Liam Neeson* as Jor-El

*What? He seems to be Hollywood's go-to guy for the "mentor to the young hero" roles these days.
I know. He's replaced the gap that was left when Connery retired, IMHO. Must be a Celtic thing or something.

Although Anthony Hopkins is giving him a run for his money. THE MASK OF ZORRO, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II, THE WOLFMAN, THOR, etc.
True. Connery was originally meant to be in Zorro and also the first choice to voice Aslan in the Narnia series. They must both have clapped their hands and jumped for joy when he retired.

Of course, Hopkins is also a Celt (Welsh). But hey, casting directors, what about giving Gabriel Byrne or Timothy Dalton a look-in too?!
