This season of Supergirl has been filled with nonstop action at every turn. While most fans are waiting for the Elseworlds event, the producers are already thinking ahead. One of Superman’s biggest villains will finally arrive, and they’ll be played by someone familiar with the DC property.

Moving On Up

Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer will take on the role of Lex Luthor. This won’t be Cryer’s first time playing a Luthor. In 1987, he portrayed Lex’s nephew Lenny in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. When it came to his casting, Supergirl producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller knew it was the right call.

Warner Bros.

“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,” they said in a joint statement.

Passing The Torch

When it comes to Lex Luthor, many fans point towards Michael Rosenbaum as delivering the perfect performance. Rosenbaum portrayed the character for seven seasons on Smallville. Upon hearing the news, Rosenbaum was delighted to see Cryer in the role. “Best of luck @MrJonCryer – Kill it pal,” he tweeted.

Cryer was simply overwhelmed by Rosenbaum’s support. “I can only aspire to be as good as @michaelrosenbum on Smallville. You redefined the role, sir. Thanks for the kind wishes. I won’t let you down,” Cryer tweeted.

Joining Forces Again

Cryer’s debut as Lex Luthor will arrive following the conclusion of the aforementioned Elseworlds event. The three-night event will bring the highly anticipated debut of Batwoman in the Arrowverse. It will also bring Gotham City into the mix. This will be the fifth crossover event in the Arrowverse.

Cryer will be seen in the upcoming comedy Big Time Adolescence, which debuts at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
