BTS Tom in Combat? [Feb. 9th, 2012|10:46 pm]
[Tags|, ]

The excellent Smallville BTS Tumblr has whetted my appetite for behind the scenes shots of the guys....

Tom-friends, have you seen this pic before? Tom's hair looks S3 but judging by the outfit, it's Combat?

Thanks so much! Yes, looks like this is from combat. The clothes, the giant guy. Tom's all bloody but cute.

He's always cute, even with fake blood on him! And wow, that's a big hand.

They look like a fun gang to hang out with! I like the shaggy hair on Tom.

Thanks for this. Such a treat. And I never thought that even a wrestler would have a stunt double (or so it seems)...

Never saw that before. Thats awesome, and definitely from Combat.

Hey, these old picture finds are the only things we have of Tom now. They're like gold.

I like that Tom is bigger than the stunt guy!

The SV comic book announcement was poignant to me because, while I wish it well, what I really want to see is Tom in a new project. Michael has lots of stuff in the works but the Tom-withdrawal is hitting hard right now, hence the search for old stuff.

When I saw Ausiello had tweeted about a SV vet on Community, I got my hopes up for a moment....

I have seen this before, but at the time I assumed it was one that had been around forever, so I never even thought about posting it. I'm glad you did, you made a lot of people happy!

A few months after Smallville wrapped, I think, Tom was spotted back in Vancouver, hanging out with his former stand-in. The meandering internet search that sighting sent me on led instead to his stunt double, and this web site. It was fun to watch his demo reel and see all those familiar scenes!

Another link I never shared, because it's literally just a few seconds, is one of Entity FX's updated demo reels. It shows the beginning of the iconic shirt rip scene from the finale, and I was surprised to discover how much of that was green screen and CGI. Maybe you'd like to see it, too? Check out the 00:35 mark:


BTW, I haven't been around much, and it's been wonderful to catch up with your journal and see all the Michael news and pics, and the Tom pretties. Thank you so much for your updates! ♥ Did you geek out as much as I did when Michael's AD posted that pic of her puppy, and in the background we could see Michael listed as the director? I'm so excited that this film is happening!

Thanks for the link- very cool. Loved revisiting Clark's first "flight" in Insurgence and Lex's Silver Hot Pants Army.

It's nice Tom still hangs out with his stand-in! Michael still seems to be in touch with his too - you can see how that much time together would lead to a friendship.

Michael's AD seems a very capable, no nonsense lady with a long list of projects - perfect for a first time feature director. Wonder if James G. hooked them up? The dog photo was adorable! Hoping for more tweets from her.

Aw, thank you! I'm very eager for the Tom-drought to end. Would hate if people start to forget about him :(

Yay! It was nice to find a new Tom pic (even if it's actually old.) I miss his face.

Ooooh, a new to me BtS pic. How awesome. Thank you for posting it. I'm totally stealing it for the tumblr. I wonder who the man is on the right. He's not the episode director. It's a mystery.

Congrats on your 200 tumblr followers! I don't go on tumblr much but I check yours every day; it's what inspired me to dig around for pics this week. I like the quotes you post as well.

He also look a little "meh" to be there! I would be more excited to pose with Tom.
