Never liked this guy in anything. Hate that smug, yet nerdy look he always carries.

Smug and Nerdy are basically all he can do acting wise

Nerdy - 30 Minutes or Less, Zombieland, Adventure Land

Arrogant and smug - Now you see me, the Social Network, The Double etc

You can take all his roles and put them in these two categories

I'm with you on that, EXCEPT for The Social Network. That is like a 9.9999999999999/10 film.

Lex should just be some internet troll that spams the Daily Planet online. Perfect 21st-century Lex Luthor.
