he did not say that in that context. he said it as a joke and everyone took it literally.

but if he didnt...lets suggest actors who have...hair? sounds awful

Well, you'd wouldn't really be getting Seagal as Lex so much as Seagal's body double as Lex. Seagal has had a few to many five course dinners and tends to let his doubles do most of the work these days.

Say what you want about Arnold and Sly, but at least they clearly still have passion for what they do and go out of their way to keep themselves fit. Seagal, not so much.

What's the consensus about how physical Lex should be in this thing? I want a minimal amount of Luthor getting his hands directly dirty, as it were. No battle suit this time out. At best, I would want maybe Batman roughing him up a little. But no direct fisticuffs with our Man of Steel.

I don't really see the need for Lex to punch anyone, but then I am in the minority that doesn't understand the need for him to be young, muscular and handsome.

I don't want him to be young, muscular and handsome just for the effect...though there's nothing wrong with that. I just think it will be more interesting to see his decline into the bald, ugly Lex we are more familiar with. I hope we get a little of Lex in this film, so when you first meet him he is the ideal of the man who has everything. Then you'll see him lose it all because of jealous, envy, etc.

I have not accepted the "He stole my beautiful hair" reasoning for Luthor's vendetta against Superman since I was a wee itty bitty lad. That stated, I would love for Lex to have it all when we first see him, and by the end of the film he's at least lost his hair and it is because of something connected to Superman. I don't want it to be a FOCAL point for ole Lexy, but it would be one of many irons thrown into the "I hate Superman" fire.

Cancer. From overexposure to the Kryptonite.

He has chemotherapy, shaves his hair off, wears the black glove to hide his tumour ridden hand.

I think it would be a neat sub plot. Could be a deeper reason why Lex hates Superman, his race, and his homeworld. He could potentially die through it all.
