Jon Cryer has been cast as Lex Luthor in CW’s “Supergirl.”
The move marks a return to Cryer series television, which won two Primetime Emmy Awards for his work on the long-standing CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men.”
Cryer comes back on Warner Bros. Television superhero drama like Luthor, the classic crook of the Superman series, television shows and movies. He will make his first “Supergirl” appearance in the upcoming 1
5th episode of the current and fourth season of the show.
The actor played Lenny Luthor, the son of Gene Hackmans Lex, in the 1987 feature “Superman IV: A Quest for Peace.”
“We are huge fans of Jon Cryer, and he was immediately our dream actor to play Lex Luthor’s iconic role, “says Supergirl executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. “Jon is a super talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV gives an extra layer of legacy to his casting. We are excited to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family.”
Cryer recently finished production on the “Big Time Adolescence” feature with Pete Davidson. He is represented by Forward Entertainment, UTA, and lawyer David Fox. He played Alan Harper on Warner Bros.-produced “Two and a Half Men” from 2003 to 2015. He has spared sparingly in television roles since the series ended, with guest roles at “Mom”, “The Ranch”, “NCIS, “And” Will & Grace. “
