    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.

    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 thinking Don Meredith with a crueler sense of humor.

    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.

    So Jor-El is going to get in a big throwdown with Zod? Wow, they're not kidding about this being a more action-packed Superman movie.

    Well if you're going to hire Russell Crowe to play Jor-El, you might as well have him fight somebody I guess. :)

    Are they sure it was a scene in the movie? Or did Crowe just start wailing on Michael Shannon while in costume and Snyder just decided to film it?

    /tired joke

    Ah, he must've thought Zod was a Hotel worker if he gave him a tip ;)

    Zod deleted footage of Jor-El reading a poem at an awards ceremony.
