    Yes, Harrison Ford is playing Alternate Version Clark and Jessica Alba is playing alternate version Lois. People are complaining Jessica Alba is too old to play Lois to Harrison Ford's Superman ;)

    Also, Harrison Ford is too Hispanic looking.

    Fishburne isn't rugged enough to play Perry White. White should be played by Sylvester Stallone or Bruce Willis.

    While I have no problems with the casting of Fishburne, I could get behind the idea of Willis as Perry.

    Willis as Perry White would be awesome.

    You know, my favorite Perry White was Lane Smith in the first year of Lois And Clark - he was entertainingly eccentric.

    The characterization that matched up best with the way the character was portrayed in the comics for forty-odd years was John Hamilton's.

    Yeah, he was good.
    I didn't know (until just now) that he's dead.

    Actually, I would have loved too see a Schwarzenegger Superman in the late 80s, early 90s.

    I'd have a hard time picking between Hamilton, Cooper, and Smith myself. They each brought very different qualities to the character but were all equally good.

    I didn't think much of White in the Reeve Superman movies - the character was written as a sort of pompous buffoon; some of his dialogue was clever but other bits were so clumsy it sounded improvised on-set. And White's barely there in Singer's film.

    Really? I'm sorry, did Langella have any dialogue in that movie? Certainly nothing that mattered.
