Tuesday Morning Man: Tom Welling!

Tom Welling celebrated his 43rd birthday over the weekend so today I am featuring this handsome guy as the MM!

When it came time to cast the role of Clark Kent for the series Smallville back in 2001, producers conducted a nationwide search to find the perfect man for the job and they came up with a then-unknown Welling.

Just 23 at the time, Tom stepped right into the lead in a series that chronicled the life of the young Kent before he becomes Superman.

The actor grew up before our eyes and not just as an actor: beginning with season nine, he is also an executive producer and has directed several episodes.

Tom worked as a model and in construction before Smallville came along.

He found the time for a few feature film roles during the show’s long run including Cheaper by the Dozen and its sequel and co-starred in a remake of The Fog.

Since the show left the air in 2011, he has appeared in the films Parkland, Draft Day and The Choice. He also co-starred in the Fox fantasy comedy-drama Lucifer as Lt. Marcus Pierce.

4 Remarks

  1. Dayum.. he is ageing quite well.

  2. It’s a shamed that he hasn’t been more in demand after “Smallville” ended.

  3. Seeing him with graying hair is … very strange. He’s 7 months younger than I am, but seeing him with that graying hair makes me feel really old! And I loved him in Lucifer, but it was odd seeing him play someone other than Clark Kent!

  4. He recently had a fun role in “Lucifer” Everybody seems to overlook it, but it was quite substantial. He has become quite a good actor. I measure acting by TV roles. They are, to me, more of an acting challenge and not at the whim of an editor.
