Considering Jimmy is probably the only one who would be yelled at, yes. But again, I'm not using that as a reason for not casting a black actor.

Thanks for response. I know you are not. I was just curious if anyone else saw it that way.

Apart from Superman, Lois and Lex I'm not too bothered about the ethnicity of any of the other characters.

I don't see it that way at all. Perry yells at everybody. Has anyone ever expressed a feeling of racism when he yells - and makes racist jokes - at a young, black Foreman on House?

I don't see it that way either, I'm just saying a certain part of the population will.

Anyone like Logan Lerman for Olsen? It would remind me of season 1 Lois and Clark version with a slight likeness between the up and comer Olsen, and reporter Kent. I thought it was cool, and didn't think a replacement was necessary even though Whalin did own the part.

Logan Lerman is a good suggestion, but he looks to have a lot on his plate in the near future- he has the leads in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and "The Only Living Boy in New York" in the year ahead.

No news today, but a quick rumor blurb from empire forum. Guess it's half something meh.

Quote:

Apparently a tweet from Scott Davis of associatedcontent.com reveals that Jimmy Olsen has been cast in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel"

It seems actor Thomas Dekker will be the new Jimmy Olsen. He is most known for his television series work on "Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles" as John Connor.

The news will likely be reported officially within the coming week.

I think Zach Gilford would nail the part of Olsen, but people would say he's the same age as Cavill (though he looks younger than him)

I could live with it but he's a little more edgy than I'd like...I want a more nerdy Jimmy for classic Olsen craziness. And a real ginger.

As for racial changes for the characters, it would fine for Perry, Steve Lombard, Cat Grant, or Pete Ross (which they did already), but Jimmy is pretty clearly Irish-American lily-white.

I thought he was wearing eyeliner but to be honest he just has really thick and long eyelashes. Kinda like me.

Never thought of him. I f'n love Saracen; for that matter, cast anyone from that show and I'm with them. Best written and acted show on television.

I could see it. Yeah, he's not my first choice either, but he does at least look boyish and since Jimmy isn't known for really being manly anyway I could deal with it. Considering they're modernizing things his look will probably fit .
