Two And A Half Men actor Jon Cryer underwent three grueling months of rehab treatment following a terrifying biking accident last year.
The actor was taking part in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, which includes an ocean swim, an 18-mile cycle ride and a four-mile run, when he fell off his bike during the second challenge. He pulled out of the race and was treated for severe skin lacerations, and he has now revealed it took months of painful therapy to get him back on his feet.
However, Cryer refused to let the accident stop him competing in this year’s event, and he returned to the race over the weekend. Speaking after completing the course, he told reports, “I made it! I retained most of my skin this year. So it’s good… I had three months of rehab.”
Asked whether he is planning to take part in the 2014 race, he adds, “Yes, I will be back.”
Kudos to him for not letting the biking accident get him down. We’re glad to hear that he will be back for next year’s event. We definitely admire his drive, don’t you?
Back in November 2012, Angus T. Jones blasted his own show “Two And A Half Men”, urging people to stop watching the CBS show. Now, it has come up for renewal for an eleventh season and he has not been listed as a regular cast member.
Both Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have signed a new one-year deal to return to the show, but Angus’ character is said to be only recurring. What is “Two And A Half Men” without the “half”??
We’re guessing that he got his wish not to appear on the show! What do you think?
Disney star Miley Cyrus appears on an upcoming episode of “Two And A Half Men”, playing a new to Los Angeles girl by the name of Missi. Above, you can see that she is sporting some racy lingerie alongside Ashton Kutcher’s character, Walden Schmidt.
Jon Cryer recently spoke of Miley’s appearance on the show and he had nothing but good words for the singer/actress. He said, “Missi is just coming to L.A. to see what it’s like to live out there and she stays with us for a few days and of course throws everything into disarray. Miley is beautiful and remarkable. You will enjoy her on the show!”
Previously, he said, “She plays kind of a motormouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. All week she was on book with them, which is understandable. But when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book, and we’re thinking, uh oh, Miley better bring it.”
The episode of “Two And A Half Men” featuring Miley Cyrus airs on October 17, 2012. Will you be tuning in to see her “motormouth character”?
Ashton Kutcher has just signed on for the tenth season of “Two And A Half Men” and his paycheck is continuing to grow. According to Hollywood.com, Kutcher will earn $725,000 per episode. That makes an extra $25,000 he will be earning as opposed to the ninth season of the show.
Kutcher took the reins on the show after CBS and Warner Brothers fired his predecessor, Charlie Sheen. After the show effectively killed off Sheen’s character, Kutcher came in for the ninth season as billionaire with a broken heart, Walden Schmidt.
Kutcher’s “Men” co-star Jon Cryer is reportedly expecting to earn an amount within the same ballpark, while Angus T. Jones is reportedly raking in $300,000 per episode.
The show’s ratings have dropped significantly when Kutcher replaced Sheen, but the network is also not paying it’s main star as much as his predecessor. Are you a “Two And A Half Men” fan? Do you still watch with Ashton Kutcher or would you have preferred for the network to make nice with Charlie Sheen?
After watching last night’s Two And A Half Men episode, titled Thanks For The Intercourse, I had some thoughts to share — and some questions. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our recap here.
Brief show summary:
Walden donates Charlie’s old piano, Alan goes nuts and embodies his late brother, in picking up a woman, drinking Scotch, wearing his clothes and smoking cigars. In the end, Alan gets tossed in the looney bin and says the catchphrase of the year, “Winning!” — only after ordering ice, Scotch and some Asian hookers on his “hand phone”.
Are the show creators that desperate to leave Charlie’s ghost hanging around the show that they made Alan go crazy and act like Charlie? When people started saying to bring back Charlie Sheen, we’re pretty sure this is not what they meant.
Was Jon Cryer able to pull off the whole Alan as Charlie charade? Did he do the role justice? We’ve seen many on-screen transformations (thanks, True Blood), so we were curious as to what you thought about the role switch-up.
Is Two And A Half Men desperate to hold onto anything Charlie? Yes, they got rid of his famous piano, but his ghost is lingering in the script, mucking about. I mean, wasn’t it an obvious dig at Charlie when Alan said, “Winning” and the end?
What do you think? Sound off in the comments below and let us know!
Winning warlock Charlie Sheen made a surprise appearance at the 2011 Emmy Awards last night!
During his spot, he wished his former co-stars and the crew of Two And A Half Men a future of “great television”.
It is a definite turn around from his previous remarks about the show and its creator, Chuck Lorre. Charlie has really seemed to turn things around for himself, don’t you think?
Since having a meltdown, Charlie has been replaced on the show by Ashton Kutcher. On last night’s awards show, however, he proved that he held no hard feelings for the actor. He presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series to Jim Parsons for his show, The Big Bang Theory.
He said to his old cast and crew, “We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television.”
Jon Cryer later presented an award with Ashton, and introduced himself on stage by saying, “I am not Charlie Sheen.”
Ashton rolled with the joke, saying, “And Jon, I want to tell you something. I do not think you are a troll.”
Which will you be watching later on tonight? The newly rebooted Two And A Half Men or the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen? Let us know in the comments!

Jon Cryer was like a lot of us in his thinking that Charlie Sheen would die from all of his partying activity.
During his crazy media tour, Charlie claimed that he was “banging seven gram rocks” of cocaine, but his former co-star says that he was always worried about Charlie’s health issues.
Jon said, “Mostly I was worried that Charlie was going to die. That was the big fear for me. And that did not occur and I’m thrilled about that.”
Charlie put Jon down during his insane media blitz. He said, “Jon has not called me. He’s a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Like I said you’re with me, or you’re with the trolls. Obviously, he’s with the trolls.”
Charlie later took his nasty comments back and made a sort of “half apology” to Jon. Of that, Jon said, “We have not spoken. And I will accept an apology both public and private. But again, it was in the heat of the moment. I imagine, when he said it. So I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time.”
Will you be watching the new season of Two And A Half Men when it makes its premiere?
