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...

Hottest Prop Bets for the 58th Grammy Awards
The annual music awards show that honors the best in popular music is one of the biggest novelty prop events of the year. This year's show will heavily feature Taylor Swift, who's nominated for seven awards this year. And we think this just may be Tay-Tay's big year.

"Wow that'd work too."
Al McMordie's firing on Wednesday in Major League Baseball, as he's featuring a sweet play backed by a 92.3% situation, as well as a 56-17 angle. It's Big Al's MLB High Roller Winner. Al's High Rollers are on a 37-26 Run, so hop on board, and get the hardball cash!
At 10:10 pm, on Wednesday, our complimentary selection is on the Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners 'over' the total. There was much hype at the beginning of the season surrounding the pending debuts of a pair of Pirates pitching prospects, Jameson Taillon and Tyler Glasnow. But it was much lesser-known Chad Kuhl who stole the spotlight last week when he beat the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw in his MLB debut on National TV. And whereas Glasnow has yet to make his MLB appearance, the original hype around Taillon has waned amid his inconsistent performances of late. After a stellar eight-inning outing against the Mets in his second start, Taillon has thrown in a pair of almost identically-dull four-inning efforts against the Cubs and Dodgers. He will try to improve on that tonight in Seattle against one of the best offenses in the AL. LHP Wade Miley takes the mound for the M's and although he missed two starts while on the 15-day DL with a sore left shoulder, Miley threw four hit-less innings in a rehab start Friday for Class-A Everett. But the veteran southpaw has a 7.09 ERA in his last five starts. Finally, runs have not been a problem in Bucs games this season as the over is 47-29 when Pittsburgh plays. Take the 'over.' As always, good luck...Al McMordie. I'm on a 12-4 Baseball run (thru Monday's action), and am 352-256 my last 578. Join for a week or month today to get all of my award-winning plays.
