Man Crush: Tom Welling

Before Henry Cavill burns up theater screens as the latest Superman in Man of Steel, I thought I’d highlight one of the hottest men ever to don the superhero costume. Not going to lie, Tom Welling is definitely my type and I can’t believe it took me this long to feature him in my Man Crush series. If you thought the Smallville actor was cute back in the day, he’s even hotter today. The slight salt-and-pepper buzz cut really works for him. WOOF.

Welling was born in Upstate New York. Before landing his breakout role in the WB series, the 36-year-old actor guest starred in Judging Amy and Undeclared. He’s appeared in the Cheaper By The Dozen films and the 2005 remake of The Fog. Since Smallville ended, Tom tried his hand behind the scenes. He executive produced the short lived cheerleading series, Hellcats.

He’ll return to the big screen later this year, appearing with Zac Efron and Paul Giamatti in Parkland. The Tom Hanks-produced film follows the events that occurred at Parkland Memorial Hospital after JFK’s assassination. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in November 2013 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the historic event. Check out photos of Welling then and now below.

    he did have a lack of personality thing going though, tyra would have given him the boot on episode 3…

    He’s super gorgeous and super tall. Flawless skin with a chiseled bone structure. Beautiful inside and out.

    still would love him to play Superman someday on the Big Screen if Henry Cavill chose NOT to continue on ….

  • VanCity

    wow he got super hot with the buzz cut and scruff

  • He looks like Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) from Y + R now with the buzzed hair.

  • Ryan

    After ten years with the same haircut I can imagine how happy he was to change it up. Tom Welling is a handsome fella, but the show’s longevity definitely should be credited to the strong supporting cast. Allison Mack and John Glover in particular.

    If he is gay, he is a welcomed sight for our ‘camp!’ Gay or str8, he exudes sex! And he seems more handsome today than when he was Clark Kent.
