Hump Day Hottie: Henry Cavill

Since today is Groundhog Day, the day that Punxtamey Phil is supposed to pop out of his hole, and then tell the world whether or not we will have six more weeks of godawful winter, I thought we could use something hot to look at.  This week's piece of British Beefcake is Henry Cavill, who played Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk in the Showtime series The Tudors, and as far as I'm concerned the only reason to watch that horrible series.

Henry hails from the island of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands, that sit midway between France and England.  His father is a stockbroker and he attended Stowe boarding school.  Recently Henry was cast as Superman, following in the footsteps of Christopher Reeve (totally hot) and Brandon Routh (not so much).  The film, to be directed by Zach Snyder who gave the world 300, should put Henry over the top if it's successful. But this isn't Henry's first time at the Hollywood table. He was up for James Bond before Daniel Craig snatched the role. Stephanie Meyers also wanted him desperately to play Edward Cullen before the producers didn't think he could cut it anymore as a teenager.

Superman is my least favorite superhero (I much prefer Batman), but I will go to see the film to see how Henry fills out the tights!

Henry is such a good actor and he can really play Superman's role. with his talent and abilities I am sure that this will be a big break for him.
