I'm willing to bet Leo will be asked however I'm not sure he'd take it either. He said he would take a long break from acting a few months ago, and he reportedly turned down Star Wars too (which is insane). My money is also on McConaughey

Leo will work with David O. Russell:

I didn't know about that. Then again, that's not really a 'big' film that tons of people will go see, like Gatsby, Inception or Django.

McConaughey still feels like the guy for the role. Im betting on him.

I cant see Dicaprio or Pitt being approached for this kind of thing. Maybe Leo but I doubt he'd take it. There's better choices.

Jon Hamm. Denzel Washington (too old? too controversial for certain people?). Matt Damon feels like it could happen.
I think for definite

I haven't read this thread yet, and I am sure the name I'm about to suggest has been mentioned a few times already, but my current favorite for the role is Patrick Wilson.

Matt Damon is becoming more and more of a favorite of mine. Wouldn't be upset if McConaughey gets it as well. My top 2 dogs are Damon and McConaughey for Lex.

I've watched Patrick Wilson in a lot of stuff recently (Conjuring, Watchmen, Hard Candy, A-Team, Lakeview Terrace) and I think he is really good and be more than happy to see him get a big role as Lex.

Because of his stardom and yes, the fact that he has a bald head in Elysium lol...I do see Damon being approached by Snyder. Im sure he'll take it too if he's not busy. He loved Nolan's trilogy and I heard he was up for Harvey Dent before Aaron Eckhart got the role.

But Im sticking with McConaughey.

Really? All I know is that besides Eckhart, Mark Ruffalo tried out for it.

Without trawling through all the pages - has Daniel Day Lewis been put forward yet?
As for Dicaprio, I can really see him playing the Joker.

Pretty sure WB would love it if Leo did the role. If I remember correctly, they wanted him as Riddler in TDKR.

My only issue with McConaughey is his accent. Can he drop it for a movie? I don't believe I've ever heard him do it. And Lex should NOT have a twang.

Come to think of it... Leo could actually play a pretty convincing Nolan

"Nolan" would win all the Oscars

"Jonathan?..."

"What time is it Chris?"

"About 4:27 AM...Listen, I have a brilliant idea for my next picture. I just thought about it while I was sleeping. I had to run to the phone to tell you about it...Jonathan, will you help me write it?"

"Hurry up and tell me what it's about"

"Well it's sort of a corporate espionage story, but it involves stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state...There are these specialists, Jonathan...They specialize in extraction of these secrets...But listen to me Jonathan. But our picture will instead focus not on stealing an idea within a dream, but planting one....*smirks at the camera* Jonathan, I call it Inception...Will you help me plant the seed, brother?"

"Not at 4:27AM Chris...Now leave me alone."

*Jonathan Nolan hangs up the phone*

Denzel would make a pretty ****ing good Lex. I just saw him on Letterman last night, and he's shaved his head for a movie role. The dude has the commanding presence that I see as a great fit for Lex. Then there's the whole intense and intimidating yet can still be charming aspect that would be pretty cool to see pulled off with Lex.

He probably wouldn't take it, though.
