An amazing choice indeed.
Another solid casting choice, I can't wait for this film.
Well, that oscar nomination some people have been mentioning was for playing Ike Turner...
Perry's gonna make Lois eat the cake.
before he sends Lois and Clark on an assignment, will Perry tell them to "believe"??
wow, i would have never thought........i gotta see this script
Why didn't they cast him as Supes??
Cuz Supes isn't an old man with a beer gut?
While I think he's a great actor and will probably ace the role, I'm a little suprised they didn't go for a white actor.
Oh well. Makes a change.
Not sure if I dig this. I've been into every casting thus far.
Langella was inspired, and I don't get that same feeling here. We'll see.
I know he will do great but I honestly would have preferred a white actor. I also don't see him as Perry White. I'm not racist that's just how I see this situation.
Langella was wasted on SR.
Langella's Perry was alot of things, but I don't think inspired was one of them.
What's that now?
Singer decided to basically rework Perry's character completely even though it was a vague sequel. Langella didn't have much to do.
Wow this is movie's cast is phenomenal. Amazing choice for White
I blame Singer and the script, but Langella in SR was not inspired IMO.
It was Langella's idea to rework Perry's character and play him as the strong, silent type:
"With Bryan's blessing, my Perry White will be very different than the previous ones," said Langella.
"I couldn't play a small man who barks out orders while he's chomping on his cigar. It's physically wrong for me. I play Perry as the strong, quiet type."
Fishburne was actually an actor thsat i thought of as perry the last time i watched m:i3. Great casting!
Now just give me anton yelchin as jimmy olsen and jason isaacs as lex luthor!
Langella's still a great actor but either way he was a last minute replacement for Hugh Laurie.
That's who the role was originally meant for. Laurie was definitely inspired casting.
What type of Perry do you think Fishburne will play?
Basically who the families have the rights to is George Taylor, Editor of the Metropolis Daily Star.
All of them, I hope. They all serve a good purpose, even though they'll be small parts.
They can be themselves and still be realistic.
His casting was inspired but his performance was not.
I think Fishburne will be fine.
You think that's news you're reading?
Oh definitely. If Amy carries that cute perkiness over to Lois (or if Lois is more tailored like her Fighter role) -- mix it with Fishburne's quiet but volatile energy and you'd get some GREAT conflict.
And the great cast keeps on growing.
