Apparently the people at Warner Brothers have passed on as many actors as failed scripts for the new Superman movie due out in
2068 a couple of years. So instead of recruiting Jude Law or Josh Hartnett for the role, the WB has gone the way of American Idol and is having an open casting call for the Man of Steel. They'll be scouting all the beautiful, talented people August 16th in, wait... Baltimore???
It just announced an official nationwide casting call for an actor to portray the Man of Steel in the upcoming, shrouded-in-secrecy Superman Returns project. The studio is looking for an actor in his "late 20's, tall, handsome," with chiseled good looks, among other qualifications. Auditions in the region will be held the week of August 16 in Baltimore by appointment only. Anyone interested in auditioning should send either a headshot and resume, a model card, or an individual photograph of him or herself to: Pat Moran and Assoc., 3500 Boston St., Suite 425, Baltimore, Md 21224.
Hmmm. Tall? Check. Handsome? Check. Chiseled good looks? Check plus. I wonder if they would consider my exceptional, incredibly attractive computer skills as "among other qualifications." I could see it now..."My god, the youhavebadtasteinmusic server is down... where in the hell is Superman??? We need to make people stop attending shitty concerts!"
