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.

    Ok so I just love Charlie sheen and I really think its hard to replace him. Period! However I think that if anyone was to step in Ashton kutcher is awesome! The first two episodes are ok because they are laying out the new story line but I'm hoping that the writers come up with something creative. I'm a long time fan of the show so ill definitely keep watching and hope I'm not disappointed. But if Charlie sheen made a come back that would be freaking amazing!! :)

    The show was a a failure! Chuck Lorre! You must B out of your mind! Charlie was the show! To bad you could not resolve your issues with Charlie! How can you bring Ashton onto the show! There is no comparison I saw the episode and it was boring! I feel sad for Kutcher

    The writers have to work very hard to get this show on the road. I saw the first episode, &it was not funny! Chuck Lorre, you made big mistake hiring Ashton Kutcher, or any other actor! Charlie Sheen is & was the best for TWO &1/2 MEN! People will watch the show only two critique it! Not that U have a great show! The first episode sets the tone for the future episodesThe show was a total failure,


    If,You think Ashton Kutcher,can’t act....,think again.I think He is great,and also He gave a lot of money for a whole football teams uniforms and gear,to a school.close to Iowa City ,Ia,Tiffin Iowa.I think that makes Him a giving.sweet kind...Guy beside!!!!!!! Judge,Your self’s before You throw rocks,and hurt someone’s feeling’s. You might find..out You are not perfect...Yourself.

    Poor Cryer and Jones have to fake smiles pretending to be happy at the prospect of the worst actor in Hollywood joining their show.

    Wow! From this photo, it looks like they should rename the program "Two and Three Quarters Men!" Or even "THREE Men!" (Nahh--"Three Men" doesn't have much of a ring to it...)

    medah: I don't know Ashton Kutcher from a hole in the wall. But if CBS thought that he couldn't act, they'd have hired somebody else! Looks to me like you're in the tiny minority here!

    Go home Ashton you are ruining my favorite show. You are to silly and cannot act.

    Charlie Sheen's loss was Ashton Kutcher's gain -- and the new face of CBS
