Because all actors who'd be good in the role should be considered, not just Spider-Man flunkies.

I wouldn't even mind if Jimmy discovered that Clark is Superman early on and proves his friendship and character by not capatilizing on such a big story, instead helping Superman/Clark keep his cover.

Default Jimmy Olsen???

I've seen no mention of Jimmy. No casting details ... nothing. Do you think it's possible that they've decided to eliminate the character?

Well theres no Lana or lex either. I doubt they are getting rid of them. I think they may be cast already, and will announce accordingly. I mean they filmed the young smallville scenes already....so i guess Clark grew up without friends? Lol.....I think we should just wait and see, we have a long way to go before we start worrying

I think we have to keep in mind that they're probably still in the process of casting. The film is 2 years away and they still have time to cast Olsen, Lana and Lex. Heck they only recently added Fishburne as Perry White ,and Nolan is still adding actors to TDKR cast . I remember hearing months ago that Thomas Dekker was up for the part though who knows how much of that was true .

He looks older though, could easily pass as 18 which would make him an up-and-coming Planet intern. I still remember that story of Jimmy leaving home, interning, and almost jumping (?) before Superman 'saves' him. Secret Origins, I think...

I think Chris Colfer is great on Glee, but I'll believe he's capable of playing a straight role when I see him do it. He's very effeminate.

Default Jimmy

Is there going to be a Jimmy
Olsen in this film or not?!!! It's been months since I initially raised this question. Has anyone heard anything? I think this film will have a huge hole in it if they eliminate the character.

I feel the story takes place before Clark works at the daily planet, and even before Jimmy works there as-well. From the evidence, they look to be taking this story way back, kinda the lost years that were never told on film, before Superman becomes the Clark we know of today.

IMO Jimmy will be in the sequel.

What you say makes sense... And I'm very sad to say so...

Professor Hamilton was cast back in the summer but only announced recently, maybe it's the same case with Jimmy. Who knows who might be in the movie that hasn't been announced yet.

If he's not in it, no big deal to me. It's not absolutely necessary for him to be at the Daily Planet before Clark is hired.

This could've been done with Lex as well. Especially if it's a small part.

Same. But it'd be a nice surprise if they do announce him
