‘The Walking Dead’ Actor Joins ‘Superman’ as Pa Kent

Production is well underway on DC Studios’ Superman and most of the cast of James Gunn’s 2025 film have been known to the public for some time. But while fans know who will be playing Kal-El, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen and even Perry White, the faces behind Superman’s father figures have not been revealed despite plenty of amateur detectives doing some digging. Now, one of those roles have been filled and it’s a face that will be recognizable to many.

Character actor Pruitt Taylor Vince, who played Otis in The Walking Dead and J.J. La Roche in The Mentalist, has been cast as Kal’s adoptive Earth Dad, Jonathan “Pa” Kent.

Vince joins Kevin Costner, Glenn Ford and John Schneider as actors who have portrayed Pa Kent in live-action. There is currently no word on who which actor will fill the role of Kal’s space Dad, Jor-El, who has been brought to life by Russell Crowe and Marlon Brando among others.

Superman is set to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
