Actor Jamie Dornan has shared a few details on his failed Superman audition.

The famous Kryptonian has been portrayed by many actors over the years, including Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, and the upcoming Superman: Legacy movie, David Corenswet. However, one of the more famous portrayals is that of Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder’s 2013 movie Man of Steel.

Dornan, the Irish actor known for his roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, Belfast, and most recently, Heart of Stone, has shared details on his Man of Steel audition. He reflected on losing the part to Cavill in an episode of Happy Sad Confused.

“I wore my own suit there. Was that a mistake?” he quips. “They were Superman pajamas, they weren’t an actual suit. I remember auditioning for that. I got nowhere near putting the suit on.” He also shared how he nearly played Nathan Drake in an earlier iteration of the Uncharted movie, a role that ultimately went to Tom Holland.
