Jon Cryer's Thoughts On Ashton Replacing Charlie

| Filed under: TV NewsAshton KutcherCharlie Sheen


Now that we've heard what Charlie Sheen has to say about Ashton Kutcher replacing him on Two and a Half Men, we've gotta wonder….what does Jon Cryer think about his new co-star??

Jon says that he's absolutely "jazzed" to work on the show with Ashton. Here's what else he had to say:

"For all the rest of the cast and crew I'm sure they are equally excited. I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. I'm extremely proud of the work we've done together, and I will miss him — but I'm also looking forward to this new beginning.

Ashton is an extraordinarily talented guy, and his presence will be an asset to our show. We are old friends from our male modeling days, and we're both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty."

LOLz. Glad he can still have a sense of humor about this whole thing.

We're sure he's just relieved he doesn't have to deal with Charlie anymore!

    Better rename this show 2 and a half weeks. Aston sucks as an actor. Thet are better off with Hugh Grant.

  2. 2

    Go Jon!!! I love you since Pretty in Pink :)

  3. 3

    What the heck is he going to say . . . gee this sucks?

  4. 4

    Enjoy the Satanist.

  5. 5

    Love Jon Cryer!!! I love him on 2.5 and he was the reason I ever tuned in to watch it. He is just hysterically funny to me.

  6. 6

    I'll never watch again. That would be like replacing Jerry on Seinfeld. Never gonna work. Same as The Office. Steve Carrel made the show. Ashton should stick to camera commercials. Besides, do you think the cast of 2 1/2 wants Demi hangin' around all day? Bottom line—show is ova!

    Maybe now Cryer can be given a chance to do more, as he did when the show first started. Charlie became so overpowering a presence that Cryer, Holland, etc. had little to do but react.

  8. 8

    i heart jon cryer.

  9. 9

    You don't speak for Jon Cryer, or anyone else for that matter.

  10. 10

    Classy comments as opposed to the classless comments Charlie made about Jon.

    I love two and a half man… But i'm a little nervous to see how they make it work to put Ashton on the show…Will he "be" Charlie Harper…or si Charlie dying/leaving or so and he'll be a new character….????
    Can't wait to see it. I'm sure that if they wortk it out (the introduction of Ashton to the show) it can be great. He IS funny AND sexy…more realistic to see someone who looks lie Ashton to have that popularity wiith the ladies.. Charlie Sheen was funny but … he was never sexy….

    Just my opinion people!

    PS: sorry if i have some mistakes in my grammar…. I'm foreing…. =)

    Re: 14istheluckynumber
    I heart you!!!

    This will be the end of 2.5……ashton is a horrendous comedic actor….he is the absolute worst that could happen to the show….RIP!!

    hahaha i love john cryer. also excited about ashton replacing charlie.

  14. 14

    I stop watching that show long time ago because Charlie but now with this replacement , I would give a second try !!! Aston seems much more real as a playboy than the other that look like nasty old man !

    "Extraordinarily talented"??? Is he joking??? The best acting job he has ever had is that of Demi Moore's boy toy. You know she's going to be a guest star as one of his "love interests". Could they not have found a bigger douche bag??? Was Spencer Pratt busy???

    its all about the writing, if the writing is good then the show has a chance! i am excited about ashton even though i was never a fan of his. i am excited to see how the writers play this all out - and of course very curious to see how ashton does. not to mention i am glad they replaced sheen with a younger, hotter, super star like ashton — its not an obvious replacement which makes me think they are thinking way out of the box on the script! i cant wait to watch!

    Jon Cryer is a good sport and a good actor. I thought 2.5 sucked… it jumped shark long ago. i could never buy that charlie harper was getting THAT much play from dumb chicks in hollywood. Ashton gettin some will be more believable, but i hope they write better scripts that the trash they've written. All the characters got creepy and blech… anyway… I'm glad to hear that the crew gets to keep their gig as they do not make the cheddar that the cast did and will…

  18. 18

    I wish Jon would stop bending over for Charlie. Don't be extra nice to people who treat you badly. Much success to the new cast. I never saw a one episode before all this and still won't but knock the ratings out of the park!!

  19. 19

    I hope you run into Charlie at an event that you usually crash and he beats the shit out of you!

  20. 20

    all I can say is "hey Ashton get your sexy butt over her and let's get the show on the road and get the laughs coming. I need to get my laugh on"!

    Oh wow TRIPLE burn on Charlie Sheen: He has been REPLACED
    1. With someone younger;
    2. With someone hotter; AND
    3. All Sheen's negativity is TURNING MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER ONTO THE SHOW !!!
    Maybe Sheen will finally hit bottom when he realizes what a stupid loser he has been due to drugs and alcohol and cheap sex with paid prostitutes…probably not but there is always hope…

    I watched 2.5 because of Jon Cryer. He is funnier than Charlie. I'm not sure that Ashton fits into 2.5. I think he is too young for that. Maybe in one episode his wife Demi will come as a guest star such as their mother's younger sister, or as their mother's colleague. I'm not too excited about Ashton K. in 2.5.

  24. 24

    Love the show but I give it another year without Charlie

  25. 25

    Dear Charlie, This is what is commonly referred to as CLASS. Although I generally consider that a foul word, I can't find a word that expresses the thoughtfulness and consideration that Mr. Jon Cryer showed in regards to you. However, my thoughts are…remember $1.2 MILLION per week?????

    Re: heathers_list_dot_net – lol exactly.

    I just have the feeling this is a very very bad idea. Not going to work, especially with kutcher.

    Forgot to mention that I thought Oliver Platt was a perfect fit for a replacement. CBS is not a young person's net, therefore, Uncle Oliver as the replacement as Charlie's long deceased father, and Evelyn's nemesis. Can you imagine Bert's LUST???? Why in the world didn't they call me for an opinion?
