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?

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.”

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.”

Ashton Kutcher has revealed that he is already having fun on the set of his rebooted sitcom, Two And A Half Men.
According to co-star Jon Cryer, who told USA Today, “It’s fun to be having fun again. At times, it was less fun.”
Jon says that he is pleased with the way Ashton has taken to their castmates. He said, “It was easy from day one, which is remarkable. I was really impressed with how Ashton leapt into this, into what could conceivably be construed as a high-pressure situation.”
He attributes that to Ashton’s mischievous personality and is looking forward to more filming with the former That 70′s Show star. He added that Ashton has already pulled a prank on a crew member, which eased himself into his new role. He said, “I think there was something about that that made everyone go, ‘Ah, okay, we can have fun.”

Jon Cryer has really kept a low profile since Charlie Sheen exploded in a anger-filled rant at Two And A Half Men creator, Chuck Lorre. He has poked fun at himself, joking that he’d taken on a job answering phones for talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres (photographed at the reception desk above). Now, Jon has something to say now that the news has circulated that Ashton Kutcher is stepping in for a new role on the hit TV show.
Jon has revealed that he’s “jazzed” about the news that Ashton will be joining the cast of the show. Jon said in a statement, “I’m jazzed about the news this morning that Two And A Half Men is coming back! For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited…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.”
Jon also had some words for his former co-worker, Charlie Sheen. He said, “I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. 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.”
In a recent statement, however, Charlie said that the show would basically fail without him. What do you think of the casting for the show? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
On Saturday, we learned that Alec Baldwin hadfor “unemployed winner” Charlie Sheen. He told Charlie to “sober up”, “take a shower” and go beg for his job back. He also commented that Charlie should buy Jon Cryer a nice car for calling him a troll and a turncoat.
Did you think Charlie was going to take that lying down?!??
A friend of Charlie’s said, “Who is Alec to give Charlie advice. Charlie never spoke out during Alec’s voicemail scandal. If Charlie ever wanted to talk with Alec, which I doubt he ever world, he would pick up a phone, not write an editorial.”
Oh snap! And it gets better!
The pal went on to say, “Charlie believes no one is smarter than he is. He doesn’t ask or take advice from anyone. If he thinks he has a problem then he will solve it himself. He’s certainly not going to take any advice from Alec. As far as Charlie is concerned, Alec should shut up, sit down and keep eating.”
The ball’s in your court, Alec!
In case you missed it, Charlie Sheen trashed his former Two And A Half Men co-star Jon Cryer and.
He has since issued an apology to Jon, or what he calls a half apology. In a new interview, Charlie said, “I apologize to Jon right now. I was in a mood and I threw that out to somebody. I didn’t know they – well I kinda knew they were gonna print it. Yeah, I knew they were gonna print it. I confuse myself. It’s a little bit of a half-apology. An apol.”
In his rant against Jon, he said that Jon is a “turncoat, a traitor and a troll.” Charlie said, “The reason I was upset is because I didn’t get a text or a phone call or anything saying, ‘Hey, dude, back off, I got your back, or you got my back or there’s a back involved.’”
I am still one of the many who are hoping that this is all an act. Are you?
