Happy birthday jeannev! Super-size Tom. [Dec. 19th, 2011|07:01 pm]

Tomorrow is the lovely jeannev's birthday. We share a common interest in how huge Tom is and how HOT the hugeness of Tom is......behind the cut, a picspam on this important subject!



In "Masquerade" Clark makes a joke about Lois's miniature wedding model and "Tiny Martha." It's a fitting nickname.
Photobucket

Martha gazes upwards to offer advice to her massive son.
Photobucket

With the guest villains, directors try to minimize the size difference. At Dragoncon, James M. talked about walking around on "ramps of boxes" so that he and Tom could fit in the same shot. But this scene from Aqua was on location: no boxes for James! The director tries to make them look closer in height by sticking Tom in the background. It doesn't really work - he still looks huge - but James has such charisma that the height difference doesn't present a distraction.
Photobucket

It can be very distracting in a side-by-side shot however! The guest actor in Visitor was excellent but in some shots he's a disembodied head bobbing around Tom's waist!
Photobucket

Kevin Zegers is a fine actor and a cutie but partly due to the size-disparity, his character never seems to pose an actual threat to Clark...
Photobucket

I'd be in favour of a make-out scene though...And the smitten extra in the background seems to want to get in on the action too!
Photobucket

Speaking of making-out with Clark...taller ladies like Lois and Maxima can get up on tip-toe (and Lois once provided her own box!) But for the SV women under 5'7, Tom-kissing can pose a challenge. In Magnetic, Chloe plants a kiss on Clark - it's supposed to be spontaneous but obviously took quite a bit of choreography. Tom's legs are at a 45 degree angle and even so, his torso is so long that Allison's waist is hovering around his nipples!
Photobucket

It's easier when Tom raises the co-star up to his height!
Photobucket

Desiree had to push Clark into a sitting position to try and seduce him and even then, he's almost her height!
Photobucket

And even sitting, Tom is hunching over so he's not too tall for her!
Photobucket

Putting Clark on his back simplifies things!
Photobucket

In Memoria, he's a fallen giant surrounded by pervy elves. Even lying down, he still looks bigger than all the lab dudes put together.
Photobucket

REALLY pervy elves.
Photobucket

Michael is a strapping, broad-shouldered, six foot man. It is easy to forget this in scenes with Tom. In this scene, Lex needs to borrow Lois's box so the making out can begin!
Photobucket

Michael also has large hands but one of those hands can only make it halfway round Tom's arm.
Photobucket

So many reasons to love Nemesis, including learning that Tom's fist is about half the size of Michael's entire head.
Photobucket

Chloe, Lois and Lana all got to wear a Clark-shirt and Lex did too! Often directors try and diminish the size difference between Tom & Michael, but in Shattered, Ken Biller plays it up, with Lex looking fragile next to Clark, engulfed in Clark's big shirt.
Photobucket

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR! My birthday wish for you is Tom on screen in 2012!

And Michael's a tall boy himself! It's just the Tom-Effect of making everyone look petite.

Tom hugeness *drools*
That chest is so broad you could set up camp on it!

That kiss with Chloe had me giggling. Can we say "Awkward"? lol

Michael never looked that much smaller than Clark to me, but seeing these pics, it's surprising. Just makes the idea of them together that much hotter though. ;)

Awkward, yet you have to applaud the initiative! I'm surprised the girls (and Lex) weren't forcing Clark to kiss them every day.

It does depend on the angle of the scene - Michael has said sometimes he would get a box to stand on too! It definitely makes their hugs hotter - Lex wrapped up in Clark's big arms...

But this scene from Aqua was on location: no boxes for James!
And I think it was this ep that had the behind the scenes photo that showed Tom wearing Birkenstocks rather than Clark's big boots in order to make him a bit shorter.

Yes, you're right, I'd forgotten about the Birkenstocks!

There's a great shot in one ep of Clark and Martha hugging in the barn, and Annette is, of course, tiny.

Whenever Glover's in a scene with Tom you notice how slight Glover is, even though he's quite tall. I think only Schneidy even vaguely compares to the Welling Hulk.

He has to fold himself in two to hug Annette, it's so cute!

Yes, they could add a little width to Lionel by putting him in flowing coats but JG is very lean. JS comes much closer for breadth!

Good post, but I love the shot of Lex in Clark's shirt at the end... awwww.

In 1950s movie code, that means they've just had sex.

Clark didn't give him any old flannel either - that's probably his best shirt! Lex looks so cute in it.

I choose to believe that's also what it means on Smallville :)

I'm sorry it's been such a bad time. Wish I could send Tom over to deliver a bear hug in person. (He'd look cute with a bow round his middle.)

*birthday hugs*

Whoa! Firstly I love the picspam, but yeah, I knew Tom was a huge guy, but I never thought he dwarfed Lex until I saw the two pics that actually demonstrate it.

I just watched the commentary for Dominion and Justin (6'3) says Tom makes HIM feel small! Michael is a big strapping man but Tom makes all the other SV dudes look dainty!
