Jon Cryer -- "Jazzed" About Future of "Men"

5/14/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Cryer still has a job -- thanks in no small part to Ashton Kutcher -- and from the sound of things ... he's quite happy about it.

The "Two and a Half Men" star made his first comments yesterday about Ashton coming on board, joking, "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."

Cryer said he is "jazzed" the show is coming back -- and, despite all the recent upheaval, thanked Charlie Sheen, saying, "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."

Cryer is great, but Aston is a no talent boy toy of a weird actress. He cannot pull off any part in this great show. I get the creeps just seeing him and his plastic mommy wife.

Ashton will do an ok job. I thought Vince Vaughan could have played Sheen's role on the show really well though.

That's right...it took Charlie Sheen to save "Spin City". So what does that tell ya? The funniest thing about the revamped show will be casting A$$ton to replace Sheen.

There is no replacing Sheen. I'm sure they'll try to make this more of a "spinoff" show of TAAHM, but spinoffs rarely succeed (with exception of Fraiser, but Grammer is funny and talented). Thank goodness for reruns.

To all I say "grab the popcorn and gather around the tv screen, because this show will sink faster than the Titanic."

With all the problems Charlie Sheen has he is still WAY BETTER than Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher is a clueless idiot. The show won't last a half season.

Of course the kutcher is going to be making less than Charlie Sheen, he isn't nearly so greedy!

I like Jon Cryer, but, it's going to be three weeks of dwindling high ratings and then . . . KERPLUNK! Charlie sent a nice congratulatory tweet to Ashton, CBS and WB. Still, he knows TAAHM will tank without him and so does everybody else.

Charlie Sheen rocks! He's going to move on to even greater success.

@ margaret ramsey
He doesn't have to buy women or coke, support a couple self-ruined homes/kids, keep lawyers on the payroll to keep himself afloat, either. lol All his own doing, of course.

Ashton's the winner!

Jon has ALWAYS been a class act.

Not once did he attack or make fun of one of the biggest morons in T.V. history. Not once did he reveal any behind the scenes details.

Chuckles the Crack Head Clown should be forever grateful to Jon Cryer for not throwing him under the bus when he had the perfect opportunity to do so.

But then chuckles has never been grateful for anything...so I won't hold my breath.

TAHAM...ROCK ON! Love Ashton.

The show is over without Charlie Sheen. Ashton does not have the comedic persona that can match Charlie and the original cast. People will watch the first one or two episodes before moving on to something more interesting. Wanna bet?

The only thing in Chuckles future is a TOE TAG. Get real Agent Blonde...but then your post have never been steeped in reality have they? I see you FINALLY got your greatest wish...to get a photo op with you God CHUCKLES THE CRACK HEAD CLOWN. Hold on to it, if it has a signature? It will be worth a lot more here shortly :).

Someone said that no one has ever rep-laced a lead actor and survived? Remember Spin City? The ratings were stable after Michael J. Fox was forced to retire and replaced by Sheen.

This show was getting stale. This could be fun.

Kelso is 15 years younger than Charlie Harper ... and Kelso isn't a grown up ... neither on stage or in real life. Charlie Harper was definately older and more mature. This will NEVER work.

Spin City did alright after they replaced Michael J. Fox with, strangely enough, Charlie Sheen.
===================================================

You're both forgetting Kirsty Alley on CHEERS replacing Shelly Long. That show also had a GREAT ensemble cast, as does TAAHM...

Ashton will be great in any part Lorre writes...see you're all forgetting ITS THE WRITING that brings out the talent any good actor will tell you that.

TAAHM will be watched by everyone who stopped watching BECAUSE of Chuckles behavior and NEW fans will be picked up to watch Ashton.

WIN, WIN!
