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"
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF...
PERFECT 4-0 NCAAF Saturday - PERFECT 2-0 NFL/NCAAF Thursday - SIZZLIN' 4-1 NFL Last Sunday.
It's all just "ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE" for The Iceman, who is widely recognized as one of the sharpest minds in the industry.
This is a Free #NFL play on the Dallas #Cowboys.
That’s right! I am going with the Cowboys again this week. Even though they disappointed in a home loss to San Francisco in Week 1, they still came out of that game with plenty of positives. They had more total yards, more first downs, and an edge in time of possession. They also held the 49ers scoreless in the second half.
Last week against Tennessee, we saw a power running game and a strong defense dominate an inferior opponent on the road. I think last week’s game gives us a more accurate look at what this team is all about. With DeMarco Murray running all over the opposition, we should expect a similar showing here in St. Louis this week. It’s important to note that Murray has punished the Rams throughout his career, averaging 218 yards per game against them.
The Rams were expected to be tough defensively this year, but there has been little indication of that in the first two weeks. They allowed Buccaneers backup Bobby Rainey to run for 144 yards on 22 carries last week.
Dallas QB Tony Romo still seems to be suffering rust (or lingering effects from off-season surgery), as he hasn’t looked sharp in the first two games. It’s reasonable to expect him to work himself back into shape as the season progresses, but regardless the visitors have the edge at the quarterback position with the Rams starting Austin Davis (third stringer).
If you though throwing for 235 yards in his debut against the Bucs was a good sign, perhaps you will be forced to reconsider after the Bucs were exposed in a 52-14 loss on Thursday night.
