Catching up with Brandon Routh at Wizard World’s Philadelphia Comic Con was a treat to say the least. I got the chance to chat with him about his new baby, what he loved about Superman, and about some of the behind-the-scenes moments from Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
Our chat started off with a little Marvel talk. When I asked Routh about the perks of being the legendary Superman, he said:
I loved being a part of the role. I’ve always looked up to Christopher Reeves and I loved wearing that outfit!
And, I’m sure many women out there loved Routh wearing that outfit as well. I also told him how a personal favorite of mine was his role as Bobby Long in the comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno. If you haven’t seen it, watch it right now. Routh laughed that:
Bobby Long was a lot of fun. There were a lot of bloopers. I mean we would do like five minutes of just improv. Check it out. There’s a blooper reel on the DVD.
Routh is too late. I am all ready quite familiar!
We then moved on to talk about his being on a show called Partners where he plays a character named Wyatt.

Aside from Partners, Routh let me know that:
I’ve been taking time off because I had a son about nine months ago, so I’m currently taking some daddy time and doing conventions like this. It’s a great way to connect with fans.
So, what else is new with Routh? Not only is he a proud father, but he’s a proud brother as well!
