Josh Duhamel plays Sheldon Sampson, aka The Utopian, on “Jupiter’s Legacy.” The character is the leader of the Union of Justice and is effectively Mark Millar’s version of Superman. And, much as the children of the Union of Justice struggle to adhere to the rigid standards their parents left for them, so, too, does it appear that Duhamel is struggling to let go of The Utopian — at least in jest.
In a post to his official Facebook page, Duhamel shared a picture of himself in full hair and makeup (long, gray hair and beard) but completely shirtless — as you do when you’re emotionally working stuff out and want to remind your ex what they’re missing. Included with his post is a statement which reads, “When you get dumped by @netflix and have to put yourself back out there…. #sexysantasummer.”
There is one other sentence from that post: “What’s up, @hulu?” Based on Millar’s statement regarding “Jupiter’s Legacy,” it doesn’t seem terribly likely the series will be picked up elsewhere. Considering that Duhamel himself recently voiced Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, in the “Batman: The Long Halloween” animated films, has two other films in post-production and is listed as currently filming “Bandit” alongside Mel Gibson and Elisha Cuthbert, we imagine he’s actually handling the end of “Jupiter’s Legacy” just fine.
The one (and likely only) season of “Jupiter’s Legacy” is streaming on Netflix now.
