    Look at Google images of him before you decide he is wimpy. With dark hair and no smile he looks a little creepy.

    he played Oliver Queen on Smallville and I think he too young to play Adam...

    But he is a good actor though

    Pleeze, why judge him based on a nice smile!
    He is a good actor and I hope we give him a chance;
    don't have the attitude no-one can replace MM (even
    if true--LOL)---GIVE HIM A CHANCE. Love the spiked up
    hair already (like MM wore it).

    If he's hired and filming...why do we have to wait so long?!!

    When you view his "google" shots, the one with a little hair/bearded growth on his face does add some age; let's see what they do with his looks to make him more in line with former Adam's age.

    He would have made a good Billy. I just hate the new Billy, he looks like a wax figure with a bag wig.

    He was very good on Passions as Fox but I wish him the best on this show. He's gonna need all the luck in the world to catch a real storyline. What on earth is the reason they are going to use that the character had to stay in seclusion for a year or more? Will it make any sense? Stay tuned or in my case not anymore:(
