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"
This is a 1* Free Play on the Atlanta Falcons (@1:00 PM EST)
This game would have been top billing last season but is far off the radar this year with injuries and poor play has made it dog of a matchup. The Washington Redskins come off a 10-45 loss at home to the Kansas City Chiefs to sit at 3-10 SU and ATS. The Atlanta Falcons come off a narrow 21-22 loss at Green Bay to move to 3-10 SU and 5-8 ATS. While these teams’ records are the same its obvious that the Falcons are the better team here and should easily cover this spread. Atlanta has covered the spread in three straight games now and is showing some life. The Falcons won last year’s meeting 24-17 in Washington. The Redskins have lost five in a row and failed to cover the spread in any of those games. With Mike Shanahan looking to be on the chopping block and things in chaos with RG3 comments I don’t see this team as prepared as it should be. Lay the points with Atlanta.
