I am not Superman
The role of Clark Kent/Kal-El has been cast in Superman Returns, set for release in 2006. James Caviezel was rumored to have won the part but, according to this and various movie sites, Brandon will play the last son of Krypton.
No, not me. Brandon Routh, a relative unknown that got his start on One Life to Live and MTV's Undressed. While this seems random, a certain previous Superman also paid his dues on a soap opera. Christopher Reeve was a recurring character on a series called Love of Life before taking the cape.
Here's a picture of Routh, dressed as Clark Kent at a costume party. Does he look the part?
And as long as I'm posting pictures of celebrities in remakes, here's a long-distance shot of Johnny Depp dressed as Willy Wonka in the Tim Burton adaptation due out in October 2005. It appeared yesterday in the Sun ("UK's Biggest Selling Newspaper!").
