Just picked up a new book "Superman: the history of a high flying hero." The Smallville portion is brief but Our Boys get a shout-out!
"Lex is the most ambiguous character on any primetime series," Tom Carson wrote in Esquire. "You don't even know if he's lovelorn young Clark's rival for the affections of Lana Lang....or her rival for his." That last element - whether Lex's longing gazes at Clark meant he was gay - was fodder for fans and pundits. "I love it," Rosenbaum said. "In fact, if there's a line where I look at Clark and say "if you need me, I'm there," we laugh our asses off. It takes us ten takes to get it out. Let the audience think what they want to think."
Tomorrow, Michael & his diverse group of boyfriends (including Old Spice guy and Napoleon Dynamite) are off to ride the Lex Luthor rollercoaster!
