I agree.
I think it may be a smaller role, like an Inspector Henderson cop type. Heck, maybe Emil Hamilton. But Lex?
I dunno. Not that he couldn't hack it, it's just that it feels out of step with the rest of the casting.

Thanks!

But yeah, if he is Lex, it'd tie in with the whole "unexpected but so right" thing going on with the entire cast so far.

There are two aspects to this news. Chris Meloni is in superman, and it's a major role. Why would you believe one, and not the other?

Whoa, very unexpected. The first thing that comes to mind is Lex. I haven't really seen him act because I don't watch Law & Order. But from what I've seen, he seems like a solid enough choice. I can imagine him bald.

Sorry about that. I just read it. Yes, it says "major role." Got it. Deadline is gospel.
I'd say Perry or Gen Lane.
I'm not familiar with his work.
Anyone have a youtube video iof him in a Lex-like role?

Sweet I love this guy in SVU. I'm not sure what role I would like him in best, but just having him around will sweeten the taste in my mouth. no homo.

IMO I could see him as Lex without having to be actually bald

what i like about him is he has convincingly played good guy roles very well but can also be quite intense and bad ass and that is something Lex needs because every superman film has gotten Lex completely wrong.

Nice choice for Lex if that's the role he's going for. I like him a lot in Law & Order and he cracked me up as Freakshow in Harold and Kumar.

Obviously as others have said, sounds like it would be Lex Luthor, and I would love it.

Could be other possibilities depending on what "big" characters are involved. Perry White as mentioned. Some possible reaches; John Corben? Brainiac? Morgan Edge?

Yup. When I first watched that film, my gf and I couldn't figure out why he looked somewhat familiar so we looked it up. We were pretty damn surprised. He's also in the not so funny sequel as a KKK leader.

I agree 100%. I personally want Lex to seem like a good man to the public, but Superman sees him for what he truly is.

If he is Lex it would be an interesting approach, to have Lex as more of a "tough guy" (in personality and physicality) than we've seen previously.

If hes going to play Lex, I hope they have him keep some of the swagger Stabler had on SVU.

Maybe slap a subordinate around a little who's pissing him off.

I don't care who he plays just as long as it's a major role. He's a fantastic actor. SVU is done now that he's gone.

I think Lex. Isn't he too young for Perry White?

He's older than Hugh Laurie was when Laurie was going to be Perry before the recast in SR.

Gotta be Lex. He might be a good Brainiac or Jax-Ur, but come on. He just screams Lex.

I sure as hell hope it's not Sam Lane. The last thing I want is to feel like I'm watching another damned Hulk movie.
