Lionel touches Lex

Yay for internet today! The server for my corner of the world has been acting up lately...

I recently re-watched the DragonCon clip where Michael explains how John Glover taught him to unexpectedly touch other actors:

Michael: "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...."

John's unscripted touches and Michael's reactions added so much to the Lex/Lionel dynamic. A little retrospective picspam behind the cut.
