Michael, Tom, SV spoilers [Jul. 29th, 2009|07:02 pm]

As previously mentioned, Michael will be making occasional guest appearances on a Canadian comedy show geared at tweens: "That's so Weird". Apparently the show will feature parodies of Smallville! (Please tell me Michael puts on a wig and plays Lana.) Link

This Tweet hints that Michael may be considering having his dog Irv's portrait painted. Excellent idea!




On the possibility of Michael returning to Smallville, producer Kelly Souders notes:
"You know, we love Rosenbaum. We had dinner with him a couple of weeks ago. We would be over the moon to have time work out for his schedule, have him back and visit the show and nothing, I think, would make the cast happier, too. But right now, there’s nothing that’s panning out, but we’re always looking at it."

Especially one particular cast member, maybe? The Big Guy misses his Mikey?


This spoiler annoys me. Souders describes Zod:
"Smallville is really interested in the origin stories of characters, so to explore why he's going to become a villain, nurture vs. nature and all of those aspects... it's a lot of fun to watch."
So...yes indeed, the Doomsday arc all over again? Zod angsts, takes showers, and finally gets around to rampaging in episode 20 (rampage occurring almost entirely offscreen.) Will Zod even get his own set or will he take over Lex's library?

Callum Blue at least seems to understand what the fans want from Zod:

Q: Could Zod have a good side?
"I don't want him to. If he pretends to have a good side, there's a reason. He's definitely a manipulator."

He knows what he wants to do.
"He knows what he wants to do. He wants everybody to kneel before him."

Clear enough! And yet I somehow foresee him getting pulled into love triangles, weeping, and telling Clark "It's your fault I'm like this! YOU destroyed Krypton!"

Honestly, I have exactly the same reservations about Zod as you do. I'm not sure they have it in them to not woobify Zod on some level, and not blame Clark for him. Though I suspect Jor-El is going to get the blame for this one, with Clark having to pay the bill.

It's a pity because Callum Blue seems like spot-on casting & I fear he will be wasted, that we'll get lots of office scenes where Zod and Tess bicker. Zod doesn't bicker!

They just don't have the money for action sequences and I think that's the show's biggest liability right now.

I'm also worried that with CF, JH and CB all signed for 16-17 episodes, Tom's screen time will be further cut. That's probably fine by him - but not by me!

That'd be awesome if Michael wants to get a portrait of his pup done. :) My aunt painted me a small picture of one of our cats we used to have.

Awww!! Seems like the cast misses Micheal too. :)

If Michael plays Lana is a sketch on that show... I will most definitely have to find it! lol

Maybe the next time Michael films a short movie at his house, there will be a big portrait of Irv on the wall!

The set can't be the same without him!

It looks like there will be online clips some time after September 9!

That Zod storyline sounds ridiculous!

The TV show sounds like it is right up Michael's alley! Will it air in the U.S.?

Parodies of Smallville with Michael starring......OMG. A dream come true! How I'd LOVE to see that!!!

Not sure if it will air outside Canada but there should be clips online.

It doesn't specify that he's in the SV parodies - that might be just a coincidence. Would be cool though!

Oh please let this happen!!!

Aww! He must mean Tom there, surely. I choose to believe it!

Hmm, I think I might have seen that Zod plot somewhere before. I don't think they can afford a new set, so Zod will probably find himself living in the mansion and spending a lot of time at the DP for some contrived reason. Although I'm hoping that he'll put on an apron and work at the Talon (do they even still have that set?). Zod would make a fabulous muffin-peddler!

I think so! Michael didn't work with AM, ED or JH very often so it must be Tom!

Actually, Zod plotting world domination while baking muffins would be genius! But I expect he'll spend most of his time lurking around other people's sets.

I know....I really think spending some decent cash on a movie finale would be a better idea.

Wow that's great news about Michael and the CDN tv show. The new show is written by folks who did This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Kids in the Hall and Corner Gas and these Canadian shows are really really funny. If you like satire then this should be really good. Can't wait!
