He's also got a massive beer belly

I'm gonna be unoriginal and lazy here... Jean Dujardin for Lex!

Meloni is a very versatile actor...I like his work a lot

Meloni as an intellectual, the smartest man on Earth.. would still be a major stretch to me.

Obviously Meloni could play a villain. Stabler had borderline villain qualities (see SVU "Rage")

But Meloni comes off as way too street to play the smartest guy on the planet. It would be really awkward.

Lex Luthor grew up on Suicide Slum (Metroplis' Crime Alley) in some interpretations, if he were Lex they could be going for that interpretation.

But how would it work? If Meloni turns into Lex, how would it be done?

Exactly. I mean it's not like fans thought Ledger was a guy you would associate with The Joker. Same goes with Oldman as Gordon.

Ledger did the best Joker I've ever seen...I never really sat back and said, "Oh ****...they cast Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon". I wasn't really bothered by that. But when they said Ledger was going to be the Joker I thought the movie was doomed for sure

And what is this look your talking about? Lex has been drawn with different features and builds.

You must have hated TAS Lex if you consider Chris's look brutish.

I wanted Meloni to be Lex as soon as we heard he was involved.

If Meloni turns out to be Lex down the line, then that's a subtle way of doing MOS without Lex while still very much including him.

Is it cause he's bald?

Personally, I think the idea of Hardy turning out to be Lex is implausible. Not to mention it would be a ripoff from BB and TDKR.

But to be ethical,I'm guessing there ain't no actual Lex Luthor in the franchise, and Meloni is merely BASED on Lex...but both ways seem odd.

It's supposedly been said that Meloni's character is a Superman hater...I think he's going to be Lex
