Yes, Chiwe as BP is pretty good, but I think Lex is a meatier role for him (well, depending on how Goy/Sny/Ben write him).

I could totally see Chiwetel just oozing charisma and charm as Lex when he is in public, and just pure ego driven menace when he's running what ever the next scheme is he has incubating at the moment. I am sure it's the backlash for his race not being that of the source material that keeps something like this from happening.

What's Clive Owen been up to lately? He would be pretty intimidating as both criminal genius and brilliant CEO.
