Cheaper by the Dozen Article!!
Thanks to DTS for the transcript of the small article in Seventeen
Magazine about Tom Welling (Clark Kent)
and his new movie, Cheaper by the Dozen. Here it is:
It's a bird, it's a plane, its... flying breakfast food? We found
Smallville's Tom Welling up to his neck in eggs.
Kryptonite brings Clark Kent to his knees, but Tom Welling's toxic
substance is stranger: scrambled eggs. "In one scene, there's havoc at
the breakfast table and eggs go flying everywhere--I ended up
completely covered," he says. "I haven't eaten them since." The food
fight was part of his first movie, Cheaper by the Dozen (also starring
Hilary Duff and due out in late December). Tom plays Charlie Baker,
one of the 12 farm kids who move to Chicago when their dad (Steve
Martin) becomes coach of a college football team. Charlie's torn
between his small-town roots and his new fast paced life in the
metropolis. Sounds familiar-- but Tom swears the role isn't a Clark
rerun. "Charlie is slightly darker and more mature than that other
guy," says Tom. Besides the egg fiasco, Charlie has to deal with
big-city bullies who stuff cornstalks in his locker (don't ask!). Life
on the set, however, is low-key -- Tom spends his off hours shooting
hoops with Steve Martin. "I'm just having fun," he says. You don't
need X-ray vision to see that. - Dina Sansing"

what has been happening in Smallville over the summer, and feature the
new sheriff Maggie Sawyer (who we have already seen a couple of times
in Season 2) and Max Taylor, a reporter for the Daily Planet. Both
characters are well-known to all Superman Comic Book fans. Also, the
Daily Planet building is featured prominently in these shorts.

20 pages on Smallville!!
Last month, we reported to you that CFQ will have a 20-page feature on
Smallville for their August/September issue. You will be able to read
comments made by the directors, writers, producers and many other crew
members. Here's a few extracts about certain Season 2 episodes:
- Redux: “It was also a bad script, and no one had the energy to make
it better, so it was a dismal experience. I will say that Mat Beck and
his guys really saved it with a lot of visuals effects; when I finally
saw it on the air, I thought it wasn’t that bad.” – Greg Beeman
- Prodigal: "Here is a great example of Lionel's parenting skills: He
pits them against each other. What the episode does is it gives you an
insight into how just %!#@ up the Luthors are and how far Lionel will
go, then they turn on him, which is great.” - Al Gough
Visage "What was fun is that we really wanted, quite honestly, to kill
off Whitney." – Al Gough
- Precipice: “In the original script and the early cut of the show,
the stabbing of Helen was really, really violent. It was the bloodiest
scene we’d done and it had to be cut way back." – Miles Millar
July 8, 2003
Clark's ring makes the list!!
