Although he is depicted as being a bit older in the comics, (and still alive, lol) I felt that Kevin Costner did an excellent job portraying this Character in Man of Steel, and Batman v. Superman.  Having been adopted myself, it brought a tear to my eye when young Clark, after being told of his alien origin, asked if they can still pretend that's [Clark] is his son, and Pa's voice cracks as he hugs him and says, "You are my son!" (I'm tearing up right now just writing about it!)  Phenomenal acting, regardless of what you think of the rest of the movie.  One of the few spots where I felt the newer films improved on the originals.
