Fans Finally Able To Fan-Cast Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor After Shaving Head

First look at Eisenberg's shaved dome as Lex Luthor.

Ask almost any fan to fantasy cast a role like Lex Luthor and they will give you a laundry list of actors that are already bald 99% of the time.  When curly headed Jesse Eisenberg was cast, heads exploded.  It was almost like someone cast the guy that used to play the dad in Malcom in the Middle - someone you could never picture with a shaved head.

Fortunately, Entertainment Weekly offered up a first look at Eisenberg's Lex Luthor, finally enabling fans to picture the mop-top actor playing a role of a bald character:


Thank goodness for that.  I was worried for a moment that not everyone had the ability to shave their head.

Snyder also dropped a few tidbits on the character:

He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course...  Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
