About Michael Landes

Michael Christopher Landes (born September 18, 1972) is an American actor. He is known for his roles of Jimmy Olsen in the first season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Detective Nicholas O'Malley in Special Unit 2, and Officer Thomas Burke in Final Destination 2. Michael Landes' first major role was Jimmy Olsen in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in 1993. Michael Landes was able to bring the role of Jimmy more up to date and more modern than he had previously been depicted in other Superman media. Landes was not invited to continue the role of Jimmy Olsen after the first season. The creator of the series explained in DVD commentary that this was because the producers perceived him to resemble lead actor Dean Cain too much.
