Russell Crowe to Play Jor-El?

The actor from Oz is in negotiations to play Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Superman” reboot called “Man of Steel.” The role was previously played by Marlon Brando in the 1978.

Will Crowe make a good Jor-El? who knows, i’m a fan of his acting but not so much a fan of the man. He definitely has the acting chops to carry the role off and my theory is since they are going after a big name like Crowe that could mean that Jor-El will be a big part of the movie.

Roles have also been offered to Harry Lennix (The Matrix Reloaded) and Connie Nielsen (Gladiator). If cast, Nielsen will play Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara and we have no word which character Lennix will play.
