Will Someone Give Poor Henry Cavill a Break Already?
A while back, we noted that The Tudors actor Henry Cavill has spent his entire career being shortlisted, then ultimately passed over, for some of the biggest parts in Hollywood: Superman in a McG-helmed iteration of Superman Returns, James Bond in Casino Royale, the Caped Crusader in Batman Begins...hell, the poor guy was even author Stephanie Meyer's first choice to play Edward in Twilight.
Well, guess what further indignity we can add to the list?
Today in THR, an article about the three finalists for mega-tentpole Green Lantern (Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and Justin Timberlake) included this throwaway line:
Other actors in the early mix included Michael Fassbender, Henry Cavill and Jared Leto.
Seriously, this is getting cruel. Give this poor guy a freaking franchise already, before he spends the bulk of his Pretty Years taping screen tests for sadistic casting directors!
