Jon Cryer Expresses ‘Enormous Gratitude’ to Charlie Sheen

“Two and a Half Men” star thanks his former castmate for “8 great seasons” while preparing to get back to work

Charlie Sheen might have put Jon Cryer out of work for a couple of months, but he's glad to have worked with him nonetheless.

Following news that "Dude, Where's My Car?" actor Ashton Kutcher was joining the cast of "Two and a Half Men," thus ending the the two-month hiatus that Sheen's ouster spurred, Cryer stated on Friday that he's "jazzed" to be getting back to work — and heaped praise on his troubled former co-worker.

"I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for 8 great seasons," Cryer enthused in statement. "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."

As for his new castmate, Cryer characterized Kutcher as "an extraordinarily talented guy" whose "presence will be an asset to our show."

He also revealed — perhaps in a joking manner — that he and Kutcher had worked in the same circles before.

"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,” Cryer noted.
