E! News has a glowing review of IMTA Alum Brandon Routh on Arrow! "Raise your hand if you're absolutely loving Brandon Routh on Arrow! Yeah, everyone's hands should be up right now. The former Superman has completely stolen our hearts as Ray Palmer, the smart, witty, competent and completely adorable new head of Queen Consolidated."
Brandon Routh competed at IMTA during the New York, New York 1999 Convention. 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 who both were at Kazarian/Spencer & Associates at that time. 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.
