Yeah, Tom Welling would be great. He's been playing the Clark Kent character for years, it would be great to see Clark turn into Superman on the big screen. I guess for now I'll keep watching Smallville on Fridays.

He was awesome in The Tudors!------------quote----

I agree wholeheartedly. Anyone who does not agree, as jolly ol' King Henry VIII would have said, "Off with their heads!"
LOL--JUST KIDDING!! But he really was very, very, very good in The Tudors. Anyone who has never seen it, you should. You will get hooked and become a history buff. Even if you don't like history, it's that good of a show.
