Cain says he’s met all the other new supermen, and he even played basketball once with Routh. “We never got to finish it up, because we hung it on a cliffhanger for Season 4 and we weren’t able to shoot Season 5 for medical reasons.” When asked to elaborate, Cain says more episodes had been ordered, but Hatcher announced her pregnancy and had to leave the series after producing a doctor’s note. In 2000, Cain had a son with his girlfriend at the time, Samantha Torres, a model.“The thing that drives me more than anything else is being a father,” he says.
He doesn’t buy into the idea of a Superman curse—the idea that actors who play Superman can never really be accepted in other roles (and they’re doomed to a grim demise.)“I think it’s the biggest can of baloney I’ve ever heard,” Cain says. “So it’s why I’ve done so much family fare in the last few years.
Could Alex go over to the dark side herself, if Jeremiah makes a compelling enough argument?
We shouldn't rule it out, per Kreisberg: "The question of 'where do Alex's loyalties lie' plays a major part of the next episode and battle lines are drawn a little bit," he teased. But yeah, we've known Dean for a long time now and we're just getting to know Teri.
In June, Cain dives into boot camp for Stars Earn Stripes, an NBC series created by Mark Burnett that’s like Survivor but with celebrities—and military challenges instead of endurance competitions.
“It’ll probably make me look silly,” Cain says, but he sees a potential upside: the weaponry.
“Something else, higher.”Dean Cain has seen Bring It On? “That particular one was about a girl who was given a gift to sing from the angels above, but had to follow the rules to keep that gift.” If you haven’t heard of it, there’s still time, since he just completed the script to Pure Country 3.
He considers himself a producer, but adds: “I’m currently producing nothing.”In the mid-‘90s, Cain’s career was as hot as the spandex suit that his Man of Steel donned every Sunday night.
In 1987, she played the daughter of Patty Duke's lead character in the short-lived Fox comedy Karen's Song.

On the hit TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Dean Cain frequently saved the planet and Lois Lane (played by a pre-Desperate Housewives Teri Hatcher, who was always plunging from high buildings.)But since Cain hung up his famous red cape in 1997, his adventures have been less than super.
“You don’t go shooting 50-caliber sniper rifles every day.” In Cain’s other war-related role, the Hallmark Channel movie, Operation Cupcake, his character returns from combat to open a cupcake shop.
Cain becomes even giddier when he talks about the new TV pilot he just finished filming, which he’s pretty certain will get picked up.
