Jon Cryer has been cast in the role of villain Lex Luthor in CW’s Supergirl.
Cryer, 53,- who previously won two Primetime Emmy Awards for his role in the CBS comedy series Two and a Half Men – is set to star as the iconic villain in the Warner Bros. Television series
The show’s executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller explained: ‘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.’
Fans of supergirl have been waiting for the character to appear for a long time, especially since one of the fan favorites is Lena Luthor (played by Katie McGrath), who happens to be Lex’s sister.
