A British Superman? Stephen Colbert on why casting British actor Henry Cavill as The Man of Steel is just plain wrong

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!

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
