Russell Crowe To Play Jor-El In Snyder's 'Man of Steel'

Variety is reporting that Zack Snyder has found Superman's father Jor-El.  Russell Crowe will be sending his only son to Earth in the Warner Brothers reboot Man of Steel.  Russell joins Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon on the movie.  There is no word yet who will play Supe's mom.
I think that Russell is great casting for Jor-El.  He is one that you would believe is the father of Kal-El/Superman.  

Famously, Marlon Brando played Jor-El in the 1977 Superman starring Christopher Reeve.  At the time it was considered crazy for Brando to earn $2 million for two weeks of work.  Though Warner Brothers got plenty of use of the role by placing it in Superman II and the last reboot Superman Returns.

Man of Steel is scheduled to begin filming this summer with a release date of December 2012.

What say you?
