Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

The Colbert Report Tip/Wag British Superman and Big Flats beer

British actor Henry Cavill, who has become known in the United States chiefly for his role in Showtimes's provocative and sexy take on a young Richard VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers)
in The Tudors is blowing-up, and is being inked to progressively larger projects all the time.

Six months ago, Jeff Sneider in TheWrap had the news about a film project Cavil's going to be starring in that I hadn't heard anything heard about called The Cold Light of Day.

Cavill will play
"a young American whose family is kidnapped while vacationing in Spain. He's given hours to find them, uncover a government conspiracy and discover the connection between the kidnapping and his father's secrets.

Bruce Willis is playing Cavill's father, while Caroline Goodall recently signed on to play Willis' wife."

And Sigourney Weaver plays the villain!

Then last week came the very surprising news that Cavill has been selected by director Zac Snyder to star as the Man of Steel in a new reboot of Superman slated to hit theaters by Christmas 2012.
At least it was surprising to me and everyone I know with an opinion about the matter.
Me, I'm firmly in the Tom Welling camp, even though I haven't watched Smallville in over two years.

Well, Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report has some thoughts on the curious case of casting one of our British cousins as the American icon.
And he is not amused!

And when are we going to get some accurate casting news about who'll be the new
Wonder Woman on NBC-TV's David E. Kelly production, anyhow?
Can't we all just agree that when you take everything into consideration, Eliza Dushku has more pluses than anyone else and just get started?
But I could live with the adorable
Cobie Smulders, too!
