    Wow Jim Caviezel would be a left field choice. I'd certainly give him a shot. He's played a bad guy before in Deja Vu but I'd actually like to see how he'd look bald. Also Michael Emerson would make a good Toyman too.

    Alec Baldwin would be an interesting pick. I think he could pull off the crooked businessman role perfectly.

    I agree with this choice, but I thought they were going to aim for an Oscar winner ala Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner? Wasn't there a report saying so?

    I would say Baldwin is pretty well respected, and he is a an Oscar nominee and multiple Emmy winner.

    repost:

    I don't get Billy Zane. Because he's bald? Because of Demon Knight? Is "aging male model" Lex's go-to look? Seems random.

    They're probably going to get a big name or a heralded character actor or a rising star, not a D lister. Baldwin's typical persona isn't how I envision Lex, but hes good enough to go against type and come up with something interesting. Not the worst suggestion.

    I've said it before. Jason Clarke.

    He's going to be in big demand when 2015 rolls around thanks to his starring role in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'.

    He has the rough but refined edge that Luthor needs. Look at those stone cold eyes. You can really get a sense of brutality and cold calculating genius.

    Talk about shooting high. Maybe not possible but would be awesome.

    As executive producer, Chris Nolan should give Leo a call. :)

    I think it's mostly because he resembles Clancy Brown's Justice League cartoon version of Lex. I like that version the best. Plus he has the perfect voice and a distinct face.

    Now that Batman will be in this, I assume Bruce Wayne will be, too. Which means Lex HAS to be in it (if it wasn't obvious before the BatSup announcement). Which means take a page from Lex Luthor: Man of Steel (chracterization, as well as Bruce/Lex scenes).

    I'm going to go with the obvious.

    Bruce Willis. I also like Ed Harris.

    That would be fairly amazing, but we would be talking about a slightly different character.

    Cranston for Jim Gordon.

    And also the presence to play someone like Luthor...

    Very believable for the part of someone whos a billionaire tycoon who has fooled the world.


    For the longest time I wanted Vincent D'Onofrio for the part, but I think that time has passed.
