one day John can play Michael's adoring, perfect, pacifist father :)

But Glover's so much more fun when he's WICKED!

It's true. He's quite unnerving when he's playing a nice guy.

Michael and John make that vid so worth watching. lol I would absolutely LOVE to see them in something together again. :)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Michael's back on Breaking In. The show needs Dutch. WE need Dutch!

We need Dutch with his SHIRT OFF!

I would love that! They were brilliant in every single SV scene together.

Ideally, someone will cast John Glover, Michael Rosenbaum, and Tom Welling to star in something together -- preferably with Michael and Tom playing lovers. *flails at the thought*

I love how JG always rationalises Lionel's behaviour and defends him and tried to make Lionel make sense even when the writing didn't. 'More love!' Heh.

The Luthor half of that vid is definitely the best part! The eulogising of Jonathan in the first half made me eyeroll and yeah, some great insight from the psychologist there!

Good to hear that it sounds like Dutch will be back and also that it might take a while for Mel and Cam to get together - I was worried that they might put them together soon, which would pretty much remove Dutch's purpose on the show at the moment (plus he'd be heartbroken!)

And way to completely ignore Martha! The writers seem determined to forget that early season Jor-El was a kidnapper and exploded an FBI agent, just for kicks.

It's hard to imagine that JG was originally only going to be in one episode. Thank goodness they changed that! He & Michael were just magic together.

I don't see much chemistry between Mel & Cam. Odette said in an interview that she & BH have known each other since they were kids and it seems like a believable friendship, but not a high voltage relationship. She has more chemistry with Dutch and Cam has more sparks with Cash I think! (Although the only BI slash-fic I've seen posted was Dutch/Cash!)

I looked but I couldn't find it. It was posted back in May, so maybe the author took it down, or marked it as private.

I hope it's true! Would like a tweet from The Sexy to be certain.

Thanks so much for posting the link! I still can't stand Jonathan and Jor-El (and I tend to blame them for a lot of what I don't like about SV's Clark Kent), but the Lex/Lionel bits of this are SO much fun to watch. (John Glover is awesome, but I tend to go with the guy saying that Lionel's love for Lex was psychotic. *pets poor Lex*)

I do hope Dutch is prominent in Breaking In when it returns; he's most of the fun for me in that show. *crosses fingers*

Yes, I think "psychotic" does not over-state it. Poor Lex :(

I'm worried that Michael isn't coming back. I think it's possible that Odette just assumed he would be returning, and doesn't know that he was never officially signed for S2. Today, when Deadline and THR reported that Megan Mullally would be joining the cast, both sites listed Michael as one of the cast, but the announcement on Breaking In's facebook (which reads like an official FOX press release) makes no mention of him at all. :(

I'll miss him as Dutch, but I'm excited and happy about all the other projects he has in the works, especially those where he has a lot of creative control.

I've asked the producer directly - tired of not knowing! I noticed Trevor Moore (Josh) has vanished from the cast. There was buzz in the spring that Fox wanted BI revamped to appeal more to women (which it already did!) which might explain Megan's hiring. I like her but wish she was playing one of the team, rather than Oz's boss, which seems a redundant role.
