Attention, citizens of Earth: if you happen to be an unknown male actor between 28 and 32 years old whose skin absorbs radiation from sunlight in order to synthesize incredible superhuman powers, Warner Bros. is looking for you, because they just might have a job available. One caveat: must believe in truth, justice and the American way. Resumes can be sent to 205 Holy S**t Boulevard c/o of Chris Nolan.
Yes, time to dust off those glamor shots, because according to Deadline, Warner Bros. is holding an open casting call for the role of Superman in the new Nolan produced reboot and they have some pretty strict guidelines, the main one being they want someone young and unknown, which rules out many of the presumed favorites including "Mad Men's" Jon Hamm.
In fact, according the report, even some of the lesser known contenders may not make the final cut because filming for the movie is expected to take place during the summer, which would play hob with the shooting schedules for any TV stars that might want to play the Last Son of Krypton. That means that the candidacies of actors like "True Blood's" Joe Manganiello are in jeopardy as well.
Still, fans backing a specific stud have time to start organizing their viral campaign, because it appears that Nolan and director Zack Snyder are planning to canvas Hollywood for possible leads and are expected to "look at hundreds of young actors before making a decision."
So get that Superman Halloween costume out of your garage and start practicing your Kryptonian, because your big break could be just one short audition away.
