I wouldn't be surprised if it was Hamm. He'd be good in the role. I'd rather they get Routh back though.

I'm curious...why do you guys think he was wrong for the part?
Routh just didn't look or sound like Superman to me. His face is better suited to, say, Sherlock Holmes or Spock. He just looks out of place in the tights and cape. And his voice is just too nasal.
Thank you! Not enough people realize that an actor's voice is as important as any other item in his toolbox. Routh's Superman sounded too "Clark" to me.

^ I thought (and still think) that Routh sounds exactly like Tom Cruise. Looks a bit like him too, if about a foot taller.

I am glad.

[edit] Nolan could cast Tom Hardy 5'10"(11") (Inception, Marie Antoinette, ST NEM )

Re: Casting Superman?

Off topic but I see clips from that other comic-based movie Routh is starring in have turned up online. Hope it gives the guy a break - I think he deserves it.

Too brief to get any real sense of him as Superman (since there are no closeups or dialogue of Superman in either commercial), but he looks good as Clark.

Re: Casting Superman?

^ though he seems to overact horribly, though that was likely the direction.

When did Superman start shilling toyotas??

I wonder if Routh auditioned for Spock. He would've been perfect!

He has the face for it, but not the voice.

Not more perfect than Quinto. Not possible.

Routh is too stiff. Contrary to popular opinion, the last thing you want w/Spock is a stiff actor.
