Screencaps from the trailer to Michael’s new film “Back in the Day.”
The first one was fun (for me.. not sure if anyone even bothers to read these..) so here we go again: S01E02
Love the Clex marriage proposal!
In last week’s podcast, Michael was asked about directing the Smallville episode “Freak”:
Q: “Were the actors instantly responsive?”
Michael: “You have to prove yourself. It was day one. I had to get performances, it was the biggest scene of the episode: Allison Mack, I had to have in tears; Tom’s intense. I could tell they were supportive. And then the next day, I took in some of the dailies “Watch this little scene right here" and I think their eyes sparkled: "Oh, he’s really looking out for us.” And when you get their trust, you can really do anything.”

You know where you’d be comfortable, Clark? Lex’s lap.
More #TomWelling in Clark Luthor mode, but in motion! #Smallville
From yesterday’s podcast: Michael describes his reaction to shooting the Smallville Pilot.
Michael: “It’s usually personality that’s gotten me where I am. I never considered myself “Wow, look at that handsome hunk walking down the street.” I never was that guy obviously. So then I shaved my head, and I had this big Matrix nodule thing on the back of my head, this nodule or whatever. So I’m like, wow, this is a pout, I’m standing here next to this six foot five hunk of a man model, Tom Welling and I’m like, where do I fit? There’s this beautiful Asian girl here…oh my god, they’re ALL pretty people!”
"And then I realized that Lex doesn’t have to be a hunk, does he? And I just stuck to my guns. I remember after the pilot though, I still thought I was going to be fired. At least, I got a pay cheque!"
From today’s podcast, Michael tells the story of director David Nutter showing him scenes they’d just shot from the pilot of Smallville.
Michael: “He played the opening of the pilot and then the scene with me where the car falls off the bridge and Clark rescues Lex and I had a tear in my eye….it was the first time I didn’t mind looking at myself on film.”

It was everything I had hoped for, and more.
