I can imagine Tim trying to hold it together and going: Make it work, make it work!




I wish they for once would cast a good actor as superman, but Iīm not holding my breath. One thing about this movie that makes me excited, though, is that Christopher Meloni is gonna be in it! (yep, still going though my OZ phase :D)

Christopher Meloni In Superman 'Man Of Steel':
'Law & Order: SVU' Star Joining Film

First Posted: 6/25/11 08:51 AM ET Updated: 7/19/11 10:49 AM ET




Considered to be a sort of police superhero by devoted fans of his long run on "Law & Order: SVU," Christopher Meloni is about to join up with the ultimate crime fighter.

Meloni, the former "SVU" star who announced that he was leaving this spring after 12 seasons when contract negotiations went south, is on the verge of signing on to Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, "Man of Steel," Deadline reports. According to The Hollywood Reporter,  Meloni will shoot scenes with Henry Cavill, Superman himself.

Along with Julia Ormond, who signed on earlier this week to play Superman's Kryptonian birth mother Lara Lor-Van, Meloni joins an all-star cast that, aside from Cavill, includes Russell Crowe as Kryptonian dad Jor-El, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Pa and Ma Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Michael Shannon as baddie General Zod.

It may make sense, given his last decade-plus as a detective on "SVU," to cast Meloni as some sort of law enforcement agent, but he's done more than just find rapists on television in his career. He's had a number of movie roles, including in "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" and "Nights in Rodanthe," and he can most certainly do comedy: Meloni recently starred and directed the National Lampoon  film, "Dirty Movie," and, perhaps more memorably, had a brilliant turn as a sweater-fondling (NOT cheddar-fonduing) camp cook in "Wet Hot American Summer."

And wouldn't be hilarious to see him play Jimmy Olson?

UPDATE: Vulture  reports that Meloni will be playing a general (not Zod, of course) in the film; whether that makes him a good or bad guy remains to be seen. It may be difficult given their similar ages, but he COULD be playing General Sam Lane, father of Amy Adams' Lois. Then again, Lane is an ally of Lex Luthor, the chief rival to Superman who WON'T be in this new movie (at least as the main villain), so that may be completely off, as well.

I've seen Jane Eyre now, and actually forgot to take much notice of the guy  :D
I guess he did alright, but I prefer Michael Fassbender.

Haha, the joke's on both of us! Henry Cavill was NOT Rochester in Jane Eyre. He was in the Tudors recently. Rochester was played by . . . Michael Fassbender!!!

Oh.........I thought Henry Cavill was the guy who plays Mason in Jane Eyre because thatīs the guy who I thought looked most like him. :laugh:
Yes, Michael Fassbender plays Mr Rochester, and does it well. I prefer the mini series with Toby Stephens, but Fassbender did a good job too.

And Henry Cavill...then I still havenīt seen him in anything, I guess :) ;)
