Jon Cryer to Recur As Lex Luthor on Season 4 of Supergirl

The CW has finally found its Lex Luthor!

Former Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer has been cast in the iconic role and is set to first appear in the 15th episode of the shows 4th season.

"We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor," Supergirl exec producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller said in a joint statement Friday. "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."

The last time Lex Luthor appeared on the small screen was of course on Smallville, where he was famously played by Michael Rosenbaum.
