Sometimes an actor takes on a role that leads to consequences. In remembrance of someone most of you have never heard of: William Boyd aka Hopalong Cassidy. Children's hero of the 1930's/40's. He refused to be other than a hero to them. -- Knitnan
Albert Dennis was a rogue. Everyone who knew him knew that. He was a renowned philanderer, frequent drunkard, and all-around party boy. He would lie, cheat, and steal his way into whatever he wanted with no regard to the consequences. And he would frequently use his good looks to charm -and sleep- his way out of them.
Until they cast him as Superman.
It was no shock that they did it. He was a well-built and telegenic fellow who looked like he stepped right out of a comic panel. In the suit, he definitely looked the part. Out of the suit... he certainly wasn't expected to act the part. And that's what surprised everyone.
