"Superman" shock, Josh out!

Josh Hartnett has elected not to play "Superman". What? after all that! Yep, The Hollywood Reporter says Hartnett, who tested for the project, has elected not to portray the Man of Steel, so a new trio of actors has emerged as top choices: Brendan Fraser, Paul Walker and newcomer Matthew Bomer, whose only credits include the daytime dramas "Guiding Light" and "All My Children." Warners is trying to make test deals for the actors, with hopes of putting them in front of the camera sometime next week.
