Tom Welling: 'Time to Move On' from Smallville

Tom Welling goes shopping at Whole Foods on Sunday (June 5) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actor went incognito in a baseball cap and sunglasses.

Tom recently chatted with the LA Times about the end of Smallville.

“It can all go away and can go fast,” Tom said. “I feel so grateful. But I also know it’s time to move on.”

Smallville recently ended after a 10-season run.

    Ah Tom, that time was about 5 years ago.

  • Alaia

    Move on to what? He’s a horrible actor who will probably never get a job again.

  • Lola

    Miss Smallville, miss him and Erica Durance. Come back to my screen :(

  • Sean

    I’ll never understand some people who label certain actors as “horrible”. Tom is Not horrible. Is he Emmy worthy? No. But he’s certainly not horrible. He can definitely act. He’s just limited. He’s been playing the same good guy character for the last 10 years, give the guy a break. He’s definitely grown over the years and gotten better.

    He is so hot. And a very good actor. Maybe he meant it was time for the haters to move on? LOL. But hotness like that dominates their minds.

    I understand that. They can never move on. That hotness will haunt them all their days. Yes indeed.

  • Carmen

    SMALLVILLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EJEM, EJEM, I MEAN TOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jason

    It was a great run. To be totally honest, smallville got me through some very rough times in my life. The show got me out of depression. Toms character was a huge inspiration in my life. I wish the show would go on, but that would be too selfish :)

  • Veepu


    Buy the DVD and relive once again… After the finale I watch it back

  • Kisy

    For The People Labeling Him As An “Horrible Actor”, Well I Don’t See Any Of You Haters Acting On TV, So Shut Up. You’re Just Mad Because He Gets What You Get In 10 Years, In 2 Days.

  • Tom Riggs

    did tom wants smallville season and if he didn’t why don’t he help produce or direct the spin off of smallville call it metropolis and can continue to incorporate all the dc heroes into it

  • Saville

    Tom Welling is the BEST modern day Superman since Christopher Reeve! Erica Durance is the BEST Lois Lane of all time! The show “Smallville” was one of the BEST shows to ever get picked up by a network and there’s a reason it lasted 10 year… it had quality, creativity, and excitement!

  • Rocio Romero

    Tom,we wait for the nex Smallville season in Spain, and I guess why don’t make a movie??? Maybe is so fantastic in 3D …. Wowww. Tom is always natural and he have a fresh look for shoping,loves.

  • Firmbeluever1

    Sunglasses and a baseball cap is considered “incognito”? I’d recognize that handsome face anywhere! Lol I wish Mr Welling all the best in his future endeavors. I hope he has something in the pipeline that keeps him in front of the camera!

  • Donnie

    It was a great show but it’s time to move on .I’ll miss it though!

  • Terence


    Superman? Superman? Really? You have to wear the suit in order for you to gain that title.

  • katrina wright

    good job with smallville great run will miss watching it on tv but as i say everytime i like tom welling as an actor he is great in anything he does, goodluck for the future friend hugs katrina london England

  • Ray


    Good thing he wore the suit then. Better thing that Superman fans know Superman is always more than the suit. Sad thing that Superman haters never knew that. Troublesome thing that the heirs lawsuit gives the suit to the heirs and DC will have to come up with a new suit. Guess DC’s new suit Superman won’t be Superman to the haters? Illogical, but the haters never knew or loved Superman at all. And Welling, was definitely my 2nd favorite Superman. Got to give top spot to Chris, but Welling did him proud.

  • leo

    Just about to see smallville finale!
    more news about tom welling please!

  • Terence


    Dean Cain is my Superman. Tom Welling never wore the suit. He is great clark kent. And he did portray Superman when came to the personality. But he isn’t Superman since he didn’t put that suit on. And Brian and Kelly gave us that B.S. excuse. DC/Warner lifted the restrictions for the last season.

  • Kiki

    I’ve been watching Smallville since when I was like 5 :P

  • http://facebook robert

    I can’t wait for the future films and stuff but i do and still want Smallville, lets pray that he will be chosen for Justice League as SUPERMAN

  • Seinsoth

    Well.. Tom is right

    Greetings from Germany

  • Seinsoth

    I would Be pleased to see Tom in another Role as Clark Kent .. He can do more

    Greetings from Germany

  • Ray


    Your complaints are illogical. He wore all kinds of superhero suits on the show, from the the all black and gray, to the red and blue. Superman in the comic book has gone through all sorts of suits, and he was always Superman. Come 2013, the heirs will own the most well known blue and red suit and DC will need yet another suit. Meanwhile the reboot is featuring a new suit too. If the suit made Superman, he would have been dead since the golden age. According to the haters, reboot Superman isn’t Superman because he has no red trunks? And DC’s post 2013 Superman won’t be Superman because his costume is likely to be black and gray, as specified in the lawsuit? Illogical. Superhero costumes change all the time, but the hero doesn’t. Tom Welling, was a great Superman, and after 2013 even the last of the die hard haters will have to admit it, when they embrace the new Superman suit, and admit the suit never made the Man.

  • Karon

    Tom and Erica make an electrifying couple! Their chemistry is sooo hot! Tom is a much better actor than many realize. Clark Kent is a good guy. It’s very hard to breathe life into a guy without a lot of faults and keep him interesting. Tom kept that character going for 10 years. Tom Welling is man who has principles and values. His personal standards made the comic book character come to life weekly for a decade. He may not get an Oscar or an Emmy, but you have to give him credit. Good Job Tom Welling!

    @Tom Riggs:

    great minds think alike, I was think the name should be metropolis. I want more of this kind of excitment. Smallville made my heart race with anticipation. something new to see every episode and non predictable.

  • Muffin

    Yes, it is surprising that a TV program can help us in difficult times. I too got through some difficulties because of the show…..although I would not admit it to anyone in my real life!! TW will never know (or care) if I live or die, but I am grateful to him anyway.

  • speed

    problem is he will always be seen as clark kent now as he played him for so long. he is a great actor.

  • Carol

    Tom is as handsome as ever. Please Tom don’t disappear on us. Looking forward to your next project. We miss you & Smallville. Smallville & Tom was the best. Forever Smallville.

  • Alejandra V
