Superman film adding “Law & Order” vet Chris Meloni


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It only seems right that a Superman movie would cast an actor best known for his work on a show called “Law & Order.”

Christopher Meloni, who left “Special Victims Unit” after 12 seasons, reportedly is circling an unidentified part in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” according to THR. Sources tell the trade Meloni would “shoot scenes with Henry Cavill, the actor who plays Superman and Clark Kent” in the film.

Earlier in the, we learned that Julia Ormond had been cast as Superman’s Kryptonian mother. She and Meloni would join a cast that already includes Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, and Amy Adams.

THR says “Man of Steel” will film in the fall. It’s targeting a December 2012 release date.
