Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has expressed his desire to play Lex Luthor in upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman.

The 57-year-old star revealed that he would love to play the iconic arch nemesis of Superman in the comic book franchise and has told producers to ''give me a call''.

Speaking to Metro US, Cranston said:  ''I like Lex Luthor. I think he's misunderstood. He's a loveable, sweet man.''

Bryan further revealed that his wife isn't a fan of his shaved head in Breaking Bad, adding: ''She wasn't so keen on the bald head. The bald head ages a man. It's just that she didn't know me that way, and the last six years it's all of a sudden like sleeping with a stranger - who was less exciting than her own husband. So I don't blame her for being upset.''

Batman vs. Superman is due for release in the summer of 2015.
