Tom & Michael....plus one. [Jul. 21st, 2008|06:26 pm]

Season 4 of Smallville presented an odd combination: the plot was muddled, which was bad.... but Tom and Michael have never been as frequently shirtless. This was good.

And behold, a third boy was added to the mix. He didn't make the plot any more coherent - but he did add a big dose of Pretty and became good friends with both Tom and Michael....




Jensen and Tom share a Theory on Acting! Jensen: "Tom Welling and I were playing golf this past summer, and we were talking about why we like playing golf and why we like acting. We came up with the fact that, whenever someone yells, “Action!,” it’s the same thing as taking a back swing, in that, at that moment in time, you have a chance to be great. You think, “This could be really cool. This could be really good.”

Jensen and Michael are the same height and weight and shared a stunt man! Somehow, I find this fact extremely HOT!


Jensen happily joined in the Michael/Tom prank wars: "We play jokes on each other. Michael decided to do a take on his coverage that was extremely flamboyant gay man but he didn't catch me off guard. I went ahead and played it straight back at him. I talked to Al and he said that homosexual take will make it to the blooper reel" (Al's a rotten liar! No sign of this footage on the S4 dvds, alas.)

*flirt*



Michael's body double Morris remembers the "Forever" shoot as fun. "Had a great week working on the cliffs with Jensen and Michael" And he snapped a sexy photo of the boys in an off-camera moment!


The jokes kept going even after Jensen had left Smallville. Tom explains: "Supernatural and Smallville actually shoot a block away from each other, and I'm really good friends with Jensen and Jared. Last season, at one point, I actually got off a little bit earlier than they did, and I went down to their set. They weren't there yet, and I knew some of the people on set, because they had worked on Smallville, so I jumped in the backseat of their car, and if you've seen the show, you know they're always driving their car and they're pullin' in to places and getting out of their car. So, I get in the backseat, and they were in a big hurry because they were late getting to set – very unprofessional – and they jumped in the car very quickly 'cause the crew was yelling 'We're already rolling, go, go, go.' And just as they jumped in, I reached over, and I grabbed Jensen, and I pulled him into the backseat, and he didn't know what was going on. He thought it was his stunt double, so he started hittin' me, so I started hittin' him back. And then when he realized who was who, they said 'Action,' so he jumps in the front seat, we tear down this alley, he pulls into this bar and all three of us jumped out, and we all walked into this bar, and as we walked in, the door closed and we heard 'Um ... cut?' They didn't know what was goin' on. So, I made an appearance on Supernatural. I believe I was edited out." Dumb shows! Why do you keep editing out the good stuff, like boys wrestling in the back-seat? *consoles self with shirtless Tom being stroked by Jensen*



Supernatural creator Eric Kripke was asked about Tom's practical joke:
Interviewer: "Jensen, ...he said that ...uhm...Tom Welling had made a guest appearance on the show, but just his arms were in the scene?

Eric Kripke: (laughing) It very well may have been. Those guys hang out! But I wasn’t there. I was...I was down south in Los Angeles. I didn’t recognize Tom’s arms. Jensen pays a lot more attention to Tom’s arm’s, so he would know what they look like, (laughs) but I don’t...”
(Maybe that's because Jensen remembers being held in those big, strong arms!)



In the summer of 2005, Michael and Jensen went to a charity event in Puerto Rico with a group of celebrities so random, they might as well have been drawn out of a hat! Tara Lipinski....Jane Seymour....Matt Dillon.....Kelsey Grammar....one of the Kennedys. The result was some great pictures!
Wet boys:

Dry boys:

Boys on a plane!

Rosenbaum touching himself...(no, Jensen's not in this pic but it's ROSENBAUM TOUCHING HIMSELF!)


Jensen has maintained his friendship with Tom too, with frequent trips to the golf course: "We don't have a lot of leisure time, but I do play golf with Tom and see Michael Rosenbaum every now and then." He often mentions Tom in interviews; in an Australian interview this spring, he demonstrated his "Tom-face"! ('cap by stir_of_echoes):


At the 2006 CW launch party, Tom did an intro with the Supernatural boys. Jensen teasingly called him "Tommy Tights!"




Michael, surrounded by his lovely co-stars, is keeping an intent eye on Tom's end of the stage. Feeling a little left out, perhaps?


No! No jealousy here. Michael: "Jared and Jensen are great guys. Real nice southern guys. I knew Jensen before he came and played in "Smallville". We do go out together sometimes, namely to a place called Gotham in Vancouver, if you can believe it! But I don't see them a lot because of work. Actually the more I see them, it's at the gym. These guys exercise way too much! I'll be there and I'll say 'hey long time no see' and they will be going: 'hey you don't come around to the gym enough'. When Jensen got the part in Supernatural we were all really happy for him but I warned him that the holiday was over 'cause on Smallville he wasn't there much. And I know Tom talked to him and offered his congratulations and condolences. He told him he had no idea what he was getting into since the show only has two leads, him and Jared. But they're doing great and we're happy for them." ("We're happy for them" = AWWWW!)
And by the summer of 2005, the Michael and Tom were on their own again - and Jensen had a brand new partner-in-crime! (And I continue to hope for a photo of all four of them, engaged in a group-cuddle!)

Oh, this post is beyond awesome!! All four of my boys!! *swoons* I absolutely love the idea of the four of them hanging out. Thank you for all the wonderful pics and stories. This is another one for my Memories.

I, too, would die for a group cuddle. All I have to offer is this manip (Dawn Ostroff has been removed). I don't remember where I got it, and I never knew who made it. If anyone out there does, please tell me so I can give proper credit!

Ooh, the Dawn-free version is very nice! *squishes Tom and Michael together* I hadn't noticed before that Tom & Michael are wearing matching outfits. Love the casual drape of Michael's arm around Jensen and the way Tom is not the tallest guy in the room, for once!

I absolutely love the idea of the four of them hanging out.
Where is this mythical golf course where they can play together and not be seen? I ache to know!

The 'cap is from this video - at the 2.25 minute mark. It's quite a good impression!

May they always be flirty and shirtless, preferably at the same time!

I love this post!!!!!!!!!!! I love hearing backstage stories!!!!!!

Although you should know Jensen and I have a love/hate relationship. I think he is a good actor. I think he is cute. For some reason that I STILL cannot explain, he annoys me. Plus he is my own personal tv stalker. I watched Jensen on Days of Our Lives. I watched him on Dawson's Creek. I watched him on SV (obviously!) He is TV STALKING ME!!!!!!! Hee!

This post is MADE OF WIN! ♥ I love any story that has any of these four boys hanging out together ... they just seem like such good buds! :D

I love all the pictures, and the pictures from the Puerto Rico charity event are my favourites. The boys look so deliciously handsome!

Even when they're making silly faces and wearing scruffy t-shirts, they look incredible!

The boys are so adorable together. I have heard from various sources that Tom is particularly close to the SPN boys, but moreso Jensen. I imagine Michael is more the social butterfly who spices up the little group when he's in town. :) I'd give up a kidney for more pictures of the boys hanging out. Remember last year, there was that item from a Vancouver paper about Tom, Jared and Jensen out having dinner together at a new steak place? How come no one had a camera phone? ARGH!

There's never been an off-set photo of Tom and Jensen together, has there? We need one! (And also more Tom/Michael, of course! Always more Tom/Michael....)

My theory is that Tom has cleverly mapped a network of Vancouver hidey-holes where he knows he's safe from cameras (corner booths in discreet restaurants! golf courses filled with old people!) and takes his friends there.
