So, I took a little trip this past week. It was absolutely awesome. I haven’t had a real vacation in about four or five years, so it was much needed. My trip involved a 13 hour train ride to upstate NY, a family reunion, Megabus down to the City, a train ride out to Montauk, and finally a train and plane back to Chi-town. 22 hours of traveling right there people! I wont bore you with all the details of a family reunion where my Dad’s side of the family has 11 kids and over 30 grandkids, and currently 3 great-grandkids with another on the way. But it was fun in that sorta “Why aren’t you married and having kids of your own Jami?” kind of way. Once I left the reunion to bus it down to NYC, I enjoyed some nerd related activities. Here are a few of my nerd highlights. (above picture taken by Sara H.)
Want to be in Zac Snyder’s upcoming movie, Superman? Apparently, they are doing casting calls for all types this weekend and next week. Check out more information here.
Brandon Routh (Superman, “Chuck”) plays Dylan Dog, a private investigator of all things supernatural, comes to the big screen this month in Dylan Dog: Dead of Night. This movie is based on a comic book series Dylan Dog (betcha never saw that one coming). The movie also stars Taye Diggs as, what I’m guess to be, the main antagonist, a vampire. That man is sooo fine!! Yum. Gonna have to watch it just for that. [via Action Flick Chick]
Amy Adams will be Lois Lane in the new (uber real) Superman movie. After seeing “The Fighter” (with Mark Wahlburg) last weekend, I think she can actually pull off a decent Lois. I LOVED her in “The Fighter” (which, if you have not seen it, go rent it from Redbox, definitely worth the $1.08). I especially loved the normalized weight and belly she had, which, of course, is gone now. [via]
Zack Snyder interview on his upcoming Superman movie. Gonna respect the canon but make it a new Superman. Uh, Huh?
