Here's an excerpt from the article titled "Truth, Justice and Kyle MacLachlan"...
You're one of the top dogs at Miramax Films and you've got a casting quandary on your hands. You need somebody to play George Reeves in a moody whodunit called TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE AMERICAN WAY, which deals with the tragic 1959 shooting death (was it suicide or murder?) of the star of TV''s Superman series, and will be produced and directed by enterprising indie filmmakers Mark and Michael Polish. However, the period film will be costing $20 million, give or take, which means you don't just need someone good - you need a guy who will put butts in seats. Like, say, John Travolta, whose reps have said he may be interested. Or Mel Gibson, even. Somebody with a solid fan base.
Anyone, in short, but Kyle MacLachlan, who would be note-perfect in the role.
