You might remember the half-Filipino/half-Caucasian actor from his role as vicious killer Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. He’s currently starring in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix drama Hollywood, where he plays a half-Filipino with big picture aspirations.

Criss’s Clark Kent is a mild-mannered journalism intern at the Daily Planet in the film, which focuses on the young hero’s journey to become the superman we all know and love. He’ll also face off with Lex Luthor, voiced by Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto.

Superman: The Man of Tomorrow will fly into homes this summer on digital download, Blu-ray and Ultra HD.

Ryan is not Lord Voldemort even though they share a name. He hasn’t even read Harry Potter or watched a single movie. He’s more of a starships and space travel kind of guy. As a Trekkie and proud Filipino-American, he is our starship commander leading a fleet of writers and content creators at Avazz. He’s also an award-winning writer and journalist with a pilot currently in development. You can read more about his adventures at ryanthomasriddle.com.
