EXCLUSIVE: After a 10-season run as the super-hero-in-training Clark Kent in the CW series Smallville, Tom Welling is taking a break from TV and transitioning to features. He’s just landed a co-starring role in Parkland, the Exclusive Media feature that is being directed by Peter Landesman. He joins Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, and Billy Bob Thornton in the ensemble drama about the hours following the assassination of JFK in Parkland Hospital. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are producing with Bill Paxton. Open Road is in talks to distribute domestically in the fall, around the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination. Welling is repped by WME.
