Wednesday Morning Man: Tom Welling!
Today is Tom Welling’s 40th birthday so what better time to once again feature 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.
