FIRST LOOK: Jon Cryer looks the part as Lex Luthor in next week’s Supergirl

March 8th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like, as we reported a couple of months ago (here), Jon Cryer is delivering as Lex Luthor in next week’s episode of Supergirl on The CW.

New images have appeared of the Two-And-A- Half Men actor in the iconic role and honestly, given that he’s best known as Alan n that comedy series, the transformation is impressive.

He seems to be hurt in the episode as he’s in a wheelchair… wanna bet he’s faking it? Cue him standing up at the end of the episode!

The synopsis of his first appearance episode is below… can he give the goods?

JON CRYER GUEST STARS AS ICONIC DC COMICS’ VILLAIN LEX LUTHOR

Secretly furloughed from prison due to failing health, Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) visits his sister, Lena (Katie McGrath), to seek her help finding a cure. Savvy as ever, Lena is suspicious of Lex’s motives but when she’s faced with a life and death situation, she must decide how she truly feels about her brother.

Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and J’onn (David Harewood) face off against Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala). James’ sister Kelly (guest star Azie Tesfai) comes to town.

Tawnia Mckiernan directed the episode written by Derek Simon & Nicki Holcomb.

Supergirl airs on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT, before episodes of Charmed on The CW. “O Brother Where Art Thou?” will premiere on March 17.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
