For the stage play of "Armie Hammer is a nice looking man"???? I don't think B. Crystal will work because he's ugly...but Billy Crystal can sing....if singing is required for Lex then I will nominate B. Crystal... I'm an equal opportunitst.

I like Ozymandias in Watchmen....creepy and understated. I have not seen "A Single Man".

I will admit that I like his look. Plus, I know he will look alright as a blond. I think Lex should be blond...not a red head like Smallvile.

I thought Ozymandias in Watchmen was very much like Lex Luthor personality wise, right down to the obsession with Alexander the Great.

But I don't know if I like Goode's look for the role.

Guy Pearce is an inspired choice. No-one can play a smarmy git quite like him.

I agree. I just don't see Lex as smarmy.

Guy Pearce would be epic. I hope he gets an Oscar nom for his performance in Lawless but they'll likely ignore it because the movie didn't create a lot of hype.

Matthew Goode is inspired.

He would be great as Birthright or classic Lex if need be.

I wouldn't want to see Goode as Luthor precisely because he DID play Ozymandias, and it would feel a bit much like a repeat, even if he gave a wildly different performance.

lol....I am not a comic purist. I don't mind changes if done well. Plus, I truly think a blond Lex is more appropriate to this day and age. Blond guys always strike me as the ones who are more...swarmy. No offense to any blond guys

Again, I want Lex to to be the genius/billionaire, and a blond billionaire seems more fitting to the golden boy who thinks he rules the world...IMO

I get it...he is a good actor. I just...he doesn't do it for me. Though I will admit that aside from Memento. I can't really recall anything he's been in where he plays that sort of role. What movies has he ben in where he has played the "I'm entitled; I'm the end-all be-all; You are beneath me; I hate wishing I was you"?

You are right about Hammer...le sigh. I just think the guy has the perfect look for Lex, but he is a LOT taller then Cavill. Then again, why must Lex have to be shorter then Superman? Iron Man is short, but once in the suit...size doesn't matter.

And LOL....I did see what you did there? Good one.

hehe

and check out Count of Monte Cristo... done and done. I didn't see Prometheus but I watch that long clip of him giving that speech to that auditorium of people. Good Lex type stuff there.

About the taller thing, Idk why it's weird to me, it just fills wrong. I think could go for same height tho...

As I was looking through Netflix, they have a list of his movies. I realize I have seen in him L.A. Confidential, Seeking Justice, The King's Speech, The Time Machine, Memento, Rule of Engagement, and Ravenous.

I don't even remember him in Rules of Engagement, but for me the only roles where he fit the I'm entitled; I'm the end-all be-all; You are beneath me; I hate wishing I was you" was in L.A. Confidential, Seeking Justice and the King's Speech...though in that role it was hard to see him as anything but Wallace's little lap dog.
