‘Man of Steel’ Finds Its Hard-Nosed General in Harry Lennix

Harry LennixEnlisting in the upcoming best-Superman-movie-since-1983 Man of Steel is Harry Lennix, most notable for his role in The Matrix sequels as Commander Lock. Lennix will be portraying General Swanwick, whose description as a “high-ranking military officer” might suggest a heavy significance to the story. Lennix seems to have a penchant for playing various forms of military personnel and law enforcement, as he portrayed an army sergeant in Across the Universe and has appeared in The Handler, JAG and Diagnosis Murder.

Lennix joins Christopher Meloni, also cast as a military officer, and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Kevin Costner in Man of Steel.
