Cavill strikes with ‘Immortals,’ ‘Man of Steel’

written by Luciana XI.XI

Looking past Henry Cavill’s infinitely blue eyes and goofy grin, it’s not difficult to imagine the 28-year-old British actor transforming into an extremely intense dude as he describes the roughest day he experienced on the “Immortals” set — grasping the complex choreography for the film’s epic final battle.

“I was literally learning it minutes before doing it,” said Cavill during a recent interview to promote the mythological 3-D action flick. “That was fun and a great challenge, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I get pissed off at myself if I don’t get it exactly right.” Continue Reading

Crowe Gave Young Cavill Career Advice

written by Luciana VIII.XI

Henry Cavill’s career has finally come full circle – exactly 11 years after first receiving acting advice from veteran Russell Crowe, the two are to star as father and son in the new Superman film.

A teenage Cavill was attending boarding school in England when Crowe arrived on location to shoot the movie Proof of Life. The aspiring British actor received a walk-on role as an extra in the film and, after completing his scene, he spoke with the Gladiator star about life in the spotlight.

“I had been doing school plays and stuff and so I walked up to Russell and I asked him, you know, ‘What’s it like to be an actor?’ And he said, ‘Well you know it’s great. Sometimes they treat you great, sometimes they don’t. And the money’s pretty good too.’ And then everyone came running up and I waved, and I said, ‘Quick, run!’ Because they were all looking for autographs.

“And two days later I got a signed picture of him in Gladiator saying, ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ At the end of that journey of a thousand miles, that first journey, he’s there as well.”

26 – Henry Cavill

Who? Henry Cavill will be flying into the mainstream as Superman in Zack Snyder’s reboot Man Of Steel.

Why So Hot? He could hardly be hotter. As a Warner Brothers exec said, “He’s got an amazing quality. He has a very modern feel to him, we’re really going to try and make Superman as contemporary as possible”.

What’s Next? Cavill will star in Immortals, as the Greek warrior Theseus battling against the imprisoned Titans. There’s been plenty of buzz around director Tarsem Singh’s take on the story – also starring Mickey Rourke, John Hurt and Frieda Pinto – and it will be a high-profile test of Cavill’s much star power.

Cavill’s road to ‘Superman’ role

written by Luciana XXVI.VII

Stardom, as Henry Cavill knows, rarely happens in a single bound. Even when you’re the new Superman.

So while most people may not have heard of the 27-year-old British actor before he landed the lead in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, he’s hardly come out of nowhere.

In fact, he’s spent the past several years nearly getting — but ultimately been rejected for — such roles as James Bond (which Daniel Craig got), Batman (which went to Christian Bale) and, ironically enough, Superman (for 2006’s Superman Returns).

“You always feel a frustration when you don’t get a job, especially when you have no money, which was often the case in my career,” he says. “You try your best, everyone likes what you did, but you don’t get cast. It’s a very frustrating process to go through … I paid my dues, I’ve been through my baptism and I’ve been fortunate enough to be provided with the opportunities — and to be at the right time in my life — to play roles like this.”

Which explains why, when asked if he’s daunted by the prospect of stepping into the big red boots, he sounds anything but.

“(It’s) not scary. It’s fantastic — enjoyable. It’s an opportunity. It’s a chance to show what I’ve got, to enhance what I’ve got and entertain everyone and tell a good story.”

Henry Cavill and Tarsem Singh Talk ‘Immortals’ at Comic-Con

written by Luciana XXIV.VII

Sure, he was there to promote “Immortals” but Henry Cavill is the next Superman, and Comic-Con audiences are — to put it mildly — fans of Superman.

So when Cavill stepped onto the stage for a panel with his “Immortals” co-stars, producers and director on Saturday, the audience was hoping for a morsel of “Man of Steel” — as well as some “Immortals”

“Immortals” about the Greek warrior Theseus and the evil King Hyperion, drew massive interest at Comic-Con. In addition to Cavill, it has Frieda Pinto, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz and Mickey Rourke, and it’s directed by Tarsem Singh. Continue Reading

Men’s Health “Best Summer Bodies”

Henry Cavill is listed on #02 of Men’s Heath “Best Summer Bodies”:

Actor Henry Cavill is never one to deny a challenge. After wowing audiences as the Duke of Suffolk in the hit Showtime drama The Tudors, Cavill switched gears (and slimmed down to an impressive 6 percent body fat) to play the mythic Greek warrior Theseus in the upcoming USA epic Immortals. It’s just the type of role he relishes. “I’m from a family of six men, so I’m bound to be physical,” says Cavill, who recently returned to the gym to prepare for the titular role in next year’s Superman: Man of Steel.

To achieve the traditionally buff look of the caped superhero, Cavill turned to Mark Dwight, the same trainer who helped Gerard Butler sculpt the muscular build of a Spartan king for 300. His first priority: Packing on lean mass and building a strong foundation. Check out The 300 Workout to start building your own big screen physique.
