Tom Welling, who for 10 years played Clark Kent on the TV series “Smallville,” comes in at No. 2 on Nerdage’s list of actors with geek appeal.
“Smallville” concluded after its 10th season in May.
He has also worked as a producer and director, executive producing the show “Hellcats” and co-executive producing “Smallville.” He directed seven episodes of “Smallville” during its run.
There was some controversy over no iconic shot of Tom Welling in full Superman regalia in the finale of “Smallville,” but producers told The Hollywood Reporter that such a shot wasn’t needed.
While Welling’s future projects haven’t been announced, he told the Los Angeles Times in May that he was ready for the next stage of his life.
“I feel so grateful. But I also know it’s time to move on.”
