Basically who the families have the rights to is George Taylor, Editor of the Metropolis Daily Star.

All of them, I hope. They all serve a good purpose, even though they'll be small parts.

They can be themselves and still be realistic.

Langella was inspired, and I don't get that same feeling here. We'll see.
His casting was inspired but his performance was not.

I think Fishburne will be fine.
