Brandon Routh

Brandon James Routh is an American actor, famed as one of only five actors yet to play Superman in live action films. He has always had superhero connections, growing up in Norwalk, only 100 miles from Woolstock, the birthplace of George Reeves, the first actor to play Superman on television, and attending Norwalk High School at the same time as Jason Momoa, famed for his role as Aquaman.

Brandon moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, appearing in such various projects as Christina Aguilera’s “What a Girl Wants” music video, and the TV series Odd Man Out, Undressed, Gilmore Girls, One Life to Live, Cold Case and Will & Grace, but his breakthrough came when he was cast as Clark Kent/Superman in 2006’s Superman Returns, the first Superman film in almost 20 years. He was described as the embodiment of “our collective memory of Superman,” becoming an “instant celebrity” when his casting was announced in 2004, and winning the “Best Superhero” award at the 2006 Spike TV Awards, even beating Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

Subsequently, Brandon appeared in films such as Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Fling, Kambakkht Ishq, Life is Hot in Cracktown, Unthinkable and Miss Nobody, before landing the memorable role of Todd Ingram, the arrogant, narcissistic bass player who derives psychic powers from his vegan lifestyle, and the third of Ramona Flowers’ Seven Evil Exes in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He has since played the title character in Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, recurred as Daniel Shaw in Chuck and starred in Partners and Call of Duty: Ghosts, amongst others.

In 2014, Brandon was cast as Ray Palmer / The Atom in the Arrowverse, guest starring in Arrow and The Flash, appearing in Supergirl and Batwoman, and playing one of the lead roles in Legends of Tomorrow. He also reprised his role as Superman in the Arrowverse crossover event “Crisis on Infinite Earths” and voiced The Atom in Vixen and the Lego DC Super-Villains game.

Brandon is also a Hallmark Christmas hero, starring in The Nine Lives of Christmas and its sequel, The Nine Kittens of Christmas. He also voiced Ral Zarek in the Magic: The Gathering Arena video game, and will be returning to that universe in Netflix’s upcoming Magic: The Gathering TV show in the role of Gideon Jura.

Recently, Brandon guest starred in The Rookie and has reprised his role as Todd Ingram in the Netflix animated series, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off.
