In keeping with the apparent theme of casting actors whose presence just don’t match the characters they’re meant to be portraying: the role of Lex Luthor in the next Superman flick has now been filled.

Lex Luthor: A manipulative mastermind. A hugely successful industrialist. A brilliant businessman apparently born to be both the brains and figurehead of a multinational mega corporation. A man whose actions got him all the way to the White House. A man who is as charming and commanding as he is evil and power-hungry.

A man being played by Jesse Eisenberg, the weedy guy that played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network……and whose voice sounds like a duck being raped by a chipmunk.

It could work.  I keep going back to those deposition scenes in Social Network.  The guy played a role requiring him to be the coldest, most manipulative and smartest person in a room full of presumably smart, educated men, and he knew it.  That's who Lex Luthor is.  So while he may not have the physique of the cartoon version, (which hasn't always been the physical manifestation of Luthor), you still have the intellectual prowess and cold, calculating character traits that I think have always been the real threat to Superman, as he can't compete physically and never has.

The same could be said for anyone who's not Kevin Spacey.

Yeah, but who's to say. Maybe he gave a good audition tape. Also, lex Luther's description   sounds perfect for Jessie Eisenberg.

Ok, now I'm convinced that casting wise, the filmmakers are just pulling names out of a hat and sticking without whoever gets pulled out of said hat.

Keep in mind, no one thought that Ledger would be a good fit for the Joker.

I'm not the best with names of actors i don't give a damn about.
