Back on June 12th we reported that USA Weekend magazine, the magazine inserted with the Sunday edition of "USA Today" newspapers, had announced that their June 18th edition will contain various Superman related articles...

The USA Weekend website now has an article up regarding this story. Here's an excerpt from the article...

    Origins. Routh was born and raised in the tiny, Smallville-esque town of Norwalk, Iowa, where he acted in community plays, read many books and played various sports -- to go along with a fair share of Nintendo.

    Occupations. His teenage employment history includes one summer spent making corn dogs at the Iowa State Fair and the following summer at said fair picking up trash.
