Variety has published an interview with “Supergirl” executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner in which they discuss upcoming episodes of the series, Nia Nal’s story, and Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor. Here’s part of the interview…
Jon Cryer has been cast as Lex Luthor, which is an iconic character. Who is his version of the character?
Rovner: Epic. He’s so incredibly talented. His dramatization of Lex is grounded and emotional.
Queller: Hilarious. In our estimation, he’s the best Lex Luthor ever. We might be biased, but he’s the most masterful actor. He’s just exhilarating as Lex. I can’t overstate how thrilled we are with him.
Rovner: It’s a side of him I don’t think the audience has seen; I think they know him in much more different roles. He has fully embraced being Lex Luthor, and it’s transformative.
Queller: He’s powerful, he’s devious, he’s funny, he turns on a dime. His dynamic with Katie [McGrath, who plays his on-screen sister,] Lena, is just so great. We think the audience is going to go crazy when they see his performance.
