Earlier this week, Variety reported that Richard Schiff (IMDb) had joined the cast of Man of Steel as Dr. Emil Hamilton, a scientist who’s been both an ally and a villain of Superman in previous animated and comic book incarnations (and was most recently portrayed in live action by Battlestar Galactica vet Alessandro Juliani on several Smallville episodes).
Schiff’s casting promises a science angle, too, which is entirely welcome, along with adding yet another familiar face from Superman mythology to one of the most amazing casts we’ve ever seen for a superhero movie.
Jami Philbrick from I Am Rogue recently interviewed Mr. Schiff, who says he’s filmed scenes with Meloni and our new Lois Lane, Amy Adams (IMDB). He’ll also share a scene with Superman himself, Henry Cavill (IMDb).
Man of Steel soars on June 14, 2013! And that’s entirely too far away.
