Michael Landes' first major role was Jimmy Olsen in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in 1993. Michael Landes was able to bring the role of Jimmy more up to date and more modern than he had previously been depicted in other Superman media.

Landes was not invited to continue the role of Jimmy Olsen after the first season. The creator of the series explained in DVD commentary that this was because the producers perceived him to resemble lead actor Dean Cain too much. Justin Whalin took over the role for the remaining three seasons of the program.

Landes was born in the Bronx, New York, the son of Patricia, an interior decorator, and Bernard Landes, a marketing consultant. He married fellow actress, Wendy Benson, on October 21, 2000. They have two children, Mimi and Dominic.

  • According to commentary by creator 'Deborah Joy LeVine' (qv) on the _"Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" (1993)_ (qv) DVDs, he was not invited back to play Jimmy Olsen in the second season of that series because the producers felt he looked too much like star 'Dean Cain' (qv).
