Jon Cryer -- Time on His Hands

2/1/2011 11:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Cryer has been involuntarily freed from pesky tasks like learning his lines on "Two and a Half Men" -- at least temporarily while Charlie Sheen figures out his life ... and there's an upside for his kid.

Jon picked up 10-year-old Charlie from school Monday in L.A.

They say the best things in life are free.  Good thing, because according to documents obtained by TMZ ... Cryer is losing $400,000 an episode while Charlie is MIA.

get real    

JOn.. Only 400k an episode? You need to ask for a raise if Sheen is getting 2 million an episode. You Deserve at least HALF of what he is getting.

It's so unfair that one person could be so selfish and spoiled that they can cost others so much money when they work just as hard if not harder. And THEY stay out of trouble. One of the true sick ways Hollywood works. If I were Cryer, I'd try my hardest to sue Charlie Sheen for every penny his screw ups are costing me. Sheen is a truely pathetic individual. I hope Cryer and the rest of the cast get brand new gigs soon. I for one, would support any project they got on pure 'principle' alone.

two cents    

Ok, I'm going to "go there". Does he wear a hair piece for the show? Wow, he looks to have aged 10 years in this pic.

Anyways, I hope they're back to work soon! They can carry the show without Sheen for right now. Have Rose kidnap Charlie and disappear for a while. Or run some Berta based storylines. I love Berta!

My thoughts here: How about going on with the show without Charlie. It is this man and the maid and the kid that makes the show what it is... On single every show all Charlie is doing is boozing or having sex with someone different. Berta and Cryer are the funny ones... and that kid.

I heard he gets paid anyway, as part of his contract he supposedly gets a half rate for every episode out of work.

He makes $400,000 a week...I'm sure he will be able to survive a couple of months...I'm not crying for him

$400,000...$400,000...whatever. He can't even afford the rent the Porn Star House and purchase a briefcase of cocain on that salary. Hell, he would only be able to write checks to pornstars for $3,000 or so. No wonder he doesn't live the Charlie Sheen lifestyle on that paltry sum.

jus say'n    

There are all sorts of story lines that could carry the show without Charlie. I like the Rose kidnapping thing - - - Charlie vacationing/working in Vegas with Cryer moving to Charlies room and letting Jake rent out rooms to College mates? Berta could move in? Jon Cryer and the writers are FAR too good to let Charlie's absence stand in the way of the show moving forward - - -

Yet another example of someone doing the right thing getting punished. I am sure Jon is not hurting financially but it has to feel like a knee to the groin when you can't work through no fault of your own. Heck, at least it gives Jon more time with his family and be the responsible parent like he probably always has unlike some others he works with.

Charlie should be MADE to pay ALL lost salaries.
