He would have been a decent choice...
At first I thought the same but you need to get an actor who can be both Superman and CK. Nick Cage, whose eyes would be a dead giveaway when he's CK is a good example - no matter how good the actor is they need a "blend in the crowd" look and Nick Cage does not have that look. (Reeve did and even more so IMO Routh - does). Klein does not. His eyes are too distinctive and would be apparent to any one (even in a world where suspension of disbelief occurs) .
