5 bald Major Leaguers who would make a better Lex Luthor than Jesse Eisenberg

The Internet spent its Wednesday afternoon sharing this: The first official photograph of actor Jesse Eisenberg as villain Lex Luthor in the forthcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film.

No offense to Zack Snyder and the DC Entertainment folks, but if we're gonna let Khal Drogo play Aquaman and cast Daredevil as Batman, we might as well open up the audition process to include the one true Dark Knight and these five bald baseball stars for the role of Luthor:

Anthony Rizzo


Though, bald or not, it's tough for us to imagine a super villain tweeting to raise funds for kids with cancer.

Albert Pujols


If his MVP Awards are actually made of Kryponite, Superman would be in for one tough battle.

Nate Schierholtz


Entering his ninth season in MLB, Schierholtz -- now with the Rangers -- has played for six teams ... and been bald on all of them.

Jon Lester


The sides could use a trim, but he looks awfully comfortable in that suit and tie, and Luthor is known for his boardroom attire.

Brian McCann


The master thespian of the Yankees is a man who was born to play Lex Luthor.
