Jon Cryer: Charlie Sheen’s Sacking Was Awful

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.

Ashton Kutcher Taking Charlie Sheen’s Place on ‘Men’

Ashton Kutcher

Reports are circulating that CBS has finally found an actor to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men: Ashton Kutcher.

Though, admittedly, we haven’t completely confirmed that we’re not being Punk’d.

Not that Kutcher hasn’t got sitcom chops. He first came to attention on That '70s Show, opposite the likes of Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, and others whose careers didn’t fare so well. Kutcher’s character will be brand-new and he’ll be introduced in the show’s next season.

Unless a torpedo of truth puts a halt on the production…again.

Is CBS Trying to Get Charlie Sheen Back?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS, Gossip, Rumors,

Charlie Sheen WinningWe never thought we’d say this, but maybe Charlie Sheen really is winning. According to reporter Jeff Rossen, CBS has asked him to come back to Two and a Half Men.

Feel free to do a spit take now. Rossen says “discussions ongoing” and it’s “not a done deal.” And, he’s not the only one who’s reporting on the negotiations. Hollywoodlife found a “show insider” who says the rumors are true.

They might be, at that. CBS is in the business of making money, and Sheen is making it hand over fist with his sold-out comedy tour/stage thing. Recent rumors that Sheen has been talking to FOX about doing a show may have prompted the network to act.

Still, things could get a little sticky legally if CBS does want to make a deal. Charlie Sheen still has an active lawsuit, asking for a whopping $100 million, against Two and a Half Men studio Warner Bros.

Rob Lowe to Stay with ‘Parks,’ Won’t Join CBS for ‘Men’

Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation

Keep him on NBC, whatever it takes! The executive producer of Amy Poehler-powered Parks and Recreation has stepped forward to refute Internet rumor that Rob Lowe will take over for the recently-fired Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

And thank goodness. Lowe’s hilarious Parks character has made the show better than ever in season 3. Producer Michael Schur says there is “no truth” to the rumors whatsoever that Lowe will move from NBC over to CBS.

We hear they’re getting sued, anyway, so maybe it’s best to stay off the Warner Bros. lot for now.

Charlie SHeenTwo and a Half Men fans needn’t fear for the future of their show: Charlie Sheen says it’s coming back. And in case you haven’t heard, the man’s got “tiger’s blood,” so we’re pretty sure he’s in a position to make this sort of statement.

Charlie Sheen gave the news to Wired 96.5 in Philadelphia while speaking with personalities Chio and Shila. “Absolutely the gig’s coming back, I have absolute faith in that.” And who are we to argue with absolute faith?

“My super powers are blowing it up completely,” Sheen continued. “I think we’re winning this morning.” Well, when you put it that way…

Charlie Sheen Rant Cancels Two and Half Men Production

Charlie Sheen isn’t finished with the Two and Half Men producers -- not by a long shot. The troubled actor engaged in a well-publicized rant against the minds behind his CBS show in which he called Chuck Lorre a “stupid, stupid little man,” along with a few other things.

CBS immediately canceled production of the show for the reminder of the season, and potentially all eternity. Sheen, who is currently in the Bahamas, turned to TMZ again to respond to the news. In an open letter, he said Lorre “tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me.”
