Frank Langella has joined the cast of Warner Bros.' Superman Returns and will play Perry White.

Langella replaces Hugh Laurie, who had to bow out of the role because of scheduling conflict with his Fox television series House.

House, on which Superman Returns director Bryan Singer is executive producer, was just picked up for a second season.

Laurie had not filmed any scenes for Superman Returns, which is in production in Australia.

Langella, 65, has dozens of film and television roles, ranging from 1979's Dracula to Skeletor in 1985's Masters of the Universe to the current HBO series Unscripted.

Michael Clarke Duncan has been in two No. 1 comic-book films in just over two years, after the performance of Sin City over the weekend.

Duncan, who played the Kingpin in 2003's Daredevil, plays Manute in Sin City.

"This is the ultimate prize to play this guy," Duncan said. "I was a fan of Frank Miller's from a long time ago."

Duncan describes Manute as "a no-nonsense type of guy."

"If this were Daredevil, he'd be Kingpin's bodyguard," Duncan said.

Duncan is scheduled to be a guest on CBS' The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Tuesday.

In other Sin City news:

* Thanks to a stronger-than-expected performance on Sunday, Sin City's box-office total came in at $29.1 million over the weekend.

* Brittany Murphy continues the talk-show rounds, appearing on the syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday.

* Dan Taylor, an independent comic-book publisher and co-creator of GeekPunkıs Hero Happy Hour is a new editor at IDW Publishing. He will be assisting editor-in-chief Chris Ryall with a variety of editing tasks, as well as handling occasional marketing responsibilities.

Taylor originally broke into the comic book scene in 2003 with the self-published Hero Happy Hour (formally Super Hero Happy Hour), which he co-created with artist Chris Fason. Besides contributing short fiction to IDW's 30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales, Taylor has also written stories for Western Tales of Terror (Hoarse & Buggy Productions), Digital Webbing Presents (Digital Webbing) and Dr. Blink Superhero Shrink (Dork Storm Press).

"The opportunity to join the IDW crew is fantastic," Taylor said. "I can't thank Chris Ryall and Ted Adams enough for offering me the position. IDW represents many of the best publications that the comic book industry has to offer. To get the chance to roll up my sleeves and bury my hands deep into the midst of it all is really great."
