Thanks to the unexpected mid-season success of the Fox TV series "House," actor Hugh Laurie has been forced to give up the plum role of Perry White in Bryan Singer‘s "Superman Returns." Stepping into the recently vacated role is Mr. Frank Langella, a fine character actor who’s been seen in movies like "Cutthroat Island" and "Masters of the Universe," but is probably best known for playing the Count in John Badham’s 1979 "Dracula" adaptation.Reuters reports that Mr. Laurie had not yet shot any of his scenes for "Superman Returns."
