Some more Hellcats pics of stars Matt Barr and Aly Michalka.. and that other chick that no one cares about
Hellcats is coming to a TV soon near you.
...assuming you have The CW network on your television. The same network that carries other Vancouver based hits like Supernatural and Smallville will again be looking to strike gold up here with a new show about cheerleaders.
With the backing of Superman Tom Welling's pocketbook & name attached to the project, Hellcats will surely come out of the gates strong as fans of Welling's will surely give it a shot.
Will the show be able to carry itself on quality once fans get a peek? That remains to be seen. But it is a safe bet that it should be able to squeeze out at least 2 seasons on the premise & names alone.
i have had a chance to see a few of the cast around town...some of it really good, some of it, Ashley Tisdale.
So far any interactions I have had, witnessed or heard of wth Tisdale has been to say the least, poor. No one is saying nice things about her yet, and as shown in the pic. The one time she was spotted by a fan, SHE RAN to her hotel. Running from 1 of us. A professional autograph hound. Well its immature. But running from a fan with a DVD who is a kid, is unacceptable. This is the attitude of one of the shows "stars" as she thinks of herself as...even if no one else does.
With music & television veteran Alyson Michalka (known to some as 1/2 of pop duo, Aly & AJ, and to others an actress on Disney teen comedy Phil Of The Future) attached to the project as 1 of the cheerleaders, there is at least 1 cute girl on the set who is nice to the fans. She has done as much as can be expected to quell over any sourness fans might have after meeting the bitter & snarly Tisdale.
Of course the real star of the show with the fans is Matt Barr. Best know for roles on One Tree Hill & Harper's Island, Barr has quickly established himself as one of the nicest celebs in town. Always willing to stop for autographs, a photo with or just to chat, Barr has been the shows best asset in trying to win the fans that its snobby diva Tisdale has tried so hard to alienate.
Below is a few pics from some of the encounters with the 3 cast members of the show.
Hellcats debuts September 8th on The CW.
Last night, something happened that no one expected...least of all me.
Tom Welling. The man I have criticized on multiple occasions in here for being less than pleasant cracked a little bit. Proof of such- HE SIGNED FOR ME!!
Yes naysayers, I can hear you already hastily typing out your anger filled rants at me & telling me how this proves I was wrong blah blah blah.
I will give the man some dues. He signed, and although he certainly didnt look pleased to be doing it, he still did it. I do chalk up the fact he was with company on having some impact on his decision. Even if you are the boss, sometimes you have to play the role of good guy.
He was with Matt Barr, a star on the new CW show Hellcats that will be coming soon to your televisions. It is produced by Welling & the pair were coming back from a trip to promote it in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Matt, for those of you unaware of who he is yet. Is one of the nicest, friendliest celebs there is. He sincerely is a nice guy. I joked with him that he must be my good luck charm, because that was the first time Tom had signed for me in 10 yrs. he had a good chuckle & said something along the lines of I should stick around him then.
I was so shocked by Welling's unexpected decision to sign the same item he declined just 72 hrs earlier that I really kinda flubbed much of any chance to get shots of the pair as they made their way out.
I snapped a couple pics on the move as they said their good-byes, this is the best of the two (other one was VERY blurry).... Sorry Tom fans, but its the only pic from last night. No hat. No glasses. Wish he could just be like this everytime.
That is two times in 72 hrs Tom signed for someone. In Vancouver, this is absolutely unheard of. Maybe knowing its his last season he is starting to slowly crack that unwilling persona hes shown here all these years. Because of his sudden turn, I have dropped Tom from 2nd worst celeb, all the way down to 9th. if this pattern continues, he might erase 10 years of negativity before the season ends & end up off my worst list all together.
For the record, with Mr. Welling signing for me finally...this leaves Allison Mack as the ONLY regular cast member who has never signed for me now.
So, heres a pic without any cross body tags for once.
And the FINALLY signed magazine that I have dragged around for 10 years...which, barring a private sale, will be in my autograph gallery sometime soon.
Smallville had several of their cast members at the 2010 Comic-Con this weekend.
None bigger than Justin Hartley.
Ok, breathe in & breathe out you Clark Kent fanatics. I am aware your anti-social hero is supposedly the star, but his bitterly hate filled attitude makes it impossible for me to acknowledge hes a star of anything.
before someone rants "he just wants his privacy"..well, then quit television and for fuck sakes...dont become an underwear model. Yeah, he craves privacy alright.
The Metropolis superheros played a little game of switch em' up on us this weekend. We saw Hartley leaving, but didnt see Welling. Then saw Welling return when we were expecting Hartley.
Tommy boy was his spiteful, ignorant, narcissistic self upon returning, going as far as to blame other people for not signing for me..instead of just saying "I'm just a cocksucker, thats why I wont sign". he blamed having to catch his ride...because that 15 seconds of signing for the 4 people there would ruin his whole day. Then he blamed it on a pap shooting, because I guess a camera lense is physically capable of weakening his arm so much that he cant lift up a pen.
All that aside. Tom actually said more to me there, than in the severla previous meetings combined over the years. I believe he even formed full sentences on occasion. Hooked on Phonics might be working for him. Tom did in fact sign 1 autograph, to the shock of everyone, on of all things...an 8x10 phot. The most dealer specific item there is. My Entertainment Weekly magazine, that I have dragged around on occasion since the 1st season he refused to sign, but a photo, he signed. The logic behind it is still unknown to any of us...even the guy who got it. In the world of Tom Welling, this was the NICEST hes ever been...and he was still a prick.
All that aside, Justin Hartley, the class act of the show made up for his co-stars pisspoor attitude by signing up a storm upon departing for Comic-Con. He apologized for not having time to sign more & promised if he saw us upon arriving, he would do the rest. Now there is a class act. When I revise my best celebries list next, Justin will be making the list...which I guess will balance out the fact his co-star is already on the worst list.
A few pics below...including the grand total ONE pic I got of Tom, after being denied by him for a 3rd time.
Also, check out the polls section on the side. There is a poll for best locally shot TV shows. You can pick up to 3 shows, and Smallville is of course on the list.
Sometimes I shoot something, and at the time dont think its worth posting, or forget to post it because something bigger is going on. Sometimes, I just decide to wait till there is more photos worth making a set out of to add to it. Most of these photos are several months old now....but they never made the light of day at the time. Well, better late than never?
Smallville cast have been shown in my posts before. However, I do have a few shots still that havent been posted in those prior mentions.
In this bunch you will see a handful of pics from the past of Erica Durance, Cassidy Freeman, Justin Hartley, Allison Mack & the king of pricks, Tom Welling.
While the likes of Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman & Callum Blue have been class acts with the locals. Tom Welling continues to be a cancer. His piss poor attitude that he has had since practically day 1 (even in season 1 he was a cock) even has worn on others who have been around him for any length of time. Kristen Kreuk is at best, unfriendly. Allison Mack who has no reason to have an ego, has one. Hopefully the newer castmates like Harley & Blue dont pick up Wellingitis. Also known as being a huge fucking douchebag.
In this set of photos, there is 1 of Welling standing in a secured area. He refused to leave that area, even going so far as to hide behind the small structure as much as he could to avoid even being seen by the 4 people who already knew he was there anyways. Despite a whopping FOUR people waiting for him till his ride showed up, Welling avoided even trying to be seen by them. An underwear model was afraid of being seen by people a 100 feet away???. When his girlfriend finally did show up, Welling speedwalked out & hopped in as if he had to go save a a baby from a burning building or something. Maybe someone needs to remind him he isnt actually Superman. he never acknowledged the 2 fans, let alone us. He never spoke. He just beelined for the vehicle as if he would catch some horrid disease if he slowed down. This is the same attitude every person who has ever met him has stated he carries.
I wont watch Smallville anymore. I'd like to. But I will not. I dont need to support the biggest douche in the industry... even if its at the cost of not supporting nice people like Freeman, Durance, Hartley & Blue.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
