Jamie Dornan Auditioned for Superman in His Pajamas

Jamie Dornan, the celebrated star of the Fifty Shades series, recently offered a surprising glimpse into his past aspirations as he revealed an unconventional audition attempt for the iconic Superman role.

During an engaging discussion on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Dornan disclosed that he took a distinctive approach when vying for the part of Clark Kent / Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

Recalling his audition escapade, Jamie Dornan reminisced,

“The only one I auditioned for is Superman. That was way back when, like when Henry Cavill got cast. That’s probably 12 years ago or something. I wore my own suit there. Was that a mistake? They were Superman pajamas, they weren’t an actual suit. I remember an early audition for that. I got nowhere near putting the [real] suit on… I’ve had meetings with heads of studios that do those things and would talk about it, but I never got deep in any audition process for them.”

While Dornan’s distinctive approach didn’t land him the role, the world of superheroes continues to evolve.

The spotlight now shifts to David Corenswet, who will embody Superman in James Gunn’s forthcoming production, Superman: Legacy. This reimagining explores Superman’s journey to harmonize his Kryptonian legacy with his human upbringing, embodying values of truth, justice, and compassion.
