Ashton Kutcher - Jon Cryer
When Ashton Kutcher took over for Charlie Sheen on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, he had a meeting with his new co-star Jon Cryer in an effort to create some chemistry.

But it's the chemistry that Cryer used to have with Kutcher's then wife Demi Moore that had Cryer worried.

Cryer revealed in his new tell-all book "So That Happened" that he and Moore dated after starring together in the 1984 comedy No Small Affair. And he also said that Kutcher apparently was not aware of that when he first met Cryer.

Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2015
Simple mathematics indicate that 50 years ago would make it the year of 1965. That year was a unique and troublesome time in the world as the Vietnam war really began to escalate - as well as the civil rights movement. The Counter culture began to awake as skirts got much shorter and men started to grow their hair a bit longer.

Gas was a mere 31 cents per gallon and the average rent was $118 per month.

Ashton Kutcher
The two men in Two and A Half Men are looking to tie the knot in the upcoming and final season of the show – and there could be a new "half man" involved, as well.

CBS program chief Nina Tassler was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour when she revealed one of the season's plots. Ashton Kutcher's Walden seeks to adopt a child after facing a health crisis, but he finds it difficult to do so as a single man.

At some point, Walden becomes so enamored with the idea of adoption that he and Alan (Jon Cryer) decide to have a false gay marriage so the adoption can go through. A...

Charlie Sheen still regrets turning on his former Two And A Half Men co-star Jon Cryer after he was fired from the hit show last year.

The Anger Management star branded Cryer a "troll" and a "traitor" and accused him of not getting in touch during the drama which followed his brusque departure from the show.

However, time seems to have healed Sheen's wounds, and he's now desperate to repair his broken friendship with the Pretty in Pink star.

This must be a dream. Alan’s returned from hospital to find a ‘Welcome Home’ greeting from his friends and family at the Beach House. Surely, we’re looking at a Two and A Half Men apocalypse.

In the last episode, Alan reacted to Walden’s decision to have Zoey and Anna stay at the Beach House by having a minor heart attack. Walden felt so guilty that he paid for Alan’s hospital stay, and allowed him to live with him for as long as he needed.

This week, Walden is being very solicitous of Alan, carrying his bags, and worrying about Alan’s health. When they return home from Alan’s second tr...

Previously on Two and a Half Men, Zoey and daughter Ava moved in to the Beach House with Walden, while Alan stayed with Lyndsey. Neither man enjoyed their changed circumstances, and couldn’t wait for things to get back to ‘normal.’

As Walden wondered how to tell Zoey that he just couldn’t live with Ava’s energy level, Zoey told him that he had become Ava’s hero, and that he was all she talked about. So Zoey thinks that perhaps it would be a good idea for the two of them to move in permanently.
