"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," Cryer said in a statement to People.
His new co-star Ashton Kutcher, meanwhile, "is an extraordinarily talented guy, and his presence will be an asset to our show," he said. "We are old friends from our male modeling days," Cryer joked, "and we're both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty."
The "Two and a Half Men" star added that he's "jazzed" about the news that CBS is bringing back "Two and a Half Men."
"For all the rest of the cast and crew," he said, "I'm sure they are equally excited.”
