During virtually every Immortals interview that he does, Henry Cavill is asked about his role of Superman in Man of Steel. What follows are a couple of excerpts.
When Henry Cavill had been cast as an extra in the Russell Crowe film Proof of Life, he decided to take advantage of the situation by asking the actor who would someday play his Kryptonian father, Jor-El, a question.
“I had been doing school plays and so I walked up to Russell and I asked him, ‘What’s it like to be an actor?’” Cavill revealed to Contact Music. “And he said, ‘Well, you know, it’s great. Sometimes they treat you great, sometimes they don’t. And the money’s pretty good, too.’ And then everyone came running up and I waved and said, ‘Quick, run!’, because they were all looking for autographs. Two days later I got a signed picture of him in Gladiator saying, ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’… At the end of that journey of a thousan miles, that first journey, he’s there as well.”
