That’s how fast Tom Welling was yanked off stage Thursday after The CW session for Hellcats. The 58-year-old actor is one of the executive producers of the new Glee rip-off cheerleader series, but is best known for playing Clark Kent on Smallville. That was why he was peppered with questions immediately after the session.
Smallville is going into it’s 45th 10th and final season. How should it end, Welling was quickly asked. “I have my own ideas,” he said. “In Season Three, I had the idea that it would be great if Martha give Clark the suit and he goes off to Metropolis.” That happened in Seasons four or five, he says. “It’s pretty much a Metropolis show now, so, my idea kind of went out the window.”
A publicist broke up the scrum by insisting she had to whisk him back to the airport to get him straight back to Smallville‘s Vancouver set. What, he can’t fly? Turn back time? Bend publicist’s necks in his bare hands??
