Why wasn’t Joe Manganiello (Alcide) cast as the Man Of Steel in the upcoming Superman reboot? Apparently, director Zack Snyder found him a bit too worldly.

"Really, he was the only other guy I was thinking of to be honest, other than Henry," Snyder said. "But in the end, I think Henry just has this innocence too [as well as the right look]. He has both, which is tricky."

Oh well. Guess you can’t be both the Big Bad Wolf and the knight in shining armor. But if it’s any consolation, Joe, the former is much hotter.
