The casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice took a lot of fans by surprise.
Not only is he a bit younger than the traditional casting (Lex was previously played by Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey), but he also doesn't have the villain's iconic bald pate.
In fact, he has kind of the opposite- a head full of thick, curly hair!
He actually grew his hair longer!
Apparently this Lex has long, wavy, dirty blonde hair, even longer than Jesse naturally wears it!
The source also says the actor is pumping up the energy to look like an (even more) spastic, nervous genius! Sounds like his Mark Zuckerberg kicked up a notch!
