Superman Reboot Looking for a 30-Year-Old Lead

Though Armie Hammer recently told Vulture that Zach Snyder's Superman reboot was looking for a lead actor in the 35-to-40 age range, Deadline reports that producers have set their sights a little younger: They're now looking for a non-name actor between 28 and 32 for the role. (Sorry, Jon Hamm!) They'll soon begin auditioning hundreds of actors for the film, which has a start date in June; that might be good news for rumored contender Joe Manganiello (the 33-year-old actor who's within spitting distance of the studio's age range), since his work on the fourth season of True Blood will have wrapped by then.
