Wishing a good Remembrance Day and Veteran's Day to all my friends.

Tom emerges from his hermitage and throws Michael (and others!) some love! Thanks to airygold for the link:

Aww, love the Michael-love!

I don't know why this makes me giggle...
A fan favourite in every way, of course
Oh yeah. Every way.

A fan-favourite and a Tom-favourite (in every way)!

That photo Michael posted of Irv is adorable!

It is a very cute photo! Irv looks very thoughtful and expectant, as if wondering where his birthday hug is.

Hard to believe it's 3 years already!

He does! "Stop messing around with that camera & cuddle me!"

That was really sweet. :) He also said the most about Michael - and John too, but was really the gushiest about Michael. He really did enjoy working with him a lot. Sounds like he still misses him.

They need to work together again! At conventions, Michael always talks a lot about Tom too. Fond of all his cast-mates but always talks most about Tom & Glover.

I love how Tom never offers up trite little sound bites in interviews, but instead shares sincere, thoughtful insights that are often unexpected. I'm always fascinated by what he has to say.

Tom's respect and admiration for Michael (and everyone he mentions) really shines through. I hope the two of them get the chance to work together again someday.

Tom always gives great, thoughtful interviews, which is why it's annoying he doesn't do DVD commentaries any more. *pokes him* Would love to hear him give a play-by-play on SV again. In my dreams, the boxset would have included the pilot episode with cast commentary, all of them looking back 10 years...

Apart from loving the Michael-quote, I also liked what he said about Annette & John helping him navigate the sudden media attention. Tom was very smart in using his SV experience as a way of acquiring new skills: from blocking scenes to directing to running a production company.

I hope this interview is a sign he's getting ready to announce a new project!

Exactly! The Big Guy didn't do much of the SV audio commentaries ( and I hope he did at least one for the last season box set), I think, for exactly that reason. The one audio he did with MR he obviously let Michael do most of the talking.

Of the video interviews with him online that I've seen, I'd say that Mr. Welling really doesn't like to do the on-the-spot interviews thing. He seems uncomfortable in a number of the early vids. His Fallon appearance showed he improved on that one a bit.

And yeah, he was learning the acting craft along the way and was fortunate to have Glover, Reeve and others to help teach him.

Hopefully Michael will read it and get a smile on his face!

I think The Big Guy is in hiding. Somebody better lure him out before he becomes a recluse....

I agree about the dvd extras - they were what made the early season sets so enjoyable. That cast were so cute in the commentaries & blooper reels!

I ladore the Michael love coming from Tom. There are times like this when I wish the SV RPF was more active these days even though the shows over. Tom/Michael were the orignal slash rps pairing.
Hopefully they will work together again some day. Such amazing chemistry!
