Jesse Eisenberg should be Jimmy Olsen.

Does anybody else think Jesse Eisenberg would make a great, or at least better, Jimmy Olsen or Toy Maker in the upcoming sequel?

Nope. Jimmy is happy-go-lucky and always energetic. Even if we are typecasting Jesse as 'that actor who plays awkward teenagers', then the answer is still no.

@rdclip: He still looks and sounds young, wouldn't it be easier to pull off Toy Maker than Lex Luthor.

Lex Luthor was never a young man?

This is a new take on the Superman mythos. Henry Cavill wasn't trying to ape Chris Reeve. Jesse Eisengerg shouldn't try to ape Gene Hackman or Clancy Brown.

Once you mention it, yea! I could easily see him pulling off a great Jimmy Olson.

After I think about if they go the Mad Scientist route of Lex Luthor for a movie I think Eisenberg would also make a great Toy Maker.
