The thing about the Clark/Superman nobody-sees-through-the-disguise-thing is, we, the audience, know it, of course. But why would anyone in-universe think Superman had a secret identity? He's not wearing a mask.

And so, that journalist with the glasses looks a lot like Superman. But could it be him? Seriously, though, why would Superman, of all people, work at a newspaper. That's like, I don't know, seeing someone who looks like Matt Damon working in an office. Yeah, he looks like him, but there's no way. Maybe some even think about it enough to tell him "Hey, you know, you look a lot like Matt Damon", but he just says: "Yeah, I get that a lot. Even thought about doing some look-alike appearances, but I got little enough leisure time as it is."
But in virtually all Superman incarnations, it's only Lois who finds out that Superman and Clark Kent are the same person. How come her and not anybody else?
Lana Lang, Pete Ross, Batman, everybody in the 30th century.

Not to mention Ma and Pa Kent, who are the first to know.

Well any straight man who thought about how she'd look against it?

Re-arrange that scene with Ben Browder or Ryan Reynolds as Jessica Alba, and I can tell you, I'd be studying every part of that frame and imagining different positions against it

The real question is who should play Steve Lombard? John Goodman is the obvious choice, but I'm willing to entertain other suggestions.

Neither was Captain Lochley in Lois and Clark? That's my only experience with Cat Grant outside of the movie.

Nice try guys, but what's going on on page 245 (the way I have it configured) is still much more interesting.

Googled Steve Lombard...=John Goodman???? From the Google Images, I can definitely get on board with Bradley Cooper for this part. Seth Rogan, actually might work too, "Looks-wise"

NOTE: I have no knowledge of the character's personality, so can't vouch for their ability to act the part.

You have looked into the eyes of Jessica Alba, you are now straight.

He showed up in the 70s as a jock turned sportscaster. Back then drawn as a goodlooking guy but kind of dumb. Sort of a Sam Malone ( Ted Danson on Cheers) type. Later versions had him as a fatter and cruder ex-jock type.

I was just thinking someone who's big and beefy and can do affably mean (e.g., Big Lebowski), although looking at a few dudes, we could possibly do better. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Vince Vaughn have been floated. Yeah, I could see it.

He rocks a moustache, but he's a little too mousy.
