Yes, Lex is rich and views himself as superior to almost everyone, but (IMO) it should be because he IS superior to everyone. He's literally the most brilliant man on the planet and that power is essentially what corrupts him, even though he probably doesn't see it that way. Lex isn't just some uptight aristocrat type. But if Zane played him, I fear that is the type of Lex we would get. Even if he wasn't written that way, he'd come off that way.
Hey, I'm not saying Zan is the only choice for Lex, I was just pointing out that the reason people want him has nothing to do with being bald (Although that helped)
