Happy birthday to pep_singer! See inside for Tom-treat!
A certain cure for my bad moods is Clex. Most especially Michael talking about Clex, which he has been doing a LOT lately....here are some wonderfully slashy and stimulating quotes from DragonCon!
A fan requests Michael say "Kneel before Zod."
"That line....I mean, I couldn't do it because...imagine me, standing there in this giant leather - I want to say something but I'm not going to - and it was 20 pounds and it was, like, purple and I was all "Omigod, where is my career going? KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!" You know that line, it was hard not to...when Tom got on his knees and I had to goof around. "KNEEL BEFORE ZOD and" (whispers) "suck it!" I had to say that on camera! 'Cause we're joking around, two guys fooling around.....(crowd laughs) Not like that! Well, when you're comfortable with your sexuality, you can say whatever the hell you want! You know? It's just cool."
Asked about Clex
Michael: "Sometimes Tom and I would laugh...I've said this story before, but Tom and I would be in a scene, we'd look at each other, and I would just say....we'd get real close and it was intense and "get out of here!" and I'd say "Let's forget about the lies. Let's forget about everything. Let's live in the moment. (Michael starts singing) "Here and now, I promise to love you.....Keep it real, Clark. Keep it real. He liked that."
On favourite co-stars (Notice how the topic meanders back to Clex!)
Michael: I mean, I loved them all but Glover, John Glover, played my father...you know what's great about John? He deserves...I just saw him in a play, off-Broadway. He was amazing. The great thing about John is he taught me how to touch people, or be touched, and feel comfortable with it. What I'm trying to say is in a scene....I remember the first scene, John would just go...(Michael reaches over and strokes his friend Chris's head) and at first I was, like "what the hell are you doing, John?"(As JG) "I'm touching my son." Oh, okay that's kinda weird. (as JG) "Just live in the moment, Michael..." I'm trying, John! I'm trying. But by the end of the show, it's like (strokes Chris again) "Oh, Clark...."
Asked by a Fan about SV's most touching moment:
Michael: "That's a good question...that's good. You know the last one was very hard for me, because it was the last episode, the last moment and it's the last time....and I looked at Clark and I added that line, my very last line of the show for Lex, for Lex in the series, when he looks down and says "I loved you like a brother" and that wasn't written. "I love you like a brother...."
"So that was actually hard because Tom and I actually became like brothers over seven years, working together, laughing together, yelling together, everything. And so, for me, it was a touching moment as a character and it was the last time I was going to be Lex....so I look at him, you know, "I love you like a brother" and actually, there was tears in my eyes...it was a sad ending to the whole show and a big chapter in my life."
Happy birthday to the lovely & talented pep_singer! *offers smiley Tom*
