Naughty Glover and Baseball Mikey [Dec. 7th, 2008|01:36 pm]

Happy belated birthday to ange_elphe!

An IMDB poster talks about taking a theatre course with John Glover:
I'm a senior acting student at Towson University, and John comes back every year to teach classes and hang out. Every time he comes he has this group of students and he takes them all out to dinner and to have drinks.

He also gives a very large scholarship to one student a year. I got that scholarship this year!!!!

John and I go way back...

Once, I was doing this monologue and had to be...sexy...or something...and he told me to go to the bathroom and take off my underwear and try the monologue that way....

FREAKIN' GENIUS THAT MAN!!!

Dare we hope that Michael or Tom might have received this same acting tip? Because.....HOT!

What's Michael been doing? On November 21, he and his brother Eric attended "Under the Lights with the Dodgers", an event where fans can go to Dodgers stadium and meet the players and swing a bat themselves. One Dodgers' fan shares her encounter with him:

Nelly writes:
While standing in line to get food, I am looking at this guy say to myself "I know him from somewhere." Sure enough it's Michael Rosenbaum who played Lex Luther on Smallville. He asked how we were doing, and he was just enjoying all the festivities just like we were. We ran into him all night long, including leaving the parking lot. I will tell that story in a little bit because it was LOL funny.

She continues:
We were running into Michael Rosenbaum the entire night. Well, as we are leaving the stadium, he and his brother are getting into their car as well. So, we follow them out the gate, thinking they knew where they were going - not the case. So, we spent about 5-10 minutes following their car trying to find a way out of the parking lot.

Other posters want more details. Nelly adds:
As far as Michael Rosenbaum. He was the only reason I watched Smallville. I was so intrigued by the character and how he became the bad guy. I was standing between him and his brother when we were getting dinner, and we were also in the dugout with him. We kind of wanted to get his autograph, but he was truly having a good time (not acting like a spoiled Hollywood star). He was talking on his cell phone telling people where he was and planning a get together for the next day, couldn't decide what to have as far as food, using bad language, picking on his brother and the others that were with him and asked us many times if we were having a good time, and then seeing him again in the parking lot, and getting lost in the parking lot following him was hilarious.

Oh, Glover. From what I've read, his theatre courses at Towson largely involve taking everyone to the pub and buying them drinks. And getting random guys to take off their underwear for him, obviously, which is something I should really try.

Is that James van der Beek?

Yes, indeed!

Professor Glover sounds entirely awesome, with his drinks-and-no-undies curriculum!

For a moment I thought it might be Michael's brother.

That's Distinguished Visiting Professor of Acting Glover:



Although, personally, I think he should be Professor of Awesome Hair.

His hair is a work of architecture - a Gothic cathedral of hair!

OMG! I love that story about John! And yes... it does let the mind wonder to intersting areas with Michael and Tom. hehe

It would have been so awesome to have seen Michael enjoying himself at the Dodgers event like that! I'm especially happy that there are fans out there who respect actors to let them be human and not hound them for autographs. :)

Thanks for keeping us up to date with news of our sorely missed Smallville boys! Every story I hear about John Glover, and every interview I read with him, just convinces me more of how awesome he is. Smallville was incredibly lucky to have him.

I'm so happy to hear about Michael just out having a good time. He is such a sweetie! And how nice of the poster to let him have his fun without imposing on him. I always think the memory means more than the autograph anyway.

I love that icon: yay for open-mouth-Mikey!

It really was a casting coup! Plot-wise, I'm sure Lionel would have died much earlier if everyone hadn't been so infatuated with John! He seems like a lovely guy.

Yes, it's great that they just let him be a big baseball fanboy and have a fun time. I liked how she mentions that Michael doesn't act like a "spoiled Hollywood star." He certainly didn't at the Con I went to this summer!

Hmmm, Tom and Michael naked monologuing... Oh yes, I'd buy that DVD! ;D

I love Michael being his regular fanboy self, yay! It's so great that he enjoys life in a nice, regular way as opposed to many stars out there. ♥

Thanks for the reports, babe!

Ooh yes, indeed! And since Michael likes to go "commando", Glover's "no underwear" rule would probably suit him very well!

Word! I love that he just showed up and mingled with the fans instead of going the VIP route. (And I love that he was "picking on" Eric! That's such a big brother thing to do!)

Hmm, combine the JG story with Michael's claim not to wear underwear and I think we might have discovered how he manages to be so sexy all the time.

I love the baseball story too - Michael is just so normal and grounded. I love that.

Yes, you've cracked his Sexy formula!

That's a big part of his appeal for me! No "But, I'm a celebrity!" airs with that boy!

Awesome find!

Classic Michael, I think, and so adorable! I love the "asked us many times if we were having a good time." Awwwww!
