All-Star Superman DTV Voice Cast Announced

James Danton is Clark Kent/Superman, Christina Hendricks is Lois, Anthony LaPagila is Lex. Ed Asner is Perry White. I'm excited for this...and it's going to be interesting to see what parts of the opus they take and what is left out.

How can you NOT love Ed Asner as Perry White?

How can you not love Ed Asner as basically anything? LOL. Interesting cast...looks like Andrea Romano did a hell of a job this time around, not that she hasn't in the previous installments. I especially like Hendricks as Lois.

LaPagila as Luthor should be good, he has the right kind of voice. still can't beat Clancy Brown though.

How'd you end up with Mike Danton from James Denton? The former is apparently a college hockey player jailed for conspiracy to commit murder(!).

Yeah sorry James Danton...and I ended up with him because I obviously typed the wrong name.

Whoa! That means Ed Asner will have now played both J. Jonah Jameson and Perry White! My mind is officially boggled. Are we in the Amalgam Universe now?

No idea who James Denton is. I know who Hendricks is, but I can't recall her voice offhand. LaPaglia... he's the guy from Without a Trace? I don't really hear him as Luthor, but we'll see.

I love how Romano and/or Timm are always poaching Joss Whedon's actors. As I recall, some episodes of JLU weren't far off being Firefly reunions.

So what with his having played Lou Grant, he is now THE go-to actor for newspapermen. Unless JK Simmons plays Perry in the next DTV movie.

No idea who James Denton is. I know who Hendricks is, but I can't recall her voice offhand.
Denton is from Desperate Housewives, where his onscreen wife is former Lois Teri Hatcher. I think his voice would be pretty apt for Superman.

Hendricks is in Mad Men, oppposite Jon Hamm, who's played Lex Luthor on SNL and tops many a fan-wish list for Superman himself; the show also features Iron Man 2's Howard Stark aka John Slattery and X-Men First Class's Emma Frost, January Jones.

Must admit, I can't imagine Lois talking with Christina's flirty voice but perhaps there's more to her than MM's voluptuous Joan. And if there's not - who cares. Joan is more than enough for me.

Not to mention that Ed just voiced Granny Goodness in "Superman/Batman:Apocalypse" as well, so versatile.

Re: All-Star Superman DTV Voice Cast Announced

He was Granny back in the animated shows as well.

The trick is how to convince Ed to play Granny Goodness in a live Movie/TV scenario?

Why have the lad as Perry when he could be Lou Grant?

^ Given that Lou Grant, like many a show, owes its origins to Happy Days, I wish to point out that I still think Ron Howard would have made a great Jimmy Olsen once upon a time.

Uhh, wha? Lou Grant was spun off from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, the other '70s sitcom that spawned multiple spinoffs. (Well, one of the two others -- All in the Family spawned several of its own.)

And get this -- Asner's Mary Tyler Moore Show co-star Ted Knight played Perry White in Filmation's 1966 Superman animated series! (As well as playing Commissioner Gordon and various villains in Filmation's '68 Batman series and narrating a season of Superfriends. Sadly, I don't think Ted Knight ever did the voice of the Ted Knight Starman.)

That would have made a very amusing credit
Ted Knight as Ted Knight

At least we got him as Carter Winston.
