Smallville

nights last night who was there who's there not ever so for those that couldn't attend last night can you tell us a little bit about nope it's an intimate moment between us and the folks and guess who gave a surprise we could we could say now well so what did surprise us last night they did in my pajamas underwear less true so I guess there's a little that's so rude where the two of y'all in your pajamas also or just just John okay okay so before we throw things over to the crowd I guess I figure I I'm gonna ask one question about

Smallville

what would you say besides the obvious was the biggest character arc for each of your characters Aquaman the biggest arc for your character my character oh the whole thing the entire series was...
smallville cast q a with at galaxycon richmond 2020
my character arc that would be my rephrase your question please okay how do I ask this another way maybe the biggest gosh yeah this is tough to ask Superman isn't it Bri Superman I'll give you his arc you look not to trust anybody there you go which legs already did his beginning I liked when you started staring at people when you started getting sexual and and Jonathan had to take you out in the woods and teach you how to what about the show John I'm gonna tell you my organs can I tell them my arm be careful because this is nonsense over here with these two you cannot I mean they're not worth anyway anyway so I had a fight with Clark's father and I basically killed him because he died in the fight Bo Duke and then I went in wooed his mother that's an ark that's an ark that's the dark that's a dark dark Ark I like that they they allowed her to dress up she went out she was undercover she played a superhero she was possessed a bunch of time so that's a little outside there and she get married work she got married at some point to some I think by the way I think the arc for for Lex bow I didn't say it was was really like he was pushed to the limit I mean everybody has a threshold so he pushed me liar you know and you goes you don't go so far you do so much before you start to say hey there's no other choice for me because no one's helping me here so I will have to be the evil villain that I'm no one pushed anyone...
smallville cast q a with at galaxycon richmond 2020
further than the way Lex pushed Lionel out the window out the window to his death that's true but I I must say I went to the producers and said when you do get rid of me let Lex kill me and that'll really push him over so Hans a big help do you ever look at people in the audience time ago well that kid right there is really cool but he looks more like a Harry Potter fan and his family his family dragged him stand up am i right I am a psychic I am correct you were really here because you love your family you'd never watch

Smallville

true very true get the back I knew I called it I looked at him I like that kid doesn't care but doesn't want to be here I can just look at going you would understand the Lexx character very well I think I think he said he watched an episode is that what you said one which episode got the general gist that's the first episode you couldn't watch the next week's one it wasn't good enough for you not enough meteor showers and depth you dark son of a gun you didn't have a chance what your father yeah right so your dad's a Superman fan your mom's not yeah well good for you son because hulu has just picked up the entire series yes you can watch every episode in its entirety watch me kill Lionel Luthor watch me harass him and him lie to me watch me never hooked up with Erica but I do hook up with Lana Lang and that's a character arc assault but are you at least having fun so far okay well that's what...
smallville cast q a with at galaxycon richmond 2020
matters most so how about on that note we do have people already lined up with the microphone so whatever questions I don't think anything's off-limits here today friends so uh let's get this party started my name is Curtis and my first question is really for Tom the question is obviously throughout

Smallville

you never on the Cape that was a big thing throughout the entire run that we were never gonna get to see it the question is when you were part of the crisis on Infinite Earths recently you were the one Superman who didn't join in the fight although you did get to Lex look into DECT Lex Luthor even though it wasn't yours what was that like to see actually that was okay I mean it was great what I liked about is you know all these people showed up talking about weird universes and clerks like what the hell are you talking about and then all this dude shows up with this book that's way too big for him to hold he's like Gandalf's little kid trying to hold this book and he's talking about these universes and I'm like huh and then he just disappears and I'm like I was annoying let's go back inside honey it was great hi are you a triplet I remember you from last night to here there's one that doesn't like to go out or something yeah is she here well I was worried about that because there's triplets and she showed up to her

Smallville

Knights and then I said where's the third time's like never ask my kid that...
could have been bad oh she's dead oh she just doesn't like people she might as well be dead I'm just kidding that was dark I was just being stupid oh yeah hey how are you but it's their questions so let's stick over there we'll get back to you over there buddy I love you question for anybody we heard come on Ellen anyway I read one time every acting job was like a learning opportunity and I just wanted to find out what of anything that you learned on

Smallville

that has helped you in the rest of your career since I had to learn everything I didn't know what a mark was when I got there they really hit your mark on my they're like that piece of tape and I'm like oh why do you guys call it a mark that's what we call it just can you stand there and by the way how upset would he get season two but he became a pro he'd be like get your freakin mark well that's cuz Rosenbach there's a there's a thing there's a and not one is better than the other but for me when they put a mark it's like a little T on the ground and you walk up you put your toes on it right or just before it well that's how I do it Rosenbaum walks up and stands right on the middle of it and the difference is the focus puller it's a different you know he's trying to figure out where you're gonna stand based upon where you stand Rosenbaum would always so they he didn't know this but they used to put his mark like four inches back...
because by the time he stood on it he was actually where he needed to be and they never told him that I was so into the moment that I didn't I couldn't be distracted by a mark you know what else a she forgot her I used to have a sandbag he just put a sandbag down then I don't have to think about I just all of a sudden you I know that's what happens you try to be serious you're like hey Clark listen man so every tag like there's a couple things we learned what's your name Superman I guess whichever one you want to go with in spite of the Superman curse what curse so it's basically once you become Clark Kent or Superman you really never have anything else it's just I guess it's true what are you gonna do is that true is that true yeah technically you weren't Superman it's if you put the suit on part of it is because then once you put the suit on it's hard for people at least in the old days they really couldn't see you any other way because it's such an image now there's so many images all the time online everybody every actors freedom suit thank you thanks thanks for bringing that up hi guys my name is Robert this is for everybody you all had a lot of meet between the posessions meteor rock influence and like the body swapping from week to week what was your favorite to kind of take on or your favorite moment as far as playing outside of your traditional key transference for me when I got to play Lionel Luthor...
very hard to play Clark you guys did that really great doesn't do anything well I mean he doesn't have to because you can see him thinking the way you paced everything was awesome you guys did a great job there was no curse on that either shut up no you know it's funny people say that like you just I think Tom really he definitely had the hardest job because all this information is going around him he's got to react to everything you know I thought you were like you're in this always in the center of everything so and by the way he's working 14 hours a day he's working 60 pages a week I'd say I remember going I I don't envy that you know and yeah you know when I try that sucks man I go yeah but still you're but I don't for me it was probably onyx onyx and Lex Masonic swen I was I was fighting myself and that was really hard so I was looking at exes and my body double was playing there and so I was fighting myself and it was just really a great experience playing with myself I think that was the I think that was the script that Michael came to set like the week before he goes dude check it out they got me playing two characters in the next episode paid twice you know what he goes I'm too weak characters I'm playing Lex against Lex I got to pay me twice I mean I don't think it works like that he goes yes it does dude you can't just play two characters guess what it doesn't work to get paid twice and Lex missed by...
the way when he's good you could see live life he could have had and all that sweetness we didn't have a shitty dad anyway that's it one Episode Isis that was fun thanks guys Isis so they didn't come up

Smallville

created Isis that's do you think they were trying to figure out a name for their group and they're like Isis let's go with that yeah I'm sure no one saw that episode well that's so dark all right is your first on-screen appearance with Cassidy Freeman so it's curious what you did to prepare for that scene you know I was really nervous that day because I hadn't been Lex in three years and I called them like a week before and I just said hey you got me next Friday the whole day do whatever but you got me one day I'm wearing a ballcap figure it out and they did they wrote it in so they wrote all this stuff in so I got this like a few days before and I had never met Cassie but remember this agent called me and said hey she's a little nervous she's doing this role I guess she was not taking over for me but she was joining you guys in season what 8 so I were talking to her like years ago and going hey it's gonna be great the crews great gonna have a blast so now I come in I've never met her other than on the phone and I have to kill her and so it was just it was kind of odd but it was kind of it was cool at the same time because thank God had already done my scene with him and that was sort of nerve-wracking...
like there's this giant crane shot and the destroyed Luthor mansion the crane comes down on me and I'm like line Tom starts laughs and breaks the ice and everybody starts laughing but it was difficult I was nervous and we we worked 24 hours that day on all the scenes but the Cassidy scene it was I like that I came back and actually did something I killed someone the question is it's my boyfriend and anything you wear this did this just happen right now Nathan's my boyfriend I love that so anyway anyway I really have a crush on Erica but out sasquatch sasquatch all right really no seriously persons people say mermaids so we're like 50/50 up there a hybrid glad we could help I like that they said that's like the biggest argument in their relationship so good for you yeah could you just could you imagine them in bed though no no no not sexually I swear I swear to god I wasn't thinking that at all you are perverts especially the Harry Potter kid I told you it's sasquatch I'm going to bed yeah oh sweet ears so oh my gosh it's that new lotion your skin is so supple sasquatch shut up am I your little mermaid yeah just keep going on this like it's Sasquatch your back you better put me in your phone as mermaid villain hero do you own another show what would y'all want to play you're robbing don't say it I think I'd like to play sasquatch Batman Batman and flash he like you like Batman I like Flash I was flash though now why...
was that question only for Michael and I by the way that would be pretty cool imagine you in a Batman outfit imagine me flash we got Riddler over here the bad guy we got like a Wonder Woman ask kind of woman over here that would be kind of cool all right thank you hi somebody adjust the microphone please jeez what are your favorite superheroes not including Superman or Supergirl super very good question very good question probably he-man well if you say he-man then also Skeletor Barack Obama I like Wonder Woman what good question not Jason will annoy said mermaid who is it under the sea Aria area I thought you were more of a poison ivy kinda just referring back to the Sasquatch family roommate go ahead young lady so my question is hit it on the nose right next question it's a it really is kind of Clark's fault that Lex became evil do you think thank you right right he was supposed to be there for him you did Clark gave him mouth-to-mouth do you think powers that would have been evil if Clark would have just been honest from the beginning and been like hey I'm from Krypton that's how I saved you I think so secrets they tear us apart that's what small a lot of secrets lot of secrets in

Smallville

I like Lana you like Lana you like Lois Allison what's her character's name Chloe likes you not many wine one yeah we had fun though did we not I think we did wasn't that fun was it not fun but what about on the show all right what's your name hi...
my name is Trish I'm this question is for Tom so I know in the show that you were that you were actually wearing red and blue do you find yourself drawn to those colors now absolutely not in fact you just did that so that you didn't have to change too much yeah but now with the other project the project's literally went that I've done after the show I walk in for the jury for the wardrobe rehearsals and I guess once I just want you guys to know no red and no blue no blue they're like different shades of red or blue I'm like I'll be open to some suggestions but no red and blue and I do try to avoid it yes those are two primary colors I'm wearing blue right now well when you're working you don't want to be distracting somebody goes oh he's wearing blue and red hi my name is Ari hi my question is in crisis your clerk gave up his powers for his family but if it ever came time what'd he get his powers back at any time they tell me this is just one alternate universe there's like millions of you I was like stop let's just shoot this scene because that's all Clark knows at the moment so I don't know okay well first things first I'm also a triplet just thought I'd throw that out there and you're the third one both okay you could say that why are you the third one aren't you all despair maybe he was born eight seconds after I don't know asked my folks they probably know were you the last one out yes...
that should be a movie last one out about triplets room last one out this summer okay well my name is Lance my question is actually for Tom it's a very specific question you're ready Tom you ready Tom could you please if you could sing the opening to

Smallville

no let's say hey if you want I can do it with you man how about that absolutely absolutely not come on Tom let's do you want me I'll just get behind me on this let's do it thank you for your question next all right what's your question uh hi my name is autumn it goes out to our Erica when they show that episode of Justice where they show the episode of Clarke meeting the Justice Society of America what happened at the end where they showed the burial for Carter like it just like ended like what's all the gracious rising no idea what episode you're talking about please help me folks so what happened to him everybody knows except and I know what it was like to film that way it was 5:00 in the morning and I we were like laying on the cold pavement and these weird wings made out of real bird feathers it was weird but trying to be a jerk I honestly don't I don't remember it wasn't on-screen we probably have no idea I just want to say Erica I love you but Tom and Michael are so iconic just being together because like my quite delightful isn't it like to sit and watch them be together as well sheepy Erica erica pinches herself every time she has to be with us can we get...
this can we get a zoom in on the phone okay hold on that's the Harry Potter kid like if this stupid wand would work oh now they're trying to take a picture of the picture of the picture you made a kid keep gratulations all right it's become
