At the Man Of Steel world premiere in New York, Laurence Fishburne was asked how he approached playing Perry While. Fishburne said, “Essentially, I used my model, my inspiration really is the late Ed Bradley, who was a CBS correspondent on 60 Minutes for many years.”
Fishburne continued, “Legendary Ed Bradley, who was a friend, a mentor, and a role model for me. Particularly because he worked in journalism, and he was the kind of guy who walked with kings, but he had the common touch. And so he was my inspiration for Perry.”
The Man Of Steel is scheduled to premiere in movie theaters in the United States on June 14, 2013.
