In the latest episode of their podcast “Talk Ville,” actors Tom Welling (Clark Kent) and Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) discuss the sixth season one episode of “Smallville,” “Hourglass.”
Tom and Michael discuss what it took to shoot the “raining blood” scene, why one in four episodes of “Smallville” was special due to funding and the different energy Eric Christian Olsen had on the series’ set.
Tom also shared his thoughts on the dangerous corn silo scene and talked about his stunt actor Chris Sayour getting injured.
This week Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit Hourglass, an episode full of crazy foreshadowing, scary good guest appearances, and deadly dangerous stunts. Tom fondly remembers acting against the blind Cassandra and learning how to act for the camera in fight sequences. Michael questions Kryptonite bodies of water and talks about the iconic doomsday blood raining down scene. Lots of good behind the scenes (non episode related) stuff this week too!‘Talk Ville’ episode description for ‘Hourglass’
