Nov 16, 2018

‘Supergirl’ has found their Lex Luthor!

‘Two And A Half Men’ star Jon Cryer will recur as Lex starting in episode 15. This isn’t the first Luthor that Cryer has played, either. He previously starred as Lenny Lutor, Lex’s nephew, in ‘Superman 4: The Quest For Peace.’  Check out what executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller had to say below.

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

Cryer won two Emmy awards for his role on ‘Two And A Half Men,’ and just wrapped filming on a new project with SNL star Pete Davidson.
