Yea really is....but he's ethnic, so I'm guessing he's not being looked at....according to some...

Gus Fring is essentially Lex if Lex were a drug lord and possibly homosexual.

I really think that I'm still on the Hamm bandwagon right now. I can't think of anyone realistic that fits better.

Huh, I hadn't heard that. The point still stands, Eposito would be a fantastic choice. Keep Lex away from box cutters.

Billy Zane brings the movie down, I'm positive they won't cast him. He is the definition of washed up and was never that good to begin with.

Matthew McConaughey, Viggo Mortensen, or Bryan Cranston as Lex.

I don't want him for Lex at all because I supported him for Batman, it'd be too disappointing for me to see him as Lex, not Bats

Billy Zane looks alright for the part, and is bald. Posting pictures of him looking alright for the part, and being bald, changes little because we have always known him to look alright for the part, and to be bald.

We have also always known him to a feeble actor devoid of any screen presence, on whom any sizeable role in a project of this nature would be a lamentable waste.

I would like to see Oscar Isaac as Lex. Which isn't really all that unlikely, since Snyder's worked with him before, and while he doesn't reuse actors as heavily as Tarantino or Scorsese, he does occasionally.

Billy Zane is the pitch-perfect physical embodiment of Lex, but that's about it

Agreed.

Time Magazine would be an epic Lex Luthor. I also don't think he's working on any other movies at the moment. HURRY, WB! CAST TIME MAGAZINE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

According to my source WB has picked their Lex Luthor. Expect an announcement by the end of this week, or early next week.

As long as he's a really competent actor I'm down for whoever is chosen to be Lex. With that said, I'm still hoping for Joaquin Phoenix.

I'm betting its gonna be a huge name to make an impact. Much like how crowe and costner's name made folks do a double take with MoS. It could be a no name, but I doubt it.
I'm thinking it will be a name up there with a depp, day-lewis, or damon but not necessarily any of those, ( well maybe damon ). It's Lex afterall. IMO you need a proven actor that has the chops to pull him off.

If it's Matt Damon, I have $20 on Kevin Smith being cast as the Penguin.
