Charlie reacts to Ashton replacing him.
John Cryer has a small complaint about Ashton Kutcher joining Two and a Half Men. Actually, not so small. During the CBS upfonts today — during which the networks do presentations for advertisers — the returning series star made a crack about his new costar, saying, “Did you have to get such a tall guy?”

The appearance marked Ashton’s very first public appearance the Two and a Half Men gang. Although he made crack about having to learn his lines, the actor was rather serious in his appreciation about his new gig.

Ashton told reporters: 

“In my 13 years in show business, I’ve never received more emails and phone calls from people congratulating me for this job. You almost think I’ve won the lotto … which I kind of did. I got the best job in show business and I’m excited about that.”


Two and a Half Men will return in the fall, with the new team starting production this summer.
