Happy Birthday carolandtom - I hope it is WONDERFUL!!!

Michael has been talking about Tom guest-starring on Impastor! Firstly here:

TVLINE: Speaking of guest stars, people do love their little “mini-reunions.” Who from Smallville would Smallvilel_Lex-Clarkyou like to see bring their comedy chops to Impastor?
Michael: That’s a really good question…. I mean, Tom [Welling] and I are still buddies – I’m a Jew but I had a Christmas tree decorating party last year and he made an ornament and brought it over. So, Tom’s got a really fun, really dry sense of humor…. It’d be a blast if there was something for him.
TVLINE: Like, maybe he’s the onetime BMOC from Ladner College or something….
Michael: Yeah! Or he could be a criminal in town. Tom would be a blast. I also think Annette O’Toole (who played Martha) is really funny, she could be hilarious. And Allison Mack (Chloe)…. Any of those guys, we’d be lucky to have them.


Michael was doing a periscope Q & A recently and a fan asked about Tom on Impastor:

Michael: “Who knows? We don’t like to bring in people just because they’re recognizable, that’s kinda distracting at times. None of us are really big names so I think that was kinda appealing in a way? I think that’s what makes the show kinda special.

But you know…I’d like to have Tom on. I think that’s be kinda funny. You know, I wouldn’t even tell you he was on, I’d put this big wig on him - “Big Wig Welling”, I’d call him. He’d have really long hair and be blond and I’d put some really weird glasses on him and he’s like this hippie who lives in town and you wouldn’t even know (pause)…You’d know, because no matter what he wears, he’s good looking. He could have, like, diarrhea all over his head and people would be like, “Oh my god, that guy is so handsome!”

YES PLEASE TO TOM ON IMPASTOR, getting to be funny and maybe a little wicked. (But NO weird stuff on his beautiful head please.) Just move that mannequin and insert Tom, yes.

Too long to wait until S2! You know, although the growing fanbase helped, I think the positive reviews tipped the balance to renewal. TV land hasn't had much in the way of critically acclaimed hits so the show being praised made all the difference, and thank goodness!

Is it wrong to hope for Tom on Impastor in drag? He could totally be a hot woman (although a little butch perhaps)!

Forced to pose as Buddy's enormous sister? I can see it.

Mostly I just want them to kiss.

It really must've. I've heard nothing but good reviews for it.

There were some offended people who wrote reviews without seeing it "This isn't Lutheran!" But people who watched saw it wasn't anti-Christian at all.

Such a great cast; no weak links there. And a plum role for Our Boy.

Thank you so much for the Birthday wishes and for everything!!! I really enjoyed your post.

Yes to having Tom on that show! I haven't been able to watch it yet but I'm sure it's great.

I'm so glad those two are still good friends!

I've enjoyed it a lot! Tom is great at comedy so it would be fun to see him come on and play a fun role. It films in Vancouver so would be a bit of a homecoming for him.

I'm so glad those two are still good friends!
Yes, I love that!
