No comments

Superman’s greatest foe has finally joined the cast of Supergirl. Two and a Half Men actor Jon Cryer will appear in the CW series as Lex Luthor.

Luthor will make his first appearance in the 15th episode of this season. He will be a recurring character moving forward, likely setting up a major storyline.

Cryer is no stranger to the Luthor’s. He played Lenny Luthor, nephew of Lex, in Superman IV: A Quest For Peace. That appeared to be a selling point for Cryer, as was pointed out by Supergirl executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller:

“Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV brings an added layer of legacy to his casting. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family.”

They went on to discuss that Cryer was the perfect fit to portray the iconic Superman villain:

“We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor.”
