    Also though Renner's cameo in "Thor" was well known and covered. That seems to be the difference with this "story".

    The rumors surrounding Sam Jackson in Iron Man didn't come until very late into the production from what I remember.

    The comments about Cooper in the role of Lex echo pretty strongly with the comments made about Ledger as Joker when it was announced. And look how that turned out.

    ...or, closer to home, "let's turn Superman III into a Richard Pryor movie."

    That being said, Cooper doesn't seem like a bad actor. If he shaves his head and plays Lex as, well, Lex, I don't see a problem. If he goes on a "star trip," and insists on playing him with a full head of hair and a personality like an overgrown frat boy, that's a problem.

    ^ He doesn't strike me as that type of actor.

    Lex doesn't have to have a shaved head when we see him.

    If he wants I guess. It's up to Luthor :) I'm just saying that if we even see him in this at all or the sequel (which is more likely) he doesn't have to be bald when we do see him.

    I know he doesnt, but after Hackman, Shea and Spacey just once I'd like a Lex who is just plain bald.

    Other than Rosenbaum that is

    I would like to see a bald Lex as well. I was just making the point :)

    I don't know, he was around for 10 years before getting the part in The Hangover. And it's cool to see him do interviews in French. :)

    Can't believe I'm posting a comicbookmovie.com article...and it's ironic as well since they're actually debunking this rumour. LOL

    http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/GraphicCity/news/?a=52279

    They use a tweet to debunk it though...and I don't recognize the person except they say he is respected in the industry. LOL. Take it with a grain of salt. I also did a google search and some other sites have picked up the rumour now but haven't confirmed it.
