‘Smallville’ Star Michael Rosenbaum Would Like To Be Your Lex Luthor In ‘Man Of Steel 2′

Smallville

Smallville‘s Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum, made it abundantly clear on Twitter Wednesday that he is the absolutely most qualified actor to play Lex Luthor in the already-green-lit Man of Steel sequel. No other actors who have no hair or the ability to shave their heads — especially not Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, who Rosenbaum addressed by name — are worthy of the role, he proclaimed from his Twitter mountaintop.

The link in Rosenbaum’s tweet goes to a Buzzfocus article listing off potential Lexes. Rosenbaum tops the list, but also included are John Glover, who portrayed Lex’s dad Lionel on Smallville; Cranston; Jon Hamm, who showed up as Lex in a pretty terrific Funny or Die video a few years ago, and a handful of other bald and non-bald actors.

One does have to wonder what sort of reaction, if Rosenbaum does reprise the role, Lex would have to encountering a Superman who is not Tom Welling, doesn’t wear a goofy-looking red leather jacket and refuses to answer to the name “The Blur.” That’d be confusing for anybody.
