I feel your pain, man. Every girl I've ever dated had at least one b**chy, annoying friend who was always trying to convince her she could do better.

Thomas Dekker is a perfectly respectable choice for Jimmy Olsen. I could see him being a bit more of a "cool geek" like Jimmy's recent appearances in All Star Superman or Nick Spencer's Jimmy Olsen story from Action Comics, rather than the classic nerdy goofball. But I think that's a good thing.

Yeah, the geeks are much cooler these days than they were back when Supes first broke onto the scene. A cooler (but still nerdy) Jimmy Olsen could really work. Kind of like, he does pretty well with the ladies, but he still plays Warcraft and has a comic book collection.

I am not ready to believe the Thomas Dekker rumour yet.

I think it would be good if Jimmy is still very much a dork, not all suave and cool and into dorky things because it's the trend. I wouldn't like the movie Jimmy to be played by this "cool" actor who makes all the right geeky references.

I still would like Callan McAuliffe for the role because he does have that genuinely geeky kind of demeanour about him:

I guess stuff like "Big Bang Theory" but it's not like the guys on that show are suddenly all cool and aren't awkward around women. But I guess sci-fi and fantasy etc. aren't considered as "dorky" and are more mainstream.

To be cool and a geek at the same time is to be like The Inbetweeners. The Big Bang Theory is just a cliche view of geekery and its insulting.

Yeah, and Cavill does look a little like All-Star Superman's Superman. Too bad Lois looked like Bosworth in one of the pictures.

I see what you are saying. If they went with that angle, the casting would actually make sense. Though it's just internet rumor at this point.

They need to give Cameron an audition, he's good on Shameless and has the best Jimmy look.

Cameron may be a ginger and look the part, but I don't really see the Jimmy personality.

Even if Jimmy isn't a full-on nerd there, he is never really completely cool. In the animated series he is still clumsy and awkward and a bit different from the norm.

He should be a little bit nerdy (as in smart) in the movie, but still capable and resourceful when the situation calls for it.

I liked how in the Supergirl #54 we see some of that:

I never saw Jimmy as this geek or nerd or anything, he's just a good-hearted, honest young guy in a career that usually has tough, conniving reporters trying to break a story.
Even in Jimmy's off time, he manages to have a social life, he's not some loser who stays at home on WoW or something.

It's funny how there's a stigma to Jimmy being a little bit of a nerd, as if that is a negative connotation, where if he was smart or had some geeky interests (like, photography) it would mean he wouldn't have a social life or automatically plays WoW. He can have geeky interests and still have a social life. He just shouldn't be conventional.

I want Jimmy to kick butt and not have to worry about his mascara or eyeliner.
So no way to Monaghan and the other similar ones.

And if you think about it, you'd probably have to be pretty skilled to be able to keep up with Lois and be Superman's pal when you're not Batman.
