    After seeing some of his stuff, I'm convinced he'd be good. But he was on a talk show and he had a beer belly.......Lex doesn't have a beer belly. :hehe:

    You know, I was hoping for a younger actor this time around to play Lex but... f*** that, Meloni is so awesome I wouldn't care. Make it so.

    I don't think that's the case anymore. He has said in interviews how he likes to work out and he has looked different throughout the years. Most of the time he has looked in shape.

    I think it's still too early to be fully expecting him to be Lex since he could end up as a cop or DA or something like that. But I would be happy with him as Lex, though I hope he would also give out that "brilliant scientist" vibe as well as a tough guy/businessman type.

    Yeah, that would really bug me. I could live my whole life without ever seeing Sam Lane in anything.

    Great actor. I love Law & Order SVU. Before reading the comments on here my first thought was Lex.

    I guess I'm not alone in first reaction thinking Lex. Wonder if this weekend we will get something.

    Turpin is who I was thinking of. Him as Lex? That's an odd choice but I wouldn't mind. Perry's another option.

    If he's nabbed the role of Lex then I guess we have the real reason he left SVU. :( In truth though I can't see him as Lex.

    Agreed. Sam Lane is basically just a poor man's Thunderbolt Ross most of the time anyway IMO.

    He's also played a really good villain in several things too. He played a psycho on Oz, and a sleazeball criminal on NYPD Blue. He was excellent in these roles.

    It took me forever to release he didn't play Casey Jones.

    I don't think his leaving SVU was strictly because of The Man of Steel. He's had last second negotiations going on the last couple of times his contracts expire and it's usually a mere case of haggling.

    He has the humor for Perry (Check out Wet Hot American Summer...seriously go see it. It's great!) and the intensity for Lex. My guess is he's the latter.

    I can't post a link here, but he's hilarious as a hotel clerk in Fear and Loathing.

    Haha, yeah... that was his doppelganger Elias Koteas! Lex Luthor has a brother doesn't he? Maybe Koteas could play him in a sequel. It would just be cool to see them both in the same movie.

    Not my first, second, or even third choice for Lex, *if* he is Lex. In fact, I hadn't even thought of him for the role before, but you know what, I like it. ALOT.

    Isn't Inspector Henderson a lesbian female cop? Somehow I don't see Meloni in that role...

    I guess I could dig him as Lex, but even more so as Brainiac.
