It was Langella's idea to rework Perry's character and play him as the strong, silent type:

"With Bryan's blessing, my Perry White will be very different than the previous ones," said Langella.

"I couldn't play a small man who barks out orders while he's chomping on his cigar. It's physically wrong for me. I play Perry as the strong, quiet type."
