The good folks over at Batman-News have a source that has seen Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in the flesh. There has been plenty of filming over at the LexCorp set, and a source that spotted him claims to have the answer to the big question on everyone’s mind:
Is. He. Bald?
No. At least not yet.
Their source claims that Eisenberg doesn’t just have hair, but has lots of it. His hair is longer than usual, has been dyed dirty blonde, and it’s loose and wavy, as opposed to his usual curls. One possibility that the report doesn’t mention but, from that description, I think should be considered is that he is bald but that he’s wearing a wig- ala Gene Hackman’s Lex. The only reason I suggest this is due to the fact that his hair is longer than usual, and not a typical color for the actor so it likely looks a little awkward- like a wig would. Just a guess, though.
They also state that Eisenberg’s portrayal of Lex is very spastic and jittery, giving the impression he’s one of those guys who lives on Red Bulls.
