Brandon Routh in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World!

IMTA alum Brandon Routh is starring as Todd Ingram in the feature film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World! Cinema Blend says, "A new international trailer for the Michael Cera movie has been released, and impossibly, it takes the fun levels up to eleven. In particular, this trailer offers an extended look at Brandon Routh’s part in the film, and as usual he seems genius." The Universal Pictures film is set for release August 13th.

Brandon Routh competed at IMTA during the New York, New York 1999 Convention. His handsome face was on the IMTA stage for Swimwear, Team Fashion, Runway and in acting competitions. IMTA insider scoop...he was known as BJ Routh then!

He had been scouted by Patrick Baca, who encouraged him to compete at IMTA. Brandon got lots of face time with the agents, managers and casting directors and ended up moving to Los Angeles. He signed with Mara Santino and Ryan Daly of Kazarian/Spencer & Associates. Routh was chosen for the role of Superman following an exhaustive search that spanned the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Thousands of candidates were interviewed before the final selection was made.

Prior to his worldwide starring role as THE MAN OF STEEL, Routh was best known for his soap work, including roles on One Life to Live and the MTV nighttime soap, Undressed. He's also had guest-starring roles on Cold Case, Will & Grace, and Gilmore Girls.
