Michael Rosenbaum Praises Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor Performance
Who can give a fair opinion on Lex Luthor’s character better than… a former Lex Luthor himself? After Supergirl’s last episode, Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum took to Twitter to compliment fellow actor Jon Cryer for his debut as Lex Luthor. Cryer just made his first appearance in CW’s Arrowverse as Clark Kent’s nemesis, and – in Rosenbaum’s words – he “killed it.” Moreover, Rosenbaum praised Cryer’s “dome” too.
Jonny boy! You killed it! And they say I had a good head. That’s a perfect dome brother. Congrats Lex. Love, Lex! @MrJonCryer @TheCW @TheCWSupergirl By the way… you’re on my podcast Tuesday. Lots to talk about! Lex and Life! Tell your folks to subscribe. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/iaQXnrRvWJ

Previously, Rosenbaum portrayed Lex Luthor on Smallville for the first seven seasons, beginning in 2001. Fans and critics championed Rosenbaum’s performance as the classic Superman villain, and now he is considered one of the best live-action Lex Luthors.
The next episode of Supergirl, titled “The House of L,” will air on March 24 and is described as follows:
“LEX LUTHOR CONTINUES TO WREAK HAVOC — In the wake of Lex Luthor’s (guest star Jon Cryer) return, the show flashes back to what he’s been doing for the last two years and how his secret machinations and plans have affected Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Lena (Katie McGrath). Carl Seaton directed the episode written by Dana Horgan & Eric Carrasco (#416). Original airdate 3/24/2019.”
