I've seen Bomer on Tru Calling and Chuck. He looks too short and skinny to be Supes.
Bomer is half an inch shy of six feet, which makes him almost the same height as Lois & Clark's Dean Cain and the syndicated Superboy's John Haymes-Newton and Gerard Christopher. Kirk Alyn and George Reeves were 6'1". And Bomer could easily enough bulk up for the role, as Christopher Reeve did.

Superman is canonically 6'3", as are Tom Welling and Brandon Routh (and Patrick Warburton, who played Superman in some Jerry Seinfeld short films). Christopher Reeve was 6'4".
