    The first time I saw Michael Landes was in "Final Destination 2". I thought he did a wonderful job in that movie, and that is how I became a fan of his.



    I use to watch "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman". Just recently I learned that Michael was Jimmy in the first season. As much as I loved the second Jimmy, I really think that Michael should have played Jimmy for the rest of the series. I think it was stupid, now after I new who it was, to have him stop playing Jimmy because he looked to much like Dean Cane.



    Anyway, Michael Landes is an amazing actor. I just think he does a great job at what he does for a living. It also doesn't hurt that he is really cute.moreless
