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.

Tom Welling is one of our favorite guys in Hollywood. Not only is he incredibly handsome (doh, he used to be a model), but he is also very talented. However, he is not desperate to star in as many productions as possible. And he has no reason to be, since Smallville is one of the most successful TV series of our time. Tom Welling may not have an impressive career, but his 10 years of being the lead in Smallville must count for something. Besides this amazing TV series and a few roles in other TV series, Tom Welling has also starred in a few movies. Three movies, to be more precise. Here are they.

  • Cheaper by the Dozen

Cheaper by the Dozen is a 2003 American family comedy film about a family with 12 children — the Bakers. Tom Welling portrays Charlie Baker, the second Baker child. When the family moves to Evanston, Charlie is especially affected by the move. This is because all of his memories were in Midland, his hometown. Treated as an outsider by his peers, he grows more detached from the family. Only when he is removed from the football team do his parents notice how much he is suffering. For this part, Tom Welling was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for “Choice breakout movie star (male)”.

  • The Fog

The Fog is a 2005 horror movie directed by Rupert Wainwright and starring Tom Welling, Maggie Grace, and Selma Blair. The movie is a remake of the 1980 film of the same name. Tom Welling portrays Nick Castle, one of the descendants of the men who founded the town of Antonio Island, off the coast of Oregon. When the inhabitants of San Antonio unveil a statue honoring the town founders, a bizarre series of events start to occur, including several gruesome deaths and the presence of a mysterious fog. These events coincide with the return on the island of Elizabeth, Nick’s girlfriend. Unfortunately, The Fog was not well received and won the Fangoria Chainsaw Award for “Worst Film”.

  • Cheaper by the Dozen 2

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is the sequel to the aforementioned family comedy Cheaper by the Dozen. This 2005 comedy film sees Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Tom Welling, Hilary Duff and all the other cast members reprising their roles as members of the 12-child Baker family. Charlie Baker, Tom Welling’s character, who broke up with his girlfriend Beth in the first movie, finds a connection with Anne Murtaugh as they struggle with that they want to do versus what their fathers expect of them. Anne is portrayed by Jaime King.

None of these movies were box office hits. Moreover, most of them were considered to be some of the worst reviewed movies of the 2000s. Clearly, when it comes to movies, Tom Welling made some bad choices. Maybe that’s what determined him to stick with TV series instead. Even though Smallville ended, it is reported that Marvel Studios have expressed an interest in Tom Welling. Since the handsome actor has a penchant for fantasy, too, we are looking forward to seeing what projects will come out of this collaboration.

Discovered by a catalog camera scout at a party in Nantucket, golden boy Tom Welling had no idea what the future holds for him. He started as a construction worker, then he became a successful model, and now he is one of the best actors of his generation. He also has millions of fans who eagerly await for the superhero to come their way. However, this prince charming has found his princess. He has been married to model Jamie A. White since 2002 and the two seem very happy together. The two got married in Martha’s Vineyard. On the day of their wedding, they were surrounded by friends and colleagues, including former Smallville co-stars Michael Rosenbaum and Kristin Kreuk.

The two decided to live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, but they relocated to Los Angeles in March 2011. Sorry girls, it seems that this train has left the station. You can keep on daydreaming about him all you want, though. Now that Smallville is over, it is time for Tom to figure out what to do next. After all, the actor has starred in this hit TV series for 10 years. In a recent interview with the LA Times, he confessed that he is very grateful, but he also knows that it is time to move on. Everyone is wondering what will Tom’s next movie or TV series be. However, it seems that he is not involved in any projects yet. Maybe he just wants to take a vacation, a vacation that he truly deserves after 10 seasons of Smallville. And to think that he turned down the rile of the young Clark Kent twice before accepting it!

This would have prevented him from playing this role longer than any other actor and from being considered one of the best actors to have played this superhero. Meanwhile, Tom Welling tries his hand at golfing. He has hit the golf course for the 11th annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational that was held at Aria Resort & Casino at Shadow Creek, Las Vegas.

On June 13, Tom Welling gathered with Gabriel Aubry to play golf once again at the SAG Foundation Golf Classic that was held at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, Calif. You can golf all you want, Tom, but everyone is expecting to see you on the big or small screen once again!

He is also a director, producer and former model, but he is definitely more famous for his acting career. We all know him from productions such as Smallville, Cheaper by the Dozen, The Fog, and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Even though his career has always been on the spotlight, there are still many interesting facts that people do not know about this charming actor. Tom was born on April 26, 1977, in New York City, New York. His family moved around a lot, making stops in Delaware, Wisconsin and Michigan. He graduated from Okemos High School in Okemos, Michigan, where he discovered his passion for acting after starring in numerous school plays.

His big break came in 2001, when he made an appearance in the hit TV series Judging Amy. He then got a hit TV series of his own, being cast as the lead character in Smallville. He remained on the show ever since. However, few people know that he turned down the tole of the young Clark Kent twice before accepting it. Another thing that not many know about him is that prior to becoming a model and actor, he worked in construction.

Just like Christopher Reeve, Tom was not crazy about Superman prior to portraying Clark Kent in Smallville, nor does he read any of the Superman comics. People do regard him as Superman, though.

Just like any other guy, Tom Welling has hobbies and interests. He loves watching Seinfeld, which is his favorite TV show. And his favorite movie is Mutiny on the Bounty. He admires celebrities Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Bob Saget, Marlon Brando, Steve Martin, Robert De Niro and, naturally, Jerry Seinfeld.
