With Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner officially cast in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Superman: Man Of Steel, there is a possibility they might now shift their focus to casting someone who can act. Deadline reports:
….Legendary Pictures and director Zack Snyder are working on a villain for Superman: Man of Steel. I’m told there’s interest in Michael Shannon. Shannon is coming off a memorable first season in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and he turned in a strong performance in Take Shelter, which Sony Pictures Classics acquired at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Neither the studio nor Shannon’s reps were helpful.
Michael Shannon is my favorite actor and kicks so much ass in everything that he is in, it’s hard to understand why is isn’t cast in everything. He could star in a movie called Michael Shannon Goes To Starbucks Then Turns Around And Goes Back Home Because He Forgot His Wallet, and I’d at least put it at the top of my Netflix queue.
How Michael Shannon wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar for Shotgun Stories (one of my favorite movies) is a tragedy worse than Japan. Mostly because Michael Shannon is playing me in a documentary about my life. You know, if I was white and had two brothers and lived on a farm. What, you think that means I’m jealous of my half-sister and half-brother? Well, one just recently had a baby. She takes it with her to go dress shopping for her junior prom. And I think the other one would eat a car if they put hot sauce on it. So, to answer your question, of course I am!
