For those of you who love Charles Brandon from the hit show, The Tudors you will be seeing a lot more of this handsome man, as he is set to play the iconic and epic role of our favourite super hero, Superman!

Henry Cavill was born 5 May 1983 in Jersey, part of the Channel Islands. He went to St. Michael’s Prepatory School where he found his love for acting. Cavill began his career in The Count of Monte Cristo, and went on to make an appearance in the movie Tristan & Isolde.

He is known for his charm, good looks, and one other thing… his unluckiness. He was dubbed Empire Magazines “Most unlucky man in Hollywood,” in 2005 for the following reasons:

1. Cavill was up for the role as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter from his fan base, but the role went to Robert Pattinson (Twilight).

2. He also was originally cast as Superman in the 2006 rendition Superman Returns, but with change of directors came change of role.

3. Then led to the upsetting fight for the role of James Bond *insert music here*, unfortunately it was decided he was too young.

4. And this may be the biggest unlucky situation yet. Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight Saga *insert screams here*, had originally chosen Cavill as the lead role of our famous Edward Cullen, however, the role went to Robert Pattinson because of the time it took to start production for the film, he now could not fit the part of a 17 year old.

We wonder if Pattinson and Cavill have some beef or something, that’s twice you’ve taken roles Robert! No hard feelings though…

But, all of this unlucky mishap has brought on a great role, so we think all of his hard work and dedication has paid off!

For now, until the 2012 release of Superman: Man of Steel, we can catch this 27-year old British actor in the upcoming film, Immortals. It is a mythological film about the Titans and Olympians as Theseus (Cavill) tries to protect his homeland and save the gods. He is staring alongside some Hollywood A-listers such as, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Mickey Rourke, as well as Twilight vampire, Kellen Lutz.

We are watching out for Cavill and can’t wait to see Superman!
