Superman – Steve Martin to play Perry White?

SteveMartin3.jpgI’m a big Steve Martin Fan. Yes, the man had made his fair share of stinkers over the years, but the man is still hilarious. I still have Bowfinger on my Top 10 Underrated Comedies of all time list. So now the good folks over at Film Rot are reporting that Martin is close to signing on to play Daily Planet Editor Perry White in the upcoming Superman flick. Here’s what they have to say:

Wizard Magazine, in their latest issue, claims that The Jerk himself, Steve Martin is close to landing the role of Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White! The magazine further states that Martin feels the role would give his career, where he recently starred in duds like Bringing Down the House and Cheaper by the Dozen, a much-needed boost.

Now, even though I’m a Martin fan, I just don’t see this as a good fit for either him or the character. I personally don’t want to see Perry White as a slap stick comic relief character like the J.J.J. in Spider-Man (who was great). Don’t get me wrong, I won’t complain if Martin gets this… I just don’t see it.
