Funnyman Jon Cryer Cancelled Plans To Release A Statement Of Support For His Former Two And A Half Men Co-star Charlie Sheen After The Embattled Actor Called Him A "Troll".
Sheen hit headlines in 2011 when his feud with the sitcom's creator Chuck Lorre went public, and the actor's increasingly bizarre behaviour eventually led to him being fired from the hit TV show.
Cryer was left in the middle of the melee, and had planned to back Sheen by releasing a letter of support, but he axed the move after his former colleague hurled a particularly nasty insult at him.
In an interview with U.S. newswoman Meredith Vieira on her talk show on Tuesday (14Apr15), Cryer revealed, "The day he got fired, my publicist said, 'Well, do you want to put out a public statement because you guys were sort of close.'

Actor Jon Cryer Discovered Demi Moore Had Dumped Him From Her Housekeeper.
Cryer and the actress fell for each other while shooting 1984 movie No Small Affair, when he was 19 and Moore 22, and embarked on a "whirlwind" romance.
He says, "We were both just excited to be in a movie and she was fresh out of (soap opera) General Hospital... I recall being amazed by it on a daily basis. At the time, she was more grown up than me and much more sophisticated and I had a feeling I got in a lot deeper than she did."
And while Cryer doesn't remember much about their brief relationship, he does remember how he found out that she was no longer interested in being his girlfriend.

Actor Jon Cryer Missed Out On A Lucrative Leading Role In Iconic U.s. Sitcom Friends When His Audition Tape Was Impounded By Customs Officers.
The Two and a Half Men star wanted the part of Chandler Bing in the 1990s TV hit but he was performing in London when the tryouts were taking place so he arranged with producers to audition via videotape.
Cryer posted the footage back to the Friends crew in the U.S., but it was seized as a suspicious package and never made it through customs.
However, Cryer is convinced he would not have landed the role anyway because the successful applicant, Matthew Perry, was perfect as Bing.

Jon Cryer Endured An "Awkward" First Meeting With Ashton Kutcher When He Initially Joined The Two And A Half Men Cast, Because The Veteran Actor Once Dated The No Strings Attached Star's Then-wife Demi Moore.
Kutcher became the frontrunner to take over the lead role from Charlie Sheen after he was fired from the sitcom in 2011 following a public feud with executive producer Chuck Lorre, but Cryer feared he wouldn't be able to get along with his potential new co-star because of their unlikely connection.
The Pretty In Pink actor recalls, "It was a little awkward because she (Moore) and I had dated when he (Kutcher) was seven! There was that aspect, but what happened was, we had our very first meeting... but I didn't know if she had told him we had dated, so for the whole meeting, he didn't say anything, so every time he'd make a joke, I'd be kind of awkwardly like..., 'Ha ha ha, that's a great joke, 'cause we're old friends; it's not like I dated your wife!'
"At the very end of it, he said, 'She told me. It's cool, don't worry about it'."

An extract of Jon Cryer's autobiography has been released and it details some very interesting, if not somewhat disturbing, incidents from Cryer's experience working with his former 'Two and a Half Men' co-star, Charlie Sheen.
Jon Cryer's autobiography, So What Happened?, is due to be released on April 7th. Fortunately for us, some of the most interesting sections have been pre-released and they largely concern the antics of Cryer's former Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen. 49-year-old Cryer's depiction of Sheen is similar to how he is depicted in the public eye: wild, controversial and frequently embroiled in unusual relationships.
Jon Cryer's autobiography will be released in April.
Pretty In Pink Star Jon Cryer Was Stunned When His Former Two And A Half Men Co-star Charlie Sheen Hit The Road With A One-man Show After He Was Fired From The Sitcom - Because It Was Clear He Didn't Know What He Was Doing.
Sheen was dropped after a public fall-out with show creator Chuck Lorre in 2011 and spent months hosting an irreverent online radio show and hitting the road for an ill-advised comedy tour, and Cryer still thinks the whole idea was a terrible one.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I knew that Charlie, while being a gifted actor and a remarkably smart man, didn't have the slightest f**king idea how to put on a live stage show, even when he wasn't loaded, but I figured he must have at least one person in his retinue of managers and hangers-on who knew what they were doing.
"Turns out I was wrong. His first few dates resembled exactly what happens when a bunch of a**holes throw money at a drug addict to make him dance like a monkey."
49 year old Cryer kept professional and quiet during the Sheen sacking controversy four years ago, but his new memoir reveals all.
Charlie Sheen’s antics over recent years have become the stuff of legend, but one of the closest people to him kept largely quiet about what it was like to work alongside him. Until now.
Sheen’s ‘Two and a Half Men’ co-star Jon Cryer, except for a small handful of interviews, has never spilled the beans on what it was like to be around him on a daily basis, wisely choosing to quietly get on with his job and earn millions of dollars as part of the wildly popular comedy.

Ashton Kutcher stunned Two And A Half Men co-star Jon Cryer and their crew members shortly after landing his role on the sitcom by offering to wear a prosthetic penis he conveniently had in his trailer for a nude scene.
Kutcher had only just replaced fired Charlie Sheen on the show when he had to reveal himself during an episode, and it was at that point that Cryer knew he had the perfect castmate.
Looking back at their time together on the show, which ends in the U.S. on Thursday night (19Feb15), Cryer recalls the moment he knew that himself and Kutcher would be great co-stars.
