So Long, Superman

Christopher Reeve passed on today, due to secondary complications from his spinal cord injury. He’ll be missed; this guy was, bar none, the best to play Superman — and Clark Kent — on the big screen. I could never get over how he changed on screen once he put on those glasses, brushed away the spit curl, and spoke in that geeky falsetto. I don’t think any actor will ever be able to pull off Kent like Reeve. Ever.

    I was really sad when I heard this morning while driving to work :-(

    I’m not sure why, though–maybe because I hoped he would be able to walk again someday. Or maybe because, like you, I grew up watching his movies.
