This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the passing of the first big screen Superman, Christopher Reeve. In light of this, Entertainment Tonight caught up with Reeve's eldest son, Matt and he spoke a little about a side of his father that he thinks most people never got to see.
He was wickedly funny and had a very dry wit,I don't think people know that about him. He maintained that humor even after his injury. He was just always a funny guy.

I think he was very well cast, did a great job. I saw the movie.
