As the film version of The Greatest American Hero heads into production in July, the casting process is underway, and 90210's Ian Ziering has reportedly auditioned for the part of hero Ralph Hinkley.
The casting breakdown for the role of Ralph Hinkley describes "The Greatest American Hero": "29-39, an all-around good guy, with boyish handsome good looks, smart, decent, honorable and resilient, Ralph is a high school history teacher in Tempe, Arizona, a bachelor who hasn't yet found the right girl. Selected by a bunch of aliens as the perfect hero to champion the rights of humankind against an evil nemesis, Ralph gets a superhero suit and a rather gruff squire in the form of FBI agent Bill Maxwell - neither of which yield easily to his control. Stuck inside the suit while awaiting for a duel-to-the-death challenge from his sinister opponent, Harve Lundy, Ralph proves to be honest, upright, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent as he prepares himself to do or die, without losing his Eagle Scout-ish honor or his suit in the process. Oh, and he gets a girlfriend along the way."

Reportedly from Rotten Tomatoes Ian Ziering has tested for the part, Ziering is best known for his role in "Beverly Hills 91210" as Steve Sanders.

The current script has been written by Chris Matheson and Ryan Rowe, based on the 80's TV show of the same name where Ralph Hinkley, a school teacher is given a super hero suit by aliens and has to bummble his way as a hero after loosing the instructions about the suit.
