Jon Cryer Welcomes Kutcher, Praises Sheen In Statement

Jon Cryer on Friday released a statement in which he welcomed Ashton Kutcher to Two and a Half Men while offering a bit of praise to his former co-star of eight seasons Charlie Sheen.

Here’s Cryer’s statement:

“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.

“I’m jazzed about the news this morning that Two and a Half Menis coming back! For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited.”

Wow, Cryer is definitely more gracious than his former co-star.
