This is a continuation thread, the old thread is [split]313499[/split]
We have casting threads for the Superman and the two main supporting characters (Lois and Lex) why not a thread for all the other members of Superman's cast? I have some young ideas:
Perry White - Beau Bridges
Johnathan Kent - Chris Cooper
Jor-El - Tim Daly
Lana Lang - JoAnna Garcia
And my picks for Zod and Ursa:
Zod - Vincent Cassel
Ursa - Olga Kurylenko
My choices that were in the last thread:
Superman/Clark Kent - Henry Cavill
Lois Lane - Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Lex Luthor - Joaquin Phoenix
Jor El - Jon Hamm
Lara - Lena Headey
Jonathan Kent - Kurt Russell
Martha Kent - Melissa Leo
Perry White - Tom Selleck
Jimmy Olsen - Joseph Mazzello
Brainiac - Paul Betanny
that was a pretty decent cast...I'd change a few things up but not much
i just had this realization
schyuler fisk for lana lang
Besides MEW... that's fantastic
JG-L is most likely in TDKR, so he's out for Jimmy(thank the movie gods)
Would people really want a Jimmy Olsen thats two years older then their Superman?
Sadly, some people do.
He looks younger then Cavil. So if he looks younger, I don't see a problem. But I made this a while back before I realized he was casted in TDKR so I haven't changed it.
He really doesn't look any younger than Cavill... if anything, they look the same age, which still doesn't work for me.
My opinion, he does. He looks very young to me. So it works for me...
He looks too old for Jimmy. He looks the same age, no younger than Cavill. Just doesn't work.
How old do you think Jimmy is suppose to be?
I like Shawn Ashmore as a Jimmy Olsen direction. I think he looks the part to a tee and doesn't come off as outrageously boyish but yet, commanding as a photographer for the Daily Planet.
Jimmy should be intern age aka 19-21/22 at most. JG-L is way too old for that age range.
Bleh no thanks. Bland Iceman plus bland twin brother as Jimmy in Smallville = no.
Lois Lane: Rachel McAdams
Lex Luthor: Joaquin Phoenix
Pa Kent: Bruce Greenwood
Ma Kent: Geena Davis
Jimmy Olsen: Anton Yelchin
Zod: Joe Manganiello or Gerard Butler
Brainiac: Keanu Reeves
Perry White: John Goodman
Parasite: Michael Berryman
Though a great actor, I think most people can agree that Joseph Gordon Levitt as Jimmy is a bad idea. Unless you're completely, utterly insane.
Superman: Cavill (duh)
Lois Lane: Emily Blunt
Lex Luthor: Jon Hamm
Pa Kent: Mark Harmon
Ma Kent: Melissa Leo
Jimmy Olsen: Anton Yelchin
Brainiac: Adrien Brody
Perry White: Dan Lauria
Metallo: Logan Marshall-Green
Lana Lang: Amanda Righetti
I never get why people try to cast previous Supermen as one of his fathers(ex. Dean Cain[L+C] or Mark Harmon[JL:COTE] as Jor-El or Jonathan Kent. Seriously, if Christopher Reeve was still alive, people would have cast him too, despite being a legend as Superman.
well usually supermans look similar. they should have the characteristics of tall, black hair, blue eyes, good looking. fathers and sons can look alike too. so by having the previous supermans, you kind of get that similar look/feel like a father son should have. plus, it's a nice homage to see them again without them portraying superman. in the superman animated series, you had jor el looking a bit like superman. christopher reeve's look a lot like brandon routh, so it would have been cool to see christopher reeve be jor el instead of marlon brando. it's almost like a passing of the torch type deal. but thats just my take on it.
Here's a cast that is a mix of what I like and what I think is very likely
Lois Lane-Olivia Wilde
Jimmy Olson-Dustin Milligan
Lex Luthor-Patric Wilson
General Zod-David Boreanaz
Cat Grant-Alice Eve
Mercy Graves-Jaime Chung
the to be continued
Well, for what it's worth, I didn't even know that Harmon did a voice in JL:COTE (I don't watch many cartoons). Also, I wouldn't consider someone voice-acting a part in the same category as someone who physically played it onscreen. I haven't seen anyone suggesting Dean Cain for anything on here.
