Supergirl continues Mondays 8:30pm AEDT


Emmy-winning Two and a Half Men actor, John Cryer, will take on the iconic villain Lux Luthor in CW superhero drama, Supergirl.

Cryer will first appear in the 15th episode of season 4 of Supergirl, scheduled to air sometime in 2019.

Supergirl executive producers, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller, believe they cast the perfect actor for the role, stating;

“We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer. Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV brings an added layer of legacy to the casting,”

“We are beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family.”

Last month CW announced that Supergirl would introduce Lex Luthor in the current season.

“We’re beyond excited to introduce the iconic villain to Supergirl and weave him into our story,” Rovner and Queller said in a joint statement in October.

“We’ve talked about having Lex on the show since its inception, and we’re excited to have him finally arrive.”

With the addition of Lex Luthor arriving in Supergirl, is also the addition of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane.

While Lois Lane and Superman will return for the December Arrow-verse crossover, Lex will not be included in the annual event.
