According to the trades of Variety, Australian actor Russell Crowe is near signing on for Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel. Reportedly tapped to portray Superman's Kryptonian father 'Jor-El,' the sites states verbatim:
Christopher Nolan had all along been seeking an A-list thesp for Jor-El, Superman’s biological father, since agreeing to godfather the franchise reboot “Man of Steel” for Warner Bros. He’s got his man, and it’s Russell Crowe. With production set to start next month, Jor-El was one of the last roles to cast -- though they're still looking for a big name to play Superman’s biological mother, Lara.
I hope they get Russell Crowe. He's a great actor. My favorite movie I've ever seen him in was 3:10 to Yuma. Great western with non-stop action. He plays a mean dude that does things his way, but he still maintains his own personal code of honor and conduct. Loved the ending of this movie. The look in Crowe's face at the end is priceless.
He'd make a great Jor-El!
