Brandon Routh is Zachary. Before starring in “The Nine Lives of Christmas,” he played Superman in the movie “Superman Returns.” According to IMDb, he actually went as Superman to a Halloween party in 2003 and won a costume contest, only to be offered the movie role the next year. He had also auditioned for the role of Clark Kent on “Smallville” years before getting the movie role.

According to IMDb, when Henry Cavill replaced him as Superman, Routh said: “I would have liked to have done another movie. I love the character, and the fans are great. It has been an amazing family to be a part of. I feel like I still had more to do, and to grow as the character. But Henry [Cavill] is a great actor and has done a nice job. I’m happy for Superman fans that they get another film.”

He continued to have a big role in the D.C. universe, though. Years later he was cast as Ray Palmer/The Atom on “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Arrow,” “Batwoman,” and “The Flash.” He also played Superman again on one episode of “The Flash.”

His many other credits include “The Rookie” (Doug), “Anastasia,” “Vixen” (The Atom), “400 Days,” “Lost in the Pacific,” “Enlisted,” “Chosen” (Max), “Partners” (Wyatt), “Chuck” (Daniel Shaw), and more. He’s currently filming “The Redeemer” and “2022Magic: The Gathering” according to IMDb.
