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...

"Wow that'd work too."
1* Utah (9:05 ET): Regardless of how Utah performs Monday night in LA (facing the Lakers), it appears as if this line will be way too low. Most rating systems, including my own, would have the Jazz laying double digits here. The Suns, fresh off giving up 138 pts to the Warriors on Saturday (I had the Over!) are as bad as ever and I say lay the pts.
The Jazz are down some key contributors, such as George Hill and Derrick Favors. Not to mention, Alec Burks hasn't even suited up this year. But the team keeps on winning, as in five of their last six w/ the only defeat coming by a single point to Miami. Defensively, they have a clear edge here over Phoenix. While the Suns allow 115.2 PPG on the road, the Jazz allow just 91.8 PPG at home. Needless to say, these teams find themselves on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of defensive efficiency; Utah is fourth while Phoenix is 21st.
These teams met four times last year and Utah won every time. Three of the games were decided by double digits and the fourth was a nine-point game. Phoenix never scored more than 89 pts in any of the four games. The Jazz are more formidable this season and will have an even more distinct edge if Hill returns Tuesday night. Plus, they have Gordon Hayward, who averages a strong 23.1 PPG here in Salt Lake City. I know it was Golden State, but giving up as many points as Phoenix did Saturday is pretty unforgivable. 1* Utah
