Just the post before yours.
Anyway, I don't know if he was really "bored" by the role, but I noticed he was ... well not at 100% of what I think he can do.
When I heard K.Spacey was Lex Luthor I was deceived because I didn't think he would be good. Then I thought "well, he's a brilliant actor, he should theorically be effective ... OK!" and I watched the film ... and I was deceived by him. I think what you take as "bored", I take it as "I'm the buddy of Bryan, let's just have fun, I don't need to make efforts."
This being said, I say this apart
from what the story gave to him and apart from the vision of B.Singer.
