Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum talk about Evangeline Lilly cameo, Luthor security, angsty Whitney, and a new low in the latest episode of their “Smallville” rewatch podcast, Talk Ville.
The two costars also discuss their lack of interest in Whitney’s subplots, how Clark’s wood chopping scene worked behind the scenes and techniques in acting without any lines.
We kick things into motion this week with Episode #13: Kinetic. Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit the ‘kryptonite tattoo’ episode and remember the uncredited cameo from Evangeline Lilly, talk about how nobody cared about the angsty Whitney subplot, and dish out an all time low for the podcast thus far. Tom talks about what went into the ‘Clark hand chopping wood’ scene and draws comparison between Lex and Jeff Bezos. Michael talks about the performance from Allison in this episode and the power of the closing scene with Lana at the Talon.Talk Ville episode description
