    I think he'd be the perfect Superman! I mean, we'd finally see Lois Lane for the gold-digger we've always known her to be!

    It's not a rumor - it's in the mainstream news that they approached him to do Super Man (cause he's hot right now) but that doesn't mean it will get done.

    Do you think he will become a bonafide celebrity or Evan Who?

    Rabidfan, not that I don't believe you, but somehow I've missed this piece of news, and I read a LOT of news about reality shows (since most of it gets posted here). Do you have any links handy?

    I think we might see Evan reprising his role as "Moving Guy #2" in the near future, but that's probably the extent if his 15 minutes beyond this show.

    Hmmmm... John, I'll have to look through my reference material... yikes, Star, Enquirer, People.... no really it's true.. I'll see if I can find the link for you.

    Newsweek: good, here's the excerpted article, but alas, not the link... unless maybe this one works... it doesn't mention Super Man per se but I'll keep looking - it's the same offer...
    Newsweek 1/11/03 Getting to Know ‘Joe’

    Getting to Know `Joe'
    He deceived 20 single women. But the star of `Joe Millionaire' tells
    NEWSWEEK the truth about the show, his sudden fame—and those
    swimsuit shots.

    .
    .

    By: B. J. Sigesmund
    Newsweek

    Before this week, Evan Marriott was an everyday guy. Now people call
    out his name on the street, say "Hi" in restaurants and—oh, yeah—ask
    him to autograph pictures of himself in which he's practically
    naked.

    SUCH IS THE life of reality TV's latest overnight sensation.
    Marriott, 28, is the star of Fox's "Joe Millionaire," a new weekly
    series that takes the conventions of "The Bachelor" and adds a
    twist. Like the ABC show, single women on "Joe Millionaire" vie to
    outwit, outsmart and outdress each other in an effort to land a
    handsome quarry as a husband. But there's one big difference: the 20
    women in the contest were told Marriott is worth $50 million, when
    he's actually just a $19,000-a-year construction worker. (The
    audience at home is in on the joke.)

    Ratings for the Jan. 5 premiere beat the debuts of every other new
    show this season. Of course, exposure does have its downsides. Hours
    before the program was even broadcast, the Smoking Gun Web site
    uploaded pictures of Marriott modeling some skimpy swimsuits in a
    catalog called California Muscle. But was he embarrassed? Please—
    this is a guy who put himself on a reality show. "They're
    wonderful," he says. NEWSWEEK's B. J. Sigesmund got much more out of
    Marriott.

    Excerpts...

    NEWSWEEK: How many weeks did you train to learn to fake being a
    millionaire?

    Evan Marriott: I trained to ride the horse. I learned how to fence—
    though that was actually on a date. I learned about wine and
    etiquette and stuff like that. But you don't train somebody to be a
    millionaire. That person is who they are … I took the $50 million
    lie that Fox threw out there, and I said to myself, "Screw the lie,
    I'm gonna get to know these girls, they're all super hot." I don't
    know what red-blooded American male wouldn't want to be in this
    position.


    NEWSWEEK: This was a really big week for you. What agents have you heard from? Have any movie deals yet?

    Evan Marriott: Well, I was approached last night at a premiere by another network about a movie they thought I'd be perfect for. I thought that was kind of shocking. My comeback is, "Gee, I'm a bulldozer operator. I can't imagine why you want me for this movie."

    Ouch, I never saw that one. Thanks for the link! Like I said, it's not like I didn't believe you, but more like I couldn't believe I hadn't seen anything about it, with all the news stories I wade through every day.

    I hope the execs come to their senses soon.

    I'm still searching for the link that spells it out that it was Super Man.. also there is a photo in maybe the Globe (not sure but it's the one where he was on the cover last week) of Super Man plus Gaston (from Beauty and the Beast) equals Evan, so it's getting well known...

    Ladies? Anyone want to see more of Evan in the future? C'mon maybe a soap opera hunk at least??? Can't let a guy like him (the good and bad) go to waste!!!

    I kind of think he will be able to parlay this into something.

    How about a remake of the Beverly Hillbillies in that same old mansion. Maybe Fox will give him the 50 mil after all and we get to watch more Joe reality just like the Osbournes where the local gold diggers knock on the door to borrow a cup of gold bullion or swim in the cement pond...

    Come on you couldn't make this guy up, right? I say we use him for something!!!!

    He does nothing for me personally, but there a lot of actors out there that are making the big bucks that do nothing for me so who knows

    No thanks, rabidfan! There are enough mediocre actors on daytime tv as it is.
