i dont think i have ever seen craig play a villain he fits with your big name not associated with these types of roles, so the GA wont suspect too much.

james bond playing a villain
Well, he's a villain in Road To Perdition and less of a villain in TombRaider, but it's more that he has a certain look really. He doesnt look particularly friendly. Probably even less bald. He'd look downright scary with those blue eyes. And even when he plays the hero he still comes off as cold and cynical.

I would too. Baldness is Lex's iconic look. If they're going to foist a redheaded Lois on us they can at least give us a bald Lex!

Especially since being bald isn't all that stigmatized anymore. It's even seen as being cool.

Someone earlier in the thread suggested Matt Damon, which would be pretty clever casting to me.

Anybody ever think Clancy Brown could make a good Lex in live action? I mean, hes awesome as Lex in the cartoons but I think he has a very interesting look that would be ideal for Lex

Whilst Lex is obviously the villain of the story, if they're going for the CEO/politican angle, then he has to have incredible charisma and come across as hugely likeable to the general populace. It's only us (the audience), Superman and a few select others who will know what he's really like behind closed doors.

Whatever actor they cast in the role has to be believable, but also has to be naturally charismatic.
For me at least, Stuhlbarg is one of the few actors that I can see play the smooth and charming, family-friendly but also a Moriarty-esque character.

Btw he's never been bald, the picture is fake.

I think Mark Strong and also Ralph Fiennes have played enough villians for a lifetime. Seriously, I wonder if they deliberately chose negative roles or do they just keep getting type-cast.

Yeah, Brolin's a decent choice. He fits into my 'old but not too old, charming/sexy but not 'hot'' look. And he's a damn good actor

You mean old, but not old that he looks 100 look?

Hadnt thought of Mckidd. Good one. A redhead too.

Brolin might be the type of name they're going for though. A heavyweight.
