Though still had relatively few professional credits in his resume, Brandon James Routh could as well be one of the potential actors to watch in the 2000s judging from his great achievement to successfully nab the title of the next Superman in the succession of the late Christopher Reeve. A native of Iowa, Brandon was born on October 9, 1979 in Des Moines and grew up in the city's suburb of Norwalk where he later attended Norwalk Senior High School while enthusiastically developed his acting skills at the Norwalk Theater of Performing Arts. Upon his graduation in 1997, he then enrolled in University of Iowa to pursue a degree in English, but as his desire to act became really hard to resist, the brown-eyed teen ultimately decided to give up his study after a year and so headed for Hollywood to search for good opportunity to flourish a career in entertainment industry.
