Zack Snyder has a lot of his cast set for the Superman reboot Man of Steel. Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are this Earthly parents, Michael Shannon will be General Zod, and Russell Crowe has been offered the role of Jor-El.
Julia Ormond has now been offered the role of Superman’s Kryptonian mama, Lara Lor-Van. Christopher Meloni is set to join the cast as well, but we don’t know which character as of yet. We do know it’s a “major role”, though. My wild guess is Perry White, Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Planet. I think Lex Luthor would be a long shot for him, but you never know.
I’m glad to see Ormond getting back into film (after a few years focusing on television). [Deadline]
