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.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
