Hot Tea Tuesday | Henry Cavill
Hot Tea Tuesday – a lil’ bit of eye-candy for your Tuesday lunchtime. This week, actor Henry Cavill.
This week, we take a look at the latest actor to take on the Superman role, the upcoming Man Of Steel Henry Cavill…
With roles in The Count of Monte Cristo, The Tudors and the Immortals, Henry Cavill has been on the brink of superstardom for quite a while now but next year should see him hit the bigtime starring as Superman in the latest comic book franchise.
Cavill was Stephanie Meyer’s first choice to play Edward in the adaptation of Twilight, she’s quoted as saying he was “perfect” for the role but by the time the film was being cast, he was 25-years old and no longer looked the part of a 17-year old. Which never stopped the casting directors of Beverly Hills 90210 back in the day. Just sayin’.
He also lost out on the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to Robert Pattinson.
In the December 2005 edition of Empire Magazine, Henry was dubbed “…the most unlucky man in Hollywood” after losing out on the Twilight role and the part of James Bond in Casino Royale (the role went to Daniel Craig as the producers thought Cavill was too young). Hopefully, that luck’s about to change.
In being cast as Superman in Man of Steel, he becomes the third British actor to play the lead role in reboot of a successful screen adaptation of an American comic book series. Before him, Christian Bale was cast as Batman, and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. And in our opinion, the hottest of the three.
Man of Steel is set to be a bit of an auld blockbuster with a starstudded cast including Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White, Russell Crowe (one of Cavill’s favourite actors) as Jor-El and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane playing Clark’s parents.
Fingers crossed our Henry doesn’t fall foul of the Superman curse and we get to see a lot more of him in 2013. Especially in tight-fitting costumes.
