Superman Henry Cavill stopped by The Tonight Show yesterday to promote his upcoming action flick Immortals, opening this Friday. In the brief chat with Jay Leno, Cavill revealed that he was once an extra on Russell Crowe's movie Proof of Life. Cavill said that he had been doing school plays at the time and walked up to Crowe and asked what it was like to be an actor. Before Crowe could answer, a crowd of fans were approaching to get autographs. Two days later, Cavill received an autographed photo from Crowe with a message – "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." In Superman, Crowe plays Cavill's father, Jor-El.
