He's Superman's dad...
Russell Crowe appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where he talked about playing Jor-El in Man of Steel. He told a story about revealing the news to his son.
He said: "It's a reboot of the franchise with Zack Snyder who did the 300 film, with a young English fellow called Henry Cavill as Superman or Kal-El as I call him because he's my son. Yeah, times have changed, I'm Superman's dad. I said to my son Charlie, 'I'm going to be Superman's dad in the movie, so if I'm Superman's dad what does that make you?' and he got really excited and said 'Superman's brother?'"
They then showed off the action figure of Crowe, which he called "ridiculous".
The film will be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX on June 14. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Michael Kelly, Harry Lennix and Richard Schiff.
Here's a synopsis: In the film, a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
