Who Will Play Lex Luthor?
So, Ben Affleck is Batman. There are greater tragedies in life. Perhaps "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder can atone for his sins and cast a fan favorite in the role of super villain Lex Luthor, who has been played by guys like Kevin Spacey and Gene Hackman in the past.
Bryan Cranston (+400)
Fresh of the final season of "Breaking Bad", Cranston could jump right into the role of Luthor. He's got the acting range and the comic wit to pull off Superman's arch-nemesis.
Mark Strong (+600)
Strong is no stranger to playing the bad guy and has already got a foot in the door of the DC Universe, playing good guy-turned-bad Sinestro in "Green Lantern". That may work against him if they want to tie everything into a "Justice League" movie.
Mackenzie Gray (+700)
Gray was in "Man of Steel", playing the role of Jax-Ur, one of Krypton's baddies. He also played an aged Lex Luthor clone in the Superman TV series "Smallville". Not sure how they pull this off, but he's high on the list.
Alexander Skarsgard / Mads Mikkelsen (+1,000)
Skarsgard has risen to fame in the vampire series "True Blood" while Mikkelsen is best known as the blood-crying bad guy in the Bond flick "Casino Royale" and taking on the role of Hannibal Lecter in the TV series "Hannibal".
Jason Isaacs / Billy Zane (+1,200)
Billy Zane gets a nod simply because he pulls off the bald head so easily. Plus he was a total dick in "Titanic". Isaac is better known as "Lucius Malfoy" from the Harry Potter franchise but has connections to DC, stemming from voice work in Batman and Green Lantern cartoons. Smell that value.
John Malkovich can be had at +1,400, if you think Luthor should feed on the dreams of small children. Liam Neeson and his "special set of skills" are priced at +1,600, and Jeff Bridges - AKA The Dude - is listed at +1,700. He'd really tie the movie together, man...

"Ben Kingsly for Lex ???....Sorry SIR Ben Kingsly.......................If not him my money's on Steve-O"
1* Chi Cubs (2:20 ET): Though I had an outstanding Thursday overall, the Cubs still made me look foolish as they finished a sweep of the Mets. I was on the wrong side in every game of the series as the Cubs finish the year a perfect 7-0 vs. NY. (Remember still up for the week). Friday afternoon finds me recommending the Cubbies in an "about face."
Actually, it was nothing against the Cubs as to why I continued to play against them throughout the week. But rather, the Mets were at home and had revenge for a four-game sweep that took place in Wrigley Field earlier this year. Chicago has had its issues offensively of late, but they did bust loose for six runs yday. Of course those offensive issues didn't matter when you give up all of one run in the entire series.
Pitching today for the Cubs will be Jason Hammel, who somehow is just 1-0 in six home starts despite a 2.20 ERA and 0.927 WHIP. For the second time in three starts, he's coming off an outing where he lasted just four innings. But both were on the road. In between was a brilliant outing where he allowed just two hits in 7+ scoreless innings here at Wrigley. His counterpart, Tom Koehler of the Marlins, has a 6.45 ERA and 1.593 WHIP on the road this season. Miami just did the Cubs a favor by sweeping the Giants (Wild Card race), but their run ends here. 1* Chi Cubs
