Terence Stamp, one of the most prolific actors of our time, joined us on the Morning Show to talk about his new film “Unfinished Song.” Even though Stamp has never had trouble staying contemporary, he said he just can’t accept the new Superman movie.

Born of working class parents, Stamp said he fell in love with acting after seeing a Gary Cooper movie. He was nominated for an Oscar for his first film role and has been an A-list celebrity ever since. You’ve seen him in nearly every big movie of the past 20 years including “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace,” “Valkyrie,” “Wanted,” “Wall Street,” “Young Guns,” “Alien Nation,” “Bowfinger,” the TV show “Smallville,” “The Haunted Mansion,” “Elektra,” “Get Smart,” “Yes Man,” “The Adjustment Bureau,” and more. He’s been in the tabloids for dating women like Julie Christie and Jean Shrimpton.

Big Jim and Stacy Lee got him to dish about the first time he met future-girlfriend Brigitte Bardot (she told him he was a cannibal), and his absolute lack of interest in seeing the new CG thriller “Man of Steel.” Stamp was, after all, the original General Zod in “Supreman” and “Superman II.”
