I know you were probably joking but I can totally see him as Perry white. I like it!

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I personally think it's going to be revealed to be Lana Lang, or it will be a totally new character as Jackson Archer suggested. This movie is seemingly looking more and more like a Clark Kent film, with Superman appearing in the second half of the film towards the end even which will be interesting. Clearly going to be a different take which is something I'm looking forward to.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

So we're getting a Spider-man movie with no MJ or JJJ, now a Superman movie with no Lois. Interesting.

My money is also on an all-new female character. I think Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike are too old to be Lana. Jackson Archer was probably right with the Rachel Dawes reference.

Alice Eve is 28 but looks like she could be 20 or so.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Not that accents can't be faked (and Nolan loves his British actors), but when the main contenders are two Brits and a German, is the character is especially likely to be American?

Oh, and please be Rosamund Pike. I've been wanting her to be a bigger star for years.

These days? Yes. Casting directors tend to favor non-American actors these days, I've heard, because too many American actors have plastic-surgeried themselves into uniformity and don't have as much character to their faces.

In do not care about the nationality of any actor. I really think there are much more important and essential criteria to judge whether or not a certain actor is right for a part. I have seen Brits play American and I have seen Americans play Brits before. I have seen Irish play Germans and have seen Italians play Indians and Hindus and Arabs.

I think I read that somewhere not too long ago as well. I can't say I blame them. I get really distracted when I see an obviously altered face. Kind of like Elizabeth Mitchell's nose.

There's also a pretty strong Anglophilia among casting directors in terms of the perception that British actors are better ("classically trained").

Last night I was watching CSI and I noticed that both Marg Helgenberger and Jorja Fox only seemed capable of moving the outer halves of their eyebrows. Botox?

Not sure if she's been brought up before, but Sarah Lancaster (the super adorable and incredibly sexy sister on Chuck) would probably make a good Lois too.
You can count her out. She's gonna be kind of busy...she's pregnant.
Damn Jack, Katty Parry looks pretty hideous in that avatar... ugghh...

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

From Moviehole:

A contact at Warner Bros says that although they “haven’t read the script” they are aware that “Things are changing every day on that movie – things changed a lot when a British Superman was cast. What’s happening here is the filming location may be dictating the casting. Did you notice none of those girls you just mentioned are Americans?”.

That’s right. Good point. Could it mean that tax incentives and Cavill’s casting have persuaded Snyder and the studio to both do the film in the UK with a British or European actress?
