April 8, 2011: "Smallville" Stars Look Back at Pilot

Smallville TVLine.com has published part of Matt Mitovich's oral history of "Smallville" compiled for the "CBS Watch!" publication.

    "They weren't forthcoming at all as to what the nature of the show was going to be, and they weren't releasing a script," Welling tells me. "At that time, I was given some advice that it could be a warning sign - that the project wasn't completed."

    Fortunately for those who would become fans of the show, Nutter stepped in to soothe Welling's concerns. "[He said] it was going to be about Clark Kent before he became Superman, and I found that to be a lot more interesting [than an Superman series]," Welling says. Still, to assume such an iconic role "was a fantastic opportunity, but at the same time daunting," Welling admits.

For much more from Tom Welling, Allison Mack, Kristin Kreuk and others, including casting anecdotes, tributes to the fans, and teases for the May 13 series finale, watch for the May issue of "CBS Watch!", which is sold at Barnes & Noble and Hudson News, and available for free subscription at CBSwatchmagazine.com.
