He next can be seen in Hulu’s limited series Dopesick. He is repped by WME and Hamilton Hodell. Fantastic Frankey from TikTok made this observation of fans pointing out that we should not worry about this casting being comic book accurate because he’s such a good actor saying, “Its just crazy to me how, when they cast conotically, handsome man, being hansome is part of his character. Now it doesn’t matter that they are comic book accurate. How is it grace when yall bullied Jessica alba into wearing a terrible blond wig and blue contacts? Or when you told the beautiful Gal Gadot that her boobs were too small to play wonder woman.”
8. Dean Cain blasts DC Comics’ new bisexual Superman as ‘bandwagoning’
The 55-year-old actor — who starred in the ABC series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” from 1993 to 1997 — took jabs at the comic book publisher during an interview with Fox & Friends on Tuesday. “They said it’s a bold new direction, I say they’re bandwagoning,” Cain defiantly declared. “Robin just came out as bi — who’s really shocked about that one? The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in [the TV series] ‘Supergirl,’ where I played the father, was gay. So I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.”
