Executive summary: Superman in Superman Returns

Nicolas Cage, James Caviezel, Brendan Fraser, Josh Hartnett, Martin Henderson, Ashton Kutcher, Jude Law, Keanu Reeves, and Smallville's Superboy Tom Welling were all mentioned for the part, but a virtual unknown, Brandon Routh, starred as DC's Man of Steel in the 2006 flop Superman Returns.

In high school, Routh was in swing choir and played the piano and trumpet. He has appeared in numerous amateur stage productions in Iowa, and briefly attended college before deciding to try acting as a career. His first professional role was a 1999 episode of a long-gone sit-com, Odd Man Out. Sharp-eyed viewers may remember Routh from a short stint on One Life to Live, and MTV's late-night soap opera Undressed. He also appeared in single episodes of The Gilmore Girls, Cold Case, and Will & Grace.
