Kevin Spacey Courted for Lex Luthor Role

Kevin Spacey Latino Review says Kevin Spacey is the front-runner to play Lex Luthor in Bryan Singer's upcoming "Superman" film. According to the site, Spacey recently joined "Superman" star Brandon Routh for a screen test and the results were really quite nice.

"So the part belongs to Spacey if he wants it and if he and his reps can come to an agreement, Kevin Spacey will be the next 'Lex Luther [sic]: the greatest criminal mind of our time!', says Latino Review's anonymous (and exclamatory!) source.

Not to be outdone, says an agreement has, in fact, been reached and Spacey will take on the Luthor role. The source of this "confirmation" isn't known, so make sure you keep that grain of salt handy.
