Bryan Cranston, the man seen by most fans as THE man to play Lex Luthor on screen, has finally spoken about the role. In an interview this morning on The Howard Stern Show the Breaking Bad star revealed that while he would have loved to play the villain, he was never asked to do so.
When asked about the rumours he had this to say:
In the minds of fans, it's true, in the minds of the hierarchy of Warner Brothers, it's not true. I was not involved in any of that whatsoever.
When asked about how the role would have effected his career, he described it as, "a twenty, it's a life changing role", one that he'd have loved to take on.
