He looks really really good, dreamy in his younger years, not that good of an actor, people rely on his looks and charm

Actress charged with recruiting sex slaves 02:28 (CNN)A judge has approved the release of actress Allison Mack on a $5 million bond, days after the former "Smallville" star was arrested on Friday for her alleged role in a sex trafficking case, a spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office told CNN. The spokesperson could not confirm whether Mack had been released as of Tuesday afternoon. The actress was later seen leaving jail, according to media reports. Mack will be under house arrest in California and must wear an electronic monitoring device, the official added. Mack's attorneys have not responded to CNN's request for comment. Mack's approved release comes on the same day it came to light that her attorneys are in the process of negotiating a possible plea deal with prosecutors, according to public filings. The documents, signed by a judge last week and obtained by CNN, indicate a "reasonable likelihood" that the plea negotiations will "result in a disposition of this case without trial." Mack was indicted last week on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, according to a statement released by the Justice Department. Mack's charges relate to her alleged involvement with an organization called Nxivm (pronounced NEX-ium), an Albany, New York-based group that claimed to be a self-help program but was, in reality, a pyramid scheme in which some recruits were exploited sexually and for their labor,prosecutors allege in court filings. Mack pleaded not guilty. As part of her release, Mack is prohibited from contacting or associating with any present or former members of Nxivm, the U.S. Attorney's Office official told CNN. Nxivm's founder, Keith Raniere, also known within the group as Vanguard, is also fighting charges. Mack, 35, is professionally best known for her role as Clark Kent's confidant Chloe Sullivan on CW's "Smallville," which ran for 10 seasons. The case The allegations made against Mack and Raniere stem from what officials say were activities that took place as part of a secret society within Nxivm called "DOS," in which women recruited others under false pretenses to perform sexual acts. Women who successfully recruited were called "masters" within the group, while others were referred to as "slaves." The indictment claims many so-called slaves were branded on their pelvic areas with a symbol which, unbeknownst to them, incorporated Raniere's initials. Raniere was the only male in DOS and the leader, according to court filings. Raniere's attorneys have not responded to CNN's request for comment. A statement posted on the homepage for the Nxivm website says the group is "working with the authorities to demonstrate [Raniere's] innocence and true character." "We strongly believe the justice system will prevail in bringing the truth to light," the statement reads. If convicted of the crimes charged, Raniere and Mack each face mandatory minimum sentences of 15 years imprisonment, and up to life imprisonment.

The problem being typecasted. Many an actor in the past had that problem. Don Adams will always be Maxwell Smart. Edward Platt Chief etc

He was cute and that doesn't always grow into hot. That is important for that sort of actor.

He could have been a great famous actor. He could have gotten some of the best roles if he didn't take a break. It's very disappointing. I would love to see him in more things. Especially things that interest me. What he has been in doesn't peak my interest.

+Stefan Sarclet Yeah he probably would have.

Now that there are rumors of Henry Cavil leaving the role of KalEL in the DCEU...WB should cast Tom Welling(He played a Live Action version of the character for more time than any other actor) Then you can include Erica Durance insteard of Adams and Michael Rosenbaum in the place of Jesse E...but keep them in the current DCEU...make them interact with Gal Gadot,JM's Aquaman,Will Smith,etc... And just pretend that they are playing the same characters(eventhought is obiously another version)of previous movies(MofS,BvS, JL)...not the Smallville's Universe Clark,Lex or Lois

He was actually a construction worker before he was ''discovered'' in his early 20's - more proof that men are completely unaware of their looks. Tom should have continued as a model rather than an actor.
Makaveli - (27 days ago)
Nah, acting did him good. I’d rather have him acting rather than being just eye candy for the rich.

Surely he is just picky or not looking for a big commitment. I refuse to believe he is not getting work!!
S. D. H. (5 months ago)
Tom Welling has always been a stiff actor for the most part, but I still always enjoyed him on Smallville as Clark Kent, & he had some real shining moments in that series. His performance on Lucifer, however, was cringeworthy. It was just painful to watch.

It was the movie scripts, not Welling.!! But I can't believe the difference in appearance from 2011 to 2017.!!! So with his new look he should have an easy time of NOT getting stuck in the Smallville image. Super good-looking guy no matter what!!!

Matt Holub Because they don't want to work with someone attached to a cult, unless you are Tom Cruise.

Take SMALLVILLE off the AIR!!!! Why is Cosby show removed because cosby admitted giving drugs to have sex BUT Smallville is still on every channel and lanalang and Chloe ran a sex slave cult where they lured CHILDREN into sex slavery by promising them fame and instead raped their little booty holes for days some years branded them with cattle prods like meat and participated in group raping of these children. TAKE SMALLVILLE OFF THE AIR

Think he overstated his value ! Well knock knock don't count ur chickens before they hatch ! Needs to grow as an actor n he hasn't ! Should of tab in the Superman mantra n he distance himself too much from it ! Look all big time actors playing super heroes now ! There is a market n he decided too tap out of it ! Well grass ain't richer on the other side !
