Man of Steel To Have Classic Superman Actor Cameo

In what could be a nod to fans of the original Superman movies, we learn that a classic actor from the a Superman movie will cameo in Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel movie.
Jim Bowers, who has run CapedWonder.com since 2002, has posted a message on his personal Facebook page that "There is going to be a classic Superman movie actor in Man of Steel. Care to guess who?"
Before everyone starts throwing names around like Gene Hackman, Margo Kidder or even Terrance Stamp, the actor is probably one lesser known, I'm assuming, as Snyder wants to take his Superman in a different direction than the Donner classics and has said as much.
More than likely it's an Easter Egg of sorts where movie goers wouldn't necessarily recognize the actor.
My guess would be someone like a Jeff East who played the younger Clark Kent in Superman: The Movie.
Who do you think it could be? Let us know in the comments below.
Update: It could very well be someone from the 1951 movie, Superman and the Mole Men. See the first comment below for another potential actor.
Update #2: Jim gives an update on his site:
HEY NEWS WEBSITES!
I NEVER SAID THAT THE ‘MAN OF STEEL’ MOVIE CAMEO
IS AN ACTOR FROM THE DONNER MOVIES.
I SAID, AND I QUOTE, “A CLASSIC SUPERMAN MOVIE ACTOR”.
THAT COULD INCLUDE AN ACTOR, ALIVE OR DEAD, FROM THE
SUPERMAN SERIALS, ‘SUPERMAN AND THE MOLEMEN’, OR THE
FOUR CHRISTOPHER REEVE SUPERMAN MOVIES.
P.S. THIS IS NOT A RUMOR, AND I WILL NOT REVEAL THE
ACTOR’S IDENTITY BEFORE JUNE 14, 2013.
Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Coster as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy, Harry Lennix as General Swanwick, Antje Traue as Faora and Aylet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van.
