Airing tonight on CBS, PARTNERS takes a page from the lives of WILL & GRACE creators MAX MUTCHNICK and DAVID KOHAN as it centers on the friendship between a gay man and a straight man who share a history and a business. Former NUMBERS star DAVID KRUMHOLTZ (KOHAN/straight) and UGLY BETTY’s MICHAEL URIE (MUTCHNICK/waaaaaaay gay) are joined by their on-screen partners played by SOPHIA BUSH (ONE TREE HILL) and BRANDON ROUTH (SUPERMAN RETURNS).
Probably best known for her role on the popular nighttime soap ONE TREE HILL, SOPHIA BUSH isn’t the first person to come to mind when thinking of sitcoms and broad physical comedy. But, at the Television Critics Association press conference to introduce the new show, BUSH admitted comedy is where her heart has been since she started acting. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

PARTNERS debuts tonight on NBC
Soon to be seen in the feature length film CROOKED ARROWS as a prep school lacrosse coach working to get his guys through a national tournament, actor BRANDON ROUTH has been keeping his dance card pretty full. Next up, he co-stars with SOPHIA BUSH, DAVID KRUMHOLTZ, MICHAEL URIE and MOLLY SHANNON in the new CBS-TV sitcom PARTNERS.
Probably best known for his titular role in the 2006 BRYAN SINGER reboot SUPERMAN RETURNS, ROUTH has been working hard to shed that image. We spoke with him a couple of days ago and he confessed hope that these two new projects will do the trick. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
CROOKED ARROWS opens in limited release 6/1
PARTNERS is on the fall CBS-TV schedule
Superman Return actors Brandon Routh (aka The Man of Steel) and Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen) reunite with Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, a feature which centers on a private investigator (Routh) who deals with various creatures and the undead. Huntington, who also stars in the SyFy series Being Human, plays Dylan’s undead assistant Marcus.
While promoting Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, Routh gave his post-mortem on Superman Returns, which was directed by Bryan Singer. “I loved the movie, I’ll stand by it,” said Routh. “Did it do everything that everyone wanted? That every fan boy and girl wanted? No. Do I think there should have been more fighting in it? Yes. It would have been great to have some fighting. Would I have liked to see more of Brandon as Superman flying, versus CGI Superman flying? Yes, because I just think that pulled me me out of the film a little bit. They did an amazing job, but there were still some shots that were not as good as the real thing, honestly.”

Inception filmmaker Christopher Nolan is producing the 2012 release Superman: Man of Steel, and Superman Returns star Brandon Routh would to return to the franchise. DC WarnerBros reports that Nolan will give Routh a screen test for the flick, but our bet is Routh has a minimal shot at landing the gig. Superman Returns, which attempted to bring back the spirit of director Richard Donner’s film Superman, was a commercial disappointment for Warner Bros., so expect the studio to give Nolan a completely clean slate with Superman: Man of Steel. At least Routh, who actually did a decent job as Superman, has had a stable career since the 2006 film (TV’s Chuck, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), so not getting the chance for more cape time shouldn’t completely shatter the guy.
