Clive Owen.. so we can all have a Lex Luthor that looks like he hasn't had a shave in 2 days.

I really think Lex has to be presented as someone no more than 15 years older than Clark, at the most. He needs to be older, but not in a way that makes him from another generation. The difference should be more like youthfulness vs. maturity. Or am I being too obtuse?

Agreed on Shoot 'Em Up. Plus Owen. Seriously, put Nic Cage versus Giamatti and this guarantees 3 Billions, 15 Oscars, shot in 4D, 150fps (faps per second).

As for Lex, I'd say 10 years older is a happy medium. Clark is 33 (looks 30), Lex should be at most 45 and should look 40.

Shoot 'em Up featured a lot of Monica Bellucci's breasts. I thought it was a pretty good movie.

For that reason alone, it's an awesome movie.

Precisely!. Which is another reason why I want Lewis for the role. He fits that bracket perfectly. As do DiCaprio and Damon if it has to be a bigger name.

Yeah he did some great stuff in Superman Adventures, but what's wrong with Red Son? That's one of the greatest Elseworlds I've ever read, AND particularly it has one of the best depictions of Luthor.

Its such a shame that our chance to have Spacey as Lex, a guy who seems BORN for that role, was utterly wasted in "Returns".

No one's mentioned Kyle Chandler?

He's worked with Ben and a pretty darn good actor too.

True. But to be fair, Cavil was on the radar going back to RETURNS. That some would pick an actor that was a hairs breath from getting the part himself 6 years earlier is not that remarkable.

Let this sink in people. Viggo has been mentioned before, but that was before Ben's casting. Think about that now. Ben and Viggo facing off across the boardroom table.

Viggo is an excellent choice. If this was ten years ago, I would have liked Ed Harris. Strangely, the two remind me of one another.

Bryan Cranston FINALLY got asked about those Lex rumours, and put them to rest.

“I’ve heard that too. Six? This is all news to me. I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I’m known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?’ The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him.

I think I’ll relax the rest of the year. There’s some irons in the fire, things that people are talking about, but nothing is set."
