  • Cryer is perhaps best known for his role in the sitcom Two and a Half Men, where he also appeared alongside Paula Marshall, who portrays Iris West on The Flash.
  • He portrayed Lex Luthor's nephew, Lenny Luthor, in the 1987 DC film, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace.
    • According to Cryer himself, he stated that the film's less than sterling reputation was half the reason he accepted the role, alongside his love of the first Superman movie and the comics, as he wanted the opportunity to do the Luthor name justice, which he accomplished as his portrayal of Luthor was praised by critics, particularly over that of Jesse Eisenberg in the DCEU films.
  • Cryer was also in the DC animated series Justice League Action, where he lent his voice as the supervillain sorcerer, Felix Faust.
