Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer Shocked by Co-Star’s Meltdown

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS, Gossip,

Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. JonesAshton Kutcher and Jon Cryer were shocked by Angus T. Jones' meltdown.

The 19-year-old actor - who stars on Two And A Half Men with Ashton and John - launched a tirade against the sitcom calling it "filth" in a video with his church pastor and while Jon was surprised, he felt living through former co-star Charlie Sheen's falling out with creator Chuck Lorre left him better prepared for it than Ashton.

"It is surreal to be part of several internet s**t storms. When the latest one happened Ashton came up to me and he looked like he had seen a ghost and he was like, 'Did you hear about Angus?' and I was like, 'He is ok?' He said, 'Sort of,' and he showed me the video. And as I said having become a veteran of the internet s**t storm afterward I just looked at Ashton and said, 'Well do you think he still wants to go in on the crew gift?' It's just been one after the other. My life has taken a lot of strange turns. Mostly I'm just glad everybody is still alive," Jon said.

Miley Cyrus Impressed on Two and a Half Men

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS, Gossip,

Miley Cyrus and Ashton Kutcher in 'Two and a Half Men'Miley Cyrus was "on fire" when she filmed Two and a Half Men.

The singer-and-actress recently made a cameo appearance in the sitcom and though the show's star Jon Cryer wasn't initially confident she would be a success, he was thrilled when she stepped in front of the camera and nailed her part:

"She plays a motor-mouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. She was lovely, and we had a great time. All week, she was on book [looking at the script] which is understandable. But even when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book. We were thinking, 'Oh no, Miley better bring it!' And then we did it in front of the audience, and Miley brought it! Miley was just on fire and fantastic."

Miley recently had her hair cut into a daring short crop and Jon thinks her new look is fantastic. "I know her haircut is very controversial, but I lay on the side of 'I love it.' I think she looks fantastic," he said.


Modern Family Sweeps Board at Emmys

The Modern Family cast at the Emmys

Modern Family swept the board at the Emmy Awards last night winning four prizes. The sitcom took home the top Comedy Series prize as well as gongs for Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, while the ABC show's helmer Steven Levitan won the Director award.

Psychological thriller Homeland upstaged some of the more established programs by winning four drama series honors including the main prize for the category and Series Actor and Actress in a Drama prizes for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Damian introduced himself to the audience as "one of those pesky Brits" and later admitted he thought Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has won the accolade three times, would be victorious in the category again this year.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS, Gossip, News, Rumors,

Charlie Sheen and Jon CryerJon Cryer believes Charlie Sheen's sacking from Two and a Half Men was an "awful thing to be part of."

The 46-year-old actor - who starred alongside Charlie before he was removed from the show after a public spat with its creator Chuck Lorre and calling Jon a "troll" - did not enjoy watching the troubled star leave the show and was "surprised" by how it happened.

"I never want to go through that again. It was an awful thing to be part of. I'm glad that some peace has come out of it. I was surprised with everything that went down."

Jon has now been joined by Ashton Kutcher on the show, and he reveals he has "worked hard" on the set of the comedy. He added to the KLTA morning show in Los Angeles: "Ashton was amazing. He took the roof off the place. The man works hard for the money. It's a lovely vibe."

He refused to divulge how Charlie's character Charlie Harper dies in the show but added it was "funny." The forthcoming season of Two and a Half Men featuring Ashton Kutcher comes to TV on September 19.
