Superman Cast Revealed!

By now, most people know how the "Superman" cast has panned out. Bryan Singer, director of "X-Men" and "Usual Suspects" is behind the helm. Here are my thoughts.

Brandon Routh is Superman.
Casting an unknown. Good job. He looks the part. I really like what Tom Welling has done w/ the character on Smallville, but I like going into the theater w/o any preconceptions. Let's just hope he doesn't suck like little Anakin Skywalker in Phantom Menace.

Kate Bosworth is Lois Lane.
Interesting. She's a good actress. Pretty. Has yet to really prove herself. But she's blonde. Will she wear a brown wig? A blonde Lois Lane?

Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.
I like it. Spacey was great in Beyond the Sea--its his best performance since American Beauty. He's been in a lot of crap lately, but who better than Bryan Singer, the man who directed him to an Oscar in The Usual Suspects, to bring him back to greatness. Plus, he plays a bad ass bald villain--see Se7en.

Hugh Laurie as Perry White.
Another good choice. Good character actor. He's on that Fox show "House" right now.

James Marsden as...Lois Lane love interest
Cyclops. Pretty boy. I wonder how substantial this part will be...
