Finally Hollywood makes a decent casting choice. Seems Jim Caviezel ("Frequency", "The Count of Monte Cristo") is frontrunner for the role of "Superman", according to Aint it Cool. Caviezel is one of the most underrated actors around and the role could escalate his career to – ahem – new heights. Apparently Director Brett Ratner also met with Mark Ruffalo ("You Can Count on Me").
An epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves
