In 2005 Brandon Routh soared into the media limelight when he was cast as “the Man of Steel” in director Bryan Singer’s highly anticipated revival of the original superhero film franchise “Superman Returns.”
Born in Des Moines, Iowa and raised in nearby Norwalk (about 100 miles south of Woolstock, the hometown of TV’s original “Superman,” George Reeves), the strapping 6’3″ Routh was a high school athlete who swam and played soccer, as well as starring in several theatrical productions. He attended the University of Iowa for a year before heading to Hollywood in search of his big break.
Routh got his first major role in 1999 on the television sitcom “Odd Man Out.” This was followed by a four-episode stint on the nighttime soap “Undressed” and an appearance on “Gilmore Girls” in 2000. The actor earned steady work on the daytime drama “One Life to Live,” originating the role of Seth Anderson from 2001-2002. His subsequent primetime credits include guest stints on “Cold Case,” NBC’s “Will & Grace” and “Oliver Beene.” Routh recently appeared in an episode of NBC’s horror anthology series FEAR ITSELF.
Brandon was seen in “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” a Universal film opposite Michael Cera and directed by Edgar Wright. The comedy is about Scott Pligrim who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil ex’s in order to win her heart. This past TV season, Routh guest stared on NBC’s “Chuck” as “Shaw”, a mysterious new spy who takes control as the new leader of Operation Bartwoski, becoming a mentor to Chuck and a rival in his affections for Sarah. Routh can also be seen in “Dead of Night,” a film about the beloved Italian comic book hero, Dylan Dog. He graced the big screen in Kevin Smith’s film, “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” with Seth Rogen and Justin Long, as well as “Life is Hot in Cracktown,” based on the novel by Buddy Giovinazzo, where he stars opposite Lara Flynn Boyle and Kerry Washington, and the romantic comedy “Table for Three.” He is in the post-production stage on “Unthinkable,” a psychological thriller also starring Samuel L. Jackson, as well as the dark comedy “Miss Nobody,” where he stars opposite Leslie Bibb and Missi Pyle, about a secretary who discovers she has a talent for murder as she ascends the corporate ladder. Brandon can now be seen in the indie feature “Fling,” which recently premiered on Showtime, about a couple in an open relationship who are stretched to the breaking point when each partner finds themselves falling in love with other people. Mr. Routh most recently appeared in the sitcom “Partners” about two lifelong friends, who are both architects, and form a business partnership.
