Tom Welling has a new office on the Warner Bros. lot and there's an empty parking spot right out front -- it's marked "C. SHEEN" -- which reminds him how quickly things can change in television and how lucky he's been to be one of television's steadiest stars, with a decade logged on the now-ending "Smallville. " "It can all go away and can go fast," said the 34-year-old, whose new digs still had unpacked boxes and bare walls when he sat down last week to talk about the final flight of "Smallville," which airs the two-hour series finale (appropriately titledĀ "Finale")

John Schneider, whose career has spanned "The Dukes of Hazzard" in the '80s, "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" in the '90s and the still-running "Smallville," has listed his Agoura Hills home for sale at $2,199,000. The actor raised his three children on the 3-acre spread, which has a creek that leads to the area where "Dukes" (1979-85) and "Dr. Quinn" (1993-98) were shot. Schneider described the English-style ivy-covered house of nearly 7,000 square feet as having "an East Coast kind of flair.

I love Howard Rosenberg's work, and I trust his opinions. But I watched "Smallville" and was horrified by the Matthew Shepard-like plot twist that played a main part in the show ("A Hero in the Making," review of "Smallville" premiere by Rosenberg, Oct. 16). Although I'm sure the producers didn't mean to reference the Matthew Shepard tragedy, the fact that Mr. Shepard was described as looking like a scarecrow when he was found makes the connection unavoidable. I also found the fact that Lana and Clark laugh at the idea that Clark would be brooding over a guy--that Clark might be gay--distasteful because it's another example of the entertainment industry finding the idea that a teen could be gay a big joke.

Tom Welling's first memory on the set of "Smallville" nine years ago was a chance meeting with a young production assistant named Chris Petry. The actor waved at Petry, who returned the greeting. Almost a decade later, Petry is all grown up and now serves as one of the show's producers and occasionally directs. As for Welling, well, he is still almost Superman. "The two of us were just sitting around the other day and going 'Eh, not too bad. Not too bad for nine years. [We've] done all right," said Welling, who is also an executive producer on the show and on the new CW program "Hellcats.

It didn't seem like the right time to be talking to John Schneider about "Smallville." It's Sept. 14, and there were more important things on both our minds. Just minutes before arriving at Schneider's sprawling, two-story English Tudor in Agoura Hills, President Bush had closed an early morning memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., with a prayer for those killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon three days prior.
