Seems like an honest-to-God nice kid. Why some hate on him I don't get. But not so much Jimmy Olsen. I'd still say go for Kieran Culkin personally.

Along the same lines - Justin Timberlake for Jimmy Olsen!

with anton i think they could at least try to give him reddish hair. if that doesn't work, i still think he's an awesome actor, much better than this dekker. it makes sense that not many gingers are being suggested as they're like .3 percent of the population or something, and i'd still want someone whos good for the role, not just someone who looks the part. dekker is neither, imo.

LOL that's about as bad as the pic people use against Tom Welling.



Tried to find a more normal pic of him to be more fair lol.



Not my first choice, but I could come around to it. His personal gothish emoish whatever you call it style has nothing to do with how he'd look on film.

That was the first photo released of him when SV was about to premiere. Crazy.

It's kind of hit or miss. He was alright in some episodes of Heroes, and T:SCC I think.

Dekker plays geeky pretty well, though he hasn't done it for a decade or so.

He kind of reminds me of a younger version of Jimmy from All-Star Superman.

That role is much more open for interpretation. That's why on L&C people liked both versions of Jimmy pretty equally, though they had a distinct look.

Haven't seen Shameless (though I've heard great things), but I have to agree that kid totally looks the part.

But if it's Dekker, I'd be totally fine with that. I really liked him on Heroes.

Just realized that Dekker is in Cinema Verite which also stars Diane Lane. Maybe there is a link there.

But just think at how well the Bieber boy will bring in teenage kids to the theaters....even though it will most definitely alienate a few of the straight-thinking folk.

It still pisses me off that my girlfriend used to go out with a kid who looked EXACTLY like him. How her friends put it,'a major step down from the Bieber twin,to Cheryl Cole's geeky cousin'. I hate her friends.
