Richard Schiff - Richard Schiff Joins Man Of Steel

Richard Schiff has joined the cast of 'Man of Steel'.

The 'West Wing' star is set to play Dr. Hamilton in the Warner Bros. movie, which is set to star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent and his alter-ego Superman and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

According to Variety, Richard's character is expected to be Superman's scientific advisor and in the original comic books the doctor works very closely with Lex Luthor, who angers the medic when he buys up some of his research and passes it off as his own.

Zack Synder is directing the movie - which is expected to be released in 2013 - which will see Russell Crowe portray Superman's father, Jor-El.

Russell, 47, recently revealed has been hitting the gym in a bid to get fit for the role.

He wrote on twitter: "Yesterday 1 hr walk 1 hr gym, today pitiful bike ride but it is a very special day and i've got other things I need to do. go hard tomorrow.

"31.37 km bike ride. Bike 28.6 km, gym 1 hr. 2 walks, total time 1 hr 45 mins. (sic)"
