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."

Jon is a classy guy. Love that the cast (minus Charlie) coming back. Excited & can hardly wait to see what they do with a new character (Ashton) in the mix.

A wise person knows when to say something and when not saying anything at all is best.

Jon Crier was wrongfully attacked by Charlie Sheen (who had the delusional belief that Jon Crier spoke ill of him)

Jon Crier did nothing to cause any of Charlie Sheen's problems, Jon Crier was wise enough to know to keep out of other peoples problems.

It is unfortunate that Charlie Sheen does not stop attacking his children's mothers, and former employers.

Charlie Sheen has destroyed his own opportunity with Warner Bros.

It was appropriate for Jon Crier to acknowledge Charlie Sheen's contribution to the past success of the show they were in-(which he did)

Jon Crier has his own career and family to care for. It is completely unreasonable to think Jon Crier "owes" Charlie Sheen anything beyond that acknowledgment.

Chris 4 hours ago 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.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

If the Sheenius is so much WAY BETTER, then he should have quit his immature whining AND BEGGING months ago. He does NOT need Lorre. Fly, buzzard, FLY on your own.
Why doesn't he have his OWN SHOW right now? :0
Why isn't he continuing to invade the world with Round 2 of his PROFANITY TOUR?

Face it, Charlie screwed himself over and over and over. Dumb tard didn't even need cheap hookers to do that.
Now is the time for Charlie to buy Koresh's old compound and mezmerize his followers into eternal warlock bliss, procreate and BEG for supporters to pay for his keep. Those coming, bring guns that don't go off.
TMZ will be there to report the latest as it happens. lol

Nice words, but unfortunately that is not something a WISE person does. That is something a SELFISH person does. A true friend gives support no matter what. Jon Cryer was never that to Charlie, and Charlie didn't realize that. He thought he was more than just a co-star. That's why he attacked him. But then he apologized. Did Jon apologize for acting like a coward?

Never watched the show for Charlie anyway...his character was often nothing but a reprehensible jerk. I have always thoroughly enjoyed Jon Cryer's comedic talents; I will continue to tune in to watch HIM.

Jon Cryer is a class act and very funny. I have enjoyed the self-deprecating humor he has displayed during this entire fiasco. His "job" on Ellen, the "I am a troll" bit on Conan, "reading TMZ to find out if he still has a job" and now male modeling.

I wish all the cast of 2 & 1/2 Men the very best and look forward to seeing the reformatted show!

@ksis - You seem unwilling to acknowledge that Sheen created these problems for himself - it seems quite likely that his co-stars and associates cautioned him against his erratic behaviors - which is what true friends would do - but they did not join him in drunken orgies with porn stars, nor trash hotel rooms, nor cocaine parties. As a co-worker they can acknowledge your past performance but if you create a "cow patty" of your life and step in it they are not obliged to follow you. Nor are they obliged to support you in your choices if they do not agree with them. Those who do support are called "enablers" not cowards IMO.

We clearly have a different opinion on wisdom.

I think Jon Crier was very wise to stay out of Charlie Sheen's fight against their employer.

I think you are completely unreasonable in your belief that he "owed" Charlie Sheen support of any kind regarding his foolish attack against the hand that fed him.

I could not agree with you more!

Charlie's actions cost Jon, the cast and crew an income for several months. I think Jon is being very gracious in his comments. I'm not so sure I could have been as kind.

Ashton doesn't have the talent Charlie Sheen does? Apparently you never saw That 70's Show. Ashton made the show. And Charlie has been looking like a drunken wiped out has been and ruining the show. Ashton will do great. And the show will have better ratings then with Charlie Sheen.

No, we seem to have different opinion on friendship and loyality, but that's ok:)

#angeleyes

Why would I acknowledge this, when I disagree that this was the case? Other cast members contacted Charlie, some of them expressed their support publically, like the actress playing Charlie's mother. Almsot everyone, except the one that kept babbling during the Emmies how proud he is to have been working with Sheen. My opinion of him stands.

KSIS is back....as I said in one of the first 20 comments after this article was posted....I am sure KSIS is either Charlie Sheen, one of his girls of a "whanna be" one of his girls.

I cannot see any other reason to defend such a looser as this as much as KSIS does.

I used to be a HUGE fan of his.....but reality has shown he is a looser that has not grown up and will be found dead in a hotel room alone some day.
