Even though Tom Welling is getting past the age of thirty he still looks as if he could play the young Clark Kent from the spin off Superman series named Smallville that we have watched for several years. The series started in 2001 and still continues today which is amazing considering most of the cast and crew have aged at least 9 years and still play the parts of you adults very well. It was lucky for the directors that they picked actors and actresses who were reasonably young and have aged gracefully since the start of the series. There is no telling how long the series might go for until they decide to change it to a real superman series like they had back in the 1950s. Tom Welling may never be a Christopher Reeves however Christopher Reeves has finished his career while Tom is still and up and coming actor who will be sure to be put into more series as well as movies.
In 2005 Tom Welling was introduced to the movies in the remake of the old film called the Fog where he and his friends where terrorized by what was in the fog, some king of evil force of nature from a long past. The movie was not the very best of thrillers however it was still a role that made Tom a little more famous than just being known for Smallville. His other movies are Cheaper by the Dozen as well as the sequel, Cheaper by the Dozen II. In 2010 Tom will appear in the movie length Smallville which is one that will decide the fate of the series. Over his career since the start of the Smallville series back in 2001 the awards nights have been very kind to Tom Welling. One of these awards included Best Actor on Television which is something to write home about.
