It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Soap Opera Man

Silly me.

Given the history of this role, I hope young Mr. Routh keeps a healthy distance from firearms and equestrian sports.

You're talking about the so-called Superman curse, aren't you? Uh, Dean Cain and that guy who plays in Smallville seem to be doin' fine....

Ah, but you see, the curse only works on actors whose surname contains the letters "Reeve." Messrs. Cain and Welling are therefore exempt.

On the other hand, anyone heard anything from John Haymes Newton or Gerard Christopher lately? (How quickly we forget. They were the two actors who played Clark Kent in the syndicated TV series Superboy in the late '80s and early '90s.)
