We have a new superman! Michael Bishop has taken over the role of Jonathan Kent, the son of Lois and Clark Kent, in Superman & Lois.
Let’s take a deeper look at his real life as this Michael Bishop Bio proceeds.
Michael Bishop On Superman & Lois
Michael Bishop was cast as “Jonathan Kent” on Superman & Lois in September 2022 after the previous Jonathan, Jordan Elsass suddenly quit the show.
“Jordan Elsass has notified the Studio that he will not be returning to Superman & Lois for season 3 due to personal reasons,” Warner Bros said in an official statement. As per the sources close to the situation, Jordan’s exit was the result of a private matter and not a workplace-related issue.
So, after Jordan’s departure, the production team was in crisis as they had to rush to find a new Jonathan. “It was a bit of a whirlwind because it all happened really fast. We had all just gotten back to Vancouver ourselves for the beginning and then we got the news. It was a little bit shocking for everyone,” the show’s star Elizabeth Tulloch explained.
Luckily, Michael was available. He even flew up to them (of course, on a plane) from Australia and then he got the part within a week and started filming right away. “I’m not kidding, when we had chemistry reads with him — five days later he was on set filming,” Elizabeth shared. “So, it was fast and he just took it like a champ and we rolled with it. I think people will really like him, he’s a great actor and he’s a lovely person.”
Now, as for fans’ take on the cast change, most of them seemed hopeful that Michael will bring a new dimension to the role of Jonathan Kent, a character that has so much untapped potential.
“Actually looks more like a child of Tyler and Bitsie than the previous actor. Hope he has chemistry with the Kent family on screen,” a fan wrote.
How Much Is Michael Bishop Net Worth?
Michael Bishop garnered a net worth of under $250 thousand by 2023. Yes, this might be comparatively less considering he’s in Superman & Lois series. But note that he only joined the show for its third installment. Also, prior to that he only appeared in the movie Spin (2021) as Max and in the series Grace Beside Me (2018) as himself.
He also had a chance to be in the short films Skin Like Bark (2017) and Shelter (2019).
Looking back, Michael has been enamored with acting ever since he played “Tweedledee” in Alice In Wonderland at the young age of 8. But even then, he took his job seriously. “The boy who played Tweedledum, we were kids so what can you expect? But he forgot to say his lines. In the middle of a live audience, I said ‘Come on, get an idea,’” the actor recalled.
So, as he grew up to pursue a career in acting, he joined the National Academy of Performing Arts in Australia as a fourth-grade student, and now he’s “Jonathan Kent”, the son of Lois and Clark Kent, in Superman & Lois.
The last we checked, he was represented by Brave Artists Management and Gilchrist Management.
When Michael’s not acting, he likes to surf, write films and scripts hang out with people and eat new stuff.
