JGL would probably add some much needed umph to the Olsen role, and I have no doubt he would be the best Jimmy Olsen we would have seen onscreen ever!

Imagine Anne Hathaway as Lois Lane, Gordon-Levitt as Jimmy Olsen and Armie Hammer as Clark Kent/Superman?

Kick ass and FTW!
I'm sorry but it would be a WASTE OF TALENT. Maybe Yelchin can go ahead and do it, (I'm sure he'll get sick of playing roles like these) but I'm pointing my finger towards Levitt.

Levitt is on the road to become the (unlikely) leading man type so no to a role like this. Jimmy's an enduring character but in movie land, but in the end he's just a bit part.

Get an a new commer to do Olsen. If he gets a lotta of attention, this could be the role that makes his career.
