    Thumbs up Favorite actor portrayals in Superman Universe

    I thought this might be interesting to choose you favorite actors that
    have done the best job for characters in the Superman Universe.

    Superman: Christopher Reeve
    Clark Kent: Tom Welling
    Lois Lane: Terri Hatcher
    Lex Luthor: Kevin Spacey
    Perry White: Lane Smith
    Jimmy Olsen: Justin Whalin
    Jonathon Kent: John Schneider
    Martha Kent: Annette O'Toole
    Lana Lang: Annette O'Toole
    Supergirl: Helen Slater

    I figure that these characters were portrayed by more than one
    actor. I wouldn't count characters like Chloe Sullivan and Pete
    Ross, etc. If you can come up with a few more...feel free to
    add them to the list.

    I agree with your choice of Michael Landes as Jimmy Olsen. I really liked him on LnC while he was cast, poor guy had to leave because he was better (or almost the same) looking than Dean Cain's Clark Kent. I, however, didn't think John was very Luthor-like. To be honest, I thought he was more of a wimp, chickening out of situations at last minute.

    I like Michael Rosenbaum's portrayal of Lex and is my favorite of the bunch. The rest is pretty straight forward...

    Superman: Christopher Reeve
    Clark Kent: Tom Welling
    Jonathan Kent: John Schneider
    Martha Kent: Annette O' Toole
    Lois Lane: Erica Durance
    Supergirl: Laura Vandervoort
    Perry White: Michael McKean
    Lana Lang: Kristin Kreuk
    Brainiac: James Marsters
    Jor-El: Terence Stamp

    and of course:

    Lex Luthor: Michael Rosenbaum
    Jimmy Olsen: Michael Landes

    Probably. A lot of us are attached to TW's portrayal of Clark Kent as we have seen him 'grow' from a young Clark. Now Dean Cain's portrayal of Clark Kent was very mature and in his later stages. Some might prefer Dean to TW's (7 seasons worth of passive Clark) but we still like Tom Welling as Clark Kent.

    I liked him as the reporter Clark Kent and it was the first time I'd ever seen him not portrayed as a bumbling fool in that persona, but I always had a problem with his stature - he was just too short to play the Man of Steel!

    Totals for 1-17-09

    I should vote for Marlon Brando as Jor-El since I missed him at the beginning. Here
    are the totals as of this moment. I only counted the first name you wrote down
    for each character:

    Superman: Christopher Reeve - 9 Dean Cain - 2
    Clark Kent: Tom Welling - 10 Dean Cain - 1
    Lois Lane: Erica Durance - 5 Terri Hatcher - 3
    Margot Kidder - 1 Dana Delaney - 1
    Lex Luthor: Michael Rosenbaum - 7 Kevin Spacey - 1
    John Shea - 1 James Marsters - 1(?)
    Perry White: Lane Smith - 8 Michael McKean - 1
    Jimmy Olsen: Michael Landes - 2 Aaron Ashmore - 2
    Mark McClure - 2 Justin Whalin - 1
    Jonathon Kent: John Schneider - 9
    Martha Kent: Annette O'Toole - 8
    Lana Lang: Annette O'Toole - 6 Kristin Kreuk - 3
    Supergirl: Helen Slater - 6 Laura Vandervoort - 2
    Brainiac: James Marsters - 5
    Jor-El: Terrance Stamp - 3 Marlon Brando - 2
    Tom Welling - 1(?)

    There were 11 voters when I tallied these numbers. Thank you.
