Happy birthday, sexyclex! Jane Seymour on Michael [Dec. 6th, 2009|09:12 pm]

Jane Seymour talked about Michael in an interview this week! (Posted by Orestes at TWoP)

WCT: My roommate from college, Michael Rosenbaum, was on seven seasons of the WB's Smallville playing Lex Luthor. You did some guest appearances on that show.

JANE SEYMOUR: He became my buddy. I never got to meet Superman. I did all my scenes with Michael. He is quite a character and a very good actor.

WCT: Yes he is.

Link I guess they did become buddies if they hung out on the beach together!

Happy birthday, sexyclex! Hope it's been a great day.

Yes, but did she get to meet Tom? ;)

I think she's a little regretful about that! Considering how flirty Genevieve was with Lex, Lionel (and her own son!) it's a waste we didn't get to see her circling a wide-eyed Clark.

Has there been anyone who worked closely with Michael on SV that didn't become close friends with him? lol

The comment about not meeting Superman made me chuckle and think of the movie "Somewhere in Time" that she was in with Christopher Reeve. So... she did meet one Superman, even if she never met Tom. :)

He steals the hearts of everyone!

Hey, that's right! Christopher & Jane were so incredibly gorgeous in that movie.

ETA: because I can't do italics tonight!

You KNOW Michael captivates everyone he meets. :) And Jane seems to be a fun person, with a good sense of humor. I can see why Michael would like her as well.

I've been watch ZDJJ for the first time this weekend (I've only seen clips before), and Michael's sexual energy and charisma just jump off the screen! And he is so funny. I wonder if he'll do another pilot this year?

When I read that interview, I was shocked to find out that Jane never met Tom. Even though they didn't share any scenes, I assumed Tom was around enough that they would have crossed paths, especially since she knew Christopher Reeve so well. I just figured she would have made it a point to meet him. But it's all about the scheduling, I guess. I don't think BAG met anyone but Tom and Erica (of the regulars) when he was on the show.

Yes, it's a shame she doesn't have a Tom-story & they never shared a scene. I would have loved to see Genevieve size up Clark!

NBC still owns the option on the script Michael wrote...and with comedies making a comeback this year, maybe there's a chance it will get a pilot?

Jensen was talking about Michael's Jane-crush at a SPN convention - it sounded like Jensen was a little smitten too!

Was that script intended as a vehicle for Michael as an actor, or was it purely a writing project? I would love more than anything to see Michael star in something he himself created, but NBC makes me very nervous right now.

I always wished the show could have taken those scenes between Jason and his mother just a little bit further. The hint of it was already there, and the obvious chemistry between the actors could have given us so much more, while still staying within the boundaries of acceptable broadcast behavior, and going completely over the heads of the younger viewers. At the very least it could have made Jason's sudden transformation into a psychopath a bit more plausible.

I think his involvement was going to be along the lines of Chris Rock in "Everyone hates Chris"...but I guess once the project is sold, NBC gets free reign, which is worrisome.

Yes, it was creepy but there was the potential for more. If we'd seen the transition between Jason being the Perfect Boyfriend and coach and then being thoroughly under his mother's dominance, it would have made him into a time bomb character. As it was, Jason's ending just seemed rushed & confusing. (Jensen was super-pretty though!)

Awwwww, that's so cool! Him and Jane Seymor, buddies!

The photo you posted is probably my favorite of those two together---I just love how they are aiming full-on smiles at each other, grasping each other's arms, and Michael's hand on Tom's chest.......whew!

Happy Birthday sexyclex!

Nothing beats a Tom/Michael cuddle!

So glad Ore found the quote from Jane - I always wanted to know what she thought about working with Michael!
