Two And A Half Men Replacing Angus T Jones With A Leading Lady


Ashton Kutcher Jon Cryer Angus T. Jones Charlie Sheen

With the “Two and a Half Men” cast dwindling as it has been – Angus T. Jones got cut at the end of the last season, there is room for a brand new cast member. Presumably in an effort to keep things fresh, the show’s producers have decided to replace Jones with a lady. The news was first reported by Deadline and so far, there haven’t been any updates on names being considered for the part.

The new addition will be introduced into the story, in a rather convoluted twist, as Charlie Harper’s daughter. Apparently, she’ll show up out of the blue, looking for her father and she will wind up moving in with the bachelors. Yes, ok, not the best storyline, but even the fact that the series is adding a lady as a main character is pretty progressive, in light of previous “Two and a Half Men” history.

Or it could be a desperate ploy to boost viewership in any way possible. The series’ ratings just haven’t been the same since Charlie Sheen’s departure in one final burst of media attention. But while Sheen’s replacement with Ashton Kutcher was somewhat successful, it’s difficult to imagine Two and a Half Men without its oh-so-important half. Plus, Two Men and a Girl just doesn’t sound as catchy. Catchy or not though, the role could be a major opportunity for some budding Hollywood talent. Just wait for the casting rumors to start

Two And A Half Men Will Keep Chugging Along, But With Only Occasional Appearances From Angus T Jones


Angus T. Jones Jon Cryer Ashton Kutcher

Two and a Half Men, that perplexingly infamous CBS sitcom has been renewed for a new season (hold your groans), but Angus T Jones will not be returning as a series regular. Yes, this once again prompts quips about the missing “half” of the show. Considering that Jones is 19 now though, that’s been missing for a while now and none of the viewers seem to complain. So Jones won’t be a regular, but Studio Warner Bros. is reportedly in talks to get him back as a recurring character on the show, according to Entertainment Weekly. So if you were getting anxious over the lack of Jake Harper (we don’t really see why you would), there’s no need to worry.

Earlier this year there was speculation that Jones might be booted off Two and a Half Men entirely, after a video was leaked on Youtube of him enthusiastically bashing the show and its production team. But CBS apparently decided to be the bigger people (they also probably didn’t feel like reworking the entire series formula) and CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said earlier in January that the conflict had been resolved:

“The kid’s 19 years old,” Tassler said at the time.”I’ve got a 24 year old. Between the ages of 19 and 24 there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t but the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. [Jones has] been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back and he wants to come back and that’s it.”

Angus T. Jones Calls Two And A Half Men "Filth", Urges Fans To Stop Watching (Video)


Angus T. Jones Charlie Sheen Chuck Lorre Jon Cryer

Angus T. Jones, the young actor who starred alongside Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men and who now shares the screen with his replacement Ashton Kutcher, has pleaded with viewers to stop watching the CBS comedy, dubbing it "filth." As you may have surmised, Jones' outburst has religious ties and he was speaking with Christian Group the Forerunner Chronicles at the time.

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth," explained the 19-year-old. There wasn't even a hint of Jones conceding to the fact that it's his job and that people should remember he is not Jake. He firmly asserted, "People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch." There was more to come.

Jones continued by intimidating the show is part of the plan of "the enemy", saying, "I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show." The actor earns around $350,000 per episode for Two and a Half Men, receiving a huge salary bump in May alongside co-stars Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher.

Miley Cyrus To Raise Eyebrows, And Temperatures, On ‘Two And A Half Men’


Miley Cyrus Ashton Kutcher Jon Cryer Charlie Sheen

Miley Cyrus’ Two and Half Men appearance is likely to raise eyebrows after still-shots of the episode appeared online. Miley plays Missi, the daughter of one of Ashton Kutcher’s character’s friends.

The stills appear to show Miley trying to get her hands on Walden, flaunting her cleavage whilst sat on his bed. The title of the episode - ‘You Know What The Lollipop Is For’- is plenty suggestive. Backstage at the Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 23, 2012), ‘Two and a Half Men’ star Jon Cryer said the former ‘Hannah Montana’ star will be worth watching for the shock value alone, telling USA Today, “She plays kind of a motormouth character so they gave her page long monologues…Miley brought it, she was fantastic.” Without prompt, Cryer also gave his verdict on the singer/actress’ new blonde hairstyle (which she shows off in the forthcoming episode), saying, “I lay on the side of I love it! I think she looks fantastic.”

Despite the departure of Charlie Sheen, Cryer has gone from strength-to-strength on the long running comedy show, winning the Emmy for Best Comedy Actor on Sunday. At the ceremony, he reflected on how things have changed in recent months, “With Charlie, it (the rhythm) was automatic, we never had to think about it…With Ashton, we’re always working on it, we’re always coming up with more stuff. Show nights go great, show nights go incredibly fast now. It’s a blast”, he said.


Brits Abroad: Damian Lewis And Maggie Smith Win Big At Emmy Awards 2012


Damian Lewis Maggie Smith Julian Fellowes Martin Freeman Benedict Cumberbatch Jon Cryer Jim Parsons Charlie Sheen

British actor Damian Lewis and screen veteran Maggie Smith were among the winners at the Emmy Awards 2012 in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (September 23, 2012). Lewis – who plays an American soldier in ‘Homeland’ – picked up the award for Best Actor in a Drama, while Downton Abbey’s Smith won Best Supporting Actress.

On receiving his award, Lewis joked with the star-studded audience, “I'm one of those pesky Brits, I apologise,” adding, “I don't really believe in judging art, but I thought I'd show up just in case.” Lewis’ show ‘Homeland’ upset the odds by taking the evening’s biggest prize, for Best Drama, ahead of big favorite Breaking Bad and four-time winner Mad Men. Maggie Smith’s award was the solitary highlight in a terrible night for Julian Fellowes’ Downton Abbey, which had been nominated for a whopping sixteen prizes. Instead, it was national security drama Homeland, HBO’s Game Change and the much-loved US comedy Modern Family who won the most awards, with three each. Armed with Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, the BBC would have felt quietly confident for the Lead Actor and Supporting Actor gongs, but both actors missed out.

Another big surprise at this year’s Emmys was Jon Cryer’s award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in ‘Two and a Half Men’. The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons was the hot favorite for the award, though it was Cryer who walked away with the prize. Who needs Charlie Sheen?


So, What Exactly Happened At The Primetime Emmys?


Bryan Cranston Jim Parsons Damian Lewis Jon Cryer Lena Dunham

The Emmy Awards 2012 has been and gone. The tuxedos dry cleaned and the dresses sold in ex-worn outlet stores, never to be donned by a star again for fear of the unwanted headlines. But hang on a minute; why aren’t the AMC Execs still shaking off a hangover? Why isn’t Bryan Cranston polishing his Emmy? Why in the great gods of television isn’t Jim Parsons heading to his Big Bang Theory rehearsals without an extra skip in his step?

It’s because none of them won! That’s why! And what a scandal that is. But what exactly happened? Well the Bryan Cranston one we can see; he’s won it before for the same character (Walter White), and Damien Lewis was quite something in Showtime’s terrorist drama Homeland, but did the show deserve the most prestigious award of Best Drama? Breaking Bad’s 4th season was truly something to behold. It had everything, and it’s not like the competition stopped there, with Mad Men vying for an unprecedented 5th award. But Homeland was the first season of a truly ground-breaking show: a drama that addressed a growing elephant in the rooms of many western citizens. Terrorism. Add to that the stellar performances – with Claire Danes picking up Best Actress as well - and we can just about understand the way the voters went.

Now, for the comedy awards, we’re not so sure. Modern Family was always going to win the big prize, and given that the ABC comedy had nearly a billion nominations* going into the ceremony, other wins were inevitable. However, Jim Parson’s portrayal of Sheldon Cooper has – alongside some incredibly snappy writing – carried The Big Bang Theory to beyond 100 episodes. With Charlie Sheen leaving, and Jon Cryer adopting a bigger role, he bagged the prize, but even he was surprised and shocked as he gave a press conference; big fat Emmy in his right hand. Oh, and Lena Dunham should have won too. Her performance in Girls sets new benchmarks for women comedy actors being allowed to ‘be’ different things. Now time to start predicting the 2013 awards…

Emmy Awards: Homeland And Modern Family Take Home The Big Prizes


Claire Danes Damian Lewis Aaron Paul Jim Parsons Jon Cryer

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards kicked off last night, and there were some surprises and with Homeland winning best drama. Modern Family also picked up best comedy, but everyone knew that would happen

Some expected Breaking Bad to sweep up, and others predicted that Mad Men would take the crown for an incredible fifth time. As it turned out, the terrorist drama/thriller Homeland took home the top prize. And the show's stars didn't miss out either, with Claire Danes and Damian Lewis both winning the best actress and best actor awards for their performances in the show. It was a great night for Showtime, as everyone (including us) expected the explosive end to season 4 of Breaking Bad to be a shoe-in for the big awards. Aaron Paul, who depicts Jesse Pinkman in AMC's meth drama did win best supporting actor, though.

In a more predictable turn, Modern Family scooped up the best comedy award. The ABC laugh-a-minute comedy, which hits screens again with a new series starting September 26th, picked up a further three prizes, with both supporting actor prizes and the writing award to make it four for the night. Whilst Jim Parsons was widely expected to win the best actor in a comedy award, his performances as Sheldon Cooper on Big Bang Theory being so popular, it wasn't to be, and Jon Cryer of Two And A Half Men was named winner. "Something has clearly gone terribly wrong," Cryer joked.

Jon Cryer Recovering After Bike Crash. Ouch


Jon Cryer Ashton Kutcher

Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer was involved in a bike crash, causing him to lose a bit of skin, reports USA Today.

Partaking in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sunday (September 16th) was supposed to be a leisurely, money-raising event for the 47-year-old actor, but it ended in tears as Cryer lost control of his bike, culminating in some nasty flesh wounds after he skidded along the ground. Not nice. "You know how cyclists wear the leotard that offers zero protection? I used that to break my fall," Cryer told TMZ today. He added: "I've left a lot of my skin on the Pacific Coast Highway.” If that wasn’t bad enough, the CBS man was awarded with a parking ticket as he left the doctor’s surgery that treated the wounds. Serves him right for participating in the Stand Up to Cancer organization.

Cryer will be hoping for a different type of award, as he is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in "Two and a Half Men." He previously won a Best Supporting Actor Emmy for the same role. The comedy, which also stars Ashton Kutcher begins its 10th season on Sept. 27. Get well soon Jon!

Shorts Review


OK
This hyperactive adventure may keep children giggling at the sheer chaos on screen, but it'll wear out older viewers looking for something that actually holds the attention.

Toe Thompson (Bennett) is a lonely kid in school, picked on relentlessly by the school bully Helvetica (Vanier) and her big brother Cole (Gearhart). They're the children of Mr Black (Spader), owner of the monolithic company that employs everyone in town, including Toe's parents (Cryer and Mann). Then Toe finds a mysterious rainbow-coloured rock that has the ability to grant wishes. After passing through the hands of his schoolmates Loogie and Nose (Gagnon and Short), the town is awash in walking crocodiles and giant boogers. And Helvetica is about to get her hands on it.

Cannes Man Review


Bad
The most intriguing part of Cannes Man is virtually unknown director Richard Martini cajoled stars like Johnny Depp and Lara Flynn Boyle to appear in his barely amusing semi-mockumentary. (Editor's note: Another director, Susan Shaprio, recently wrote me to contest Martini's ownership of the film. More as it develops.) The film tells a story of a Jersey punk (Francesco Quinn) who hooks up with a smarmy producer (Seymour Cassel) at Cannes to produce his dream flick, a sci-fi something or other inspired by the works of Troma.

The catch: Cassel's only doing it on a bet that he can turn any old jerk into the toast of the Cannes film festival.

Pretty In Pink Review


Excellent
The youth of today -- the kids just entering their teens -- will they regard Molly Ringwald as a teen dramedy princess, or will she be known as a B-list queen of cheesecake horror films?

Pretty in Pink stands out as the perennial ladies' favorite from the Brat Pack era, with Ringwald turning in an unforgettable role (and role model) as a poor girl named Andie who takes care of dad (Harry Dead Stanton playing a stereotypical drunk), makes great grades (and her own clothes), all while finding herself pursued by no fewer than three guys. The real competition comes down to a war between the rich kid (Andrew McCarthy) and Andie's fellow poor-boy (Jon Cryer, whose wannabe hipster "Duckie" has become a legend of the era).

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace Review


Terrible
Christopher Reeve allegedly insisted that if he was going to slum his way through a fourth Superman movie, it would have to involve a story about nuclear disarmament. Noble, yes, but after Supe tosses all the nukes into the sun, Lex Luthor tosses token villain "Nuclear Man" (Mark Pillow, whose career was promptly killed after this debacle) into the mix. Pathetic battle, combined with the usual "hide that secret identity!" subplot, ensues. Worst of all are the special effects: I didn't think you could make an entire movie on a bluescreen in 1987, but damn if director Sidney J. Furie doesn't try. I've also never seen people falling sooo sloooooowlyyyyyyyyyy. Avoid!

Holy Man Review


Terrible
Pop quiz. You're Eddie Murphy, a popular comedian who makes about a decade of bad movies. You then do a remake of a Jerry Lewis classic and you're back in the swing of things. People start to like you again. Why would you do Holy Man?

In this awful, Saturday Night Live sketch gone bad, Jeff Goldblum stars in a thankless role as an infomercial executive who needs to find good product or he'll be fired. He stumbles upon G (Murphy), a mysterious man in a white sheet who speaks eloquently about.... uh....stuff. Goldblum has the inevitable romance with co-worker Kelly Preston, who are about as compatible as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Walter Mathau.

Plan B Review


Good
They've been remaking The Big Chill just about every year for a decade. That doesn't mean it's been working. Plan B, focusing on the lives of a half-dozen guys and gals in their late 20s/early 30s -- all of whom find their lives aren't working out the way they planned. It's hardly art, but if you can stomach another movie about a failed novelist, Plan B has enough chuckles to make it worth your while.

Went To Coney Island On A Mission From God... Be Back By Five Review


Good
Who would have thought that the life of Jon Cryer -- actor in such memorable films as Hiding Out and Morgan Stewart's Coming Home -- would be such fertile ground for based-on-a-true-story filmmaking?

Based on a script co-written by Cryer himself, Went to Coney Island on a Mission From God... Be Back by Five is a movie about, well, exactly that. Daniel (Cryer) and Stan (Rick Stear) head to the New York landmark in the dead of winter, based on a rumor they've heard about their childhood friend Richie. The long-missing Richie, it seems, has taken up residence under the boardwalk, joining ranks with the insane and otherwise homeless Coney Island-dwellers. It's Daniel and Stan to the rescue.
