OK, OK. We'll talk about the TCA's

Although it doesn't have all too much to do with the problems plaguing Singerman, due to overwhelming request, we wanted to talk about what went down at the Teen Choice Awards that aired on Sunday Night on FOX. Fresh from the worldwide reclaimation project, known as the international Singerman marketing tour, a noticeably thin Brandon Routh showed up at the TCA's resembling a young Robert Carradine from his "Revenge of the Nerds" days, sporting a t-shirt that said "You Are Here" (how philosophic of him). The people at WB's marketing department must've been trying to find the nearest cliff to jump off of (assuming Singer didn't already push them off). After all, they've spent the past few months trying to show how "masculine" this guy is, yet he shows up on national television dressed like a frat boy and looking like he's been following the Kate Bosworth diet. Routh, to a mild smattering of applause (I mean how many teens actually saw Singerman anyway?) presented some mindless award to Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston, from his seat for some reason. I guess they didn't want him up on stage dressed like he works at a summer camp.

Compounding the humorous factor to this was the fact that about three minutes later, the "other Superman," Tom Welling, comes out to present an award looking built like a brick shithouse, and well groomed in a stylish sport coat, and they actually let him up on stage to give it. The crowd seemingly goes nuts, with the typical "We love you Tom's" echoing all around.

Now for the REALLY good part...who does Tom Welling wind up presenting an award to? Routh? Uh no. Spacey? yeah right. He winds up giving an award to JOHNNY DEPP for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2, and Welling noticeably dwarfs not only his co-presenter Kristen Bell, but the 6' tall Depp as well. For one time at least this summer, Captain Jack Sparrow actually looked up at Superman. You've got the big screen "multi million dollar" Superman sitting in the audience looking like a $2 tool, while his contemporary is up on stage looking like a million bucks giving an award to the guy who's film just kicked the ever-loving crap out out of the other guy's movie. Is that your daily recommended allowance of irony or what?

This blog is brilliant. Singer ruined SM and the more of us who scream this out the better. Hopefully the execs at WB will get a clue and get this guy as far away from Superhero movies as possible. Greatt job.,

Brandon Routh made a good Christopher Reeves' clone.

He's not Supes though. That's Tommy.

Your an idiot. No one cares about your stupid opinon on a movie that made more than you will ever make in a lifetime. Brandon Routh looked fine. Your just looking of any excuse you can come up with to bash an actor and a movie just cause you don't like it. You are pathetic.

I agree with the last comment. You're so right about the irony of the situation, and that TW is built like a brick shithouse. lol.

That is ridiculous, Tom Welling was at the TCA's in 2004 wearing a hat backwards and looking awfully skinny in his own right in a t-shirt. As long as Brandon is in shape for the movie who cares, he was much bigger than Welling in Superman Returns.

That is ridiculous, talk about grasping at straws. Welling was at the 2004 TCA's looking just as skinny and wearing a hat backwards. BR was in great shape for SR better shape than Welling is on Smallville.

Welling isnt the face of a $200 million movie franchise about Superman, so he's not held to the same standard. Routh on the other hand is....for now at least

Tom Welling IS Superman. Routh is merely (with all due respect) a Christopher Reeve clone (and not even a good one).

Tom Welling is Superman are you fucking kidding me or what. He is a b-level actor on a shitty Superman cable TV show seen by less than 5 million people every week. Oh yeah by the way he does not even play Superman on the show, just Clark. Why don't you just say Dean Cain is Superman while you are at it? If Chris Reeve was still alive he would be the only one to totally lay claim to that throne. Brandon still has some work to do, but you are in the minority thinking he was bad in the movie. Don't let sites like this fool you, the buzz was that BR did a nice job.

look at the guys face; he aint a naturally huge guy, you know? He's got a pretty skinny face. He put some huge work into getting those muscles. And you know, he stops filming and looses it! I mean, what does he need it for! He still don't look skinny by any means, just thinner. Don't listen to what this awful writer says. Tom Welling is NOT superman!

You know Chris Reeve did not maintain his size in between Superman films either. Nobody talked about that back then because the media and fans were not nearly as obsessed with celebrities lives.

What was Routh even doing at the Teen Choice Awards? Noone even knew who the Hell he was, they were all too busy going to POTC instead of SR. LOL
