Jon Cryer, who once played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV: A Quest for Peace, is all grown up now and set to portray Lex Luthor in The CW's Supergirl, starting with episode 15 of season 4.
"We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor," said "Supergirl" executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. "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."
Luthor's appearance on Supergirl coincides with other new arrival to the Supergirl universe Lois Lane. Superman will also be returning to the fourth season, which debuted October 14.
