Agreed. He'd add some great comic relief while also brining depth to a kid who's eager to be a real photographer. I just don't know if he'd be willing to do another large-scale film where he plays the not-so-main character, ala Star Trek and Terminator: Salvation, though I thought he was great in both. Combine those with Charlie Bartlett, and you've got a great Jimmy Olson.

An inflated sense of importance is meaningless to me, and I have nothing but disdain for anyone who actively campaigns to get it.
