Default The Official Casting The Superman Reboot Thread

We have casting threads for the Superman and the two main supporting characters (Lois and Lex) why not a thread for all the other members of Superman's cast? I have some young ideas:

Perry White - Beau Bridges


Johnathan Kent - Chris Cooper


Jor-El - Tim Daly


Lana Lang - JoAnna Garcia

Jor-El/Braniac: Eric Bana.......anyone who reads my posts knows that I want Jor-El and Braniac played by the same actor. I believe Braniac should take the form of Jor-El as a homage to his creator, and as a way to mess with Superman's head.

Lex Luthor: Jason Isaacs
Lois Lane: Evangeline Lilly or Eliza Dushku
Perry White: R. Lee Ermey
Jimmy Olsen: Chris Marquette
Jonathan Kent(older): James Garner
Jonathan Kent(younger): Craig Sheffer
Lana Lang: Emmanuelle Chriqui.....a homage to the look of Smallville's Lana, plus I'm not a redhead fan and I think Chriqui is the hottest girl ever.
Dr. Hamiliton: Brent Spiner
Morgan Edge: Robert Englund
Metallo: Sam Rockwell

I'm not sure who I want for Martha Kent or Lara, and I'll post more as they come to me. All are subject to change.

I'm serious when I say that if she was five years older and a tad more experienced, Leighton Meester would be perfect for Lois Lane.

Speaking of Lois, there is a two different ways to cast her. If the reboot goes with a fairly unknown actor such as Bomer or Cavill, a respected, proven, and known actress should be cast, IMO. If the movies goes with an actor that alot the general audience knows of, such as Ryan Reynolds or Josua Jackson, they should feel free to find the best known actress out there for the role of Lois Lane, known or unknown. Like a Rose Byrne type.

I don't really want Lana in this film, just the Kents.

And they should start the film off when Kent is travelling the world as a Journalist.

The Smallville stuff is played out.

I'd be fine without the Smallville stuff, but I do want to see Clark in College.

I don't. There isn't much you can do with him during his college years, besides showing his interest in Journalism.

They can do more with the 'travelling the world' thing.

Imagine the film kicking off with Kent as a Journalist in Africa in the midst of a political war; and him using his powers to save civilians.

Kinda like Birthright and 24:Exile.

you know, the other day I was thinking Greg Kinear would make an amazing John Kent. In every movie his in, he generally plays the all around nice guy. He'd fit that role really well. He's young enough to be young for Superman's arrival, and teen years, and he's old enough to be convincingly aged for the superman adult years.

I like the idea of Kinear as Pa Kent. He's not my first choice, but he is always enjoyable and plays the nice guy well. Good suggestion!

If I'm casting the Routhboot, I'd go for George Dzundza as Perry White. For those who don't know and/or remember, his "claim to fame" is playing the original lead detective in the first season of Law & Order as well as George O'Malley's dad on Grey's Anatomy.

Coincidentially (i.e. I only realized this recently), he was the voice of Perry White on Superman: The Animated Series as well as the direct-to-DVD animated films - small world.




And I'd go for David Morse as Pa Kent if I had any say.

I've always liked David Morse. He always seems like an old-fashioned blue-collared guy. I wouldn't mind seeing him as Pa Kent.
