The Friday File #32 - Henry Cavill
With the new Superman movie out it's only fair that we take a look at the newest Superman to grace our screens - Henry Cavill. I first saw him in the Count of Monte Cristo, then other films followed Tristan & Isolde and of course Stardust. But it was the TV series The Tudors that brought him international fame and indeed the American fame that is needed to be taken seriously in Hollywood.
He would have also been Edward Cullen in the Twilight films as he was who Stephanie Meyer had wanted in the role apparently. By the time filming came around he was too old for the role and the part went to Robert Pattinson. He also lost out to Pattinson again over the part of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He was also shortlisted alongside Daniel Craig to play James Bond for Casino Royale. They went with Daniel Craig but it looks likely that Cavill could replace Craig in years to come possibly. He also has been linked to be cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptations.
