The day has come.  We can finally see the face of Superman’s grandfather.  Deadline reports that Syfy has cast Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El in their new Superman prequel, Krypton.

Cuffe joins actress Georgina Campbell, who has been cast as Lyta Zod.

Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of Krypton, so there are all kinds of tasty historical morsels to look forward to.

Syfy describes Seg-El and his role in the show like this…

‘Destined to be the ancestor of Jor-El (future father of Superman) and Kal-El (the future Superman), Seg-El is the scion of the once-prosperous El family and is blessed with an intuitive brilliance for all things technical. He now is living in Krypton’s lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank.’

It’s exciting.  Yes it is.

Krypton has been ordered by Syfy and currently has no air date.   Stay tuned!
