TV star’s ‘crazy’ days working with Sheen

It's been almost five years since Jon Cryer took his last bow as Alan Harper alongside Charlie Sheen's Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men.

In a recent interview, Cryer discussed what it was like working with the "rollercoaster" that is Sheen.

Cryer and Sheen were co-stars on the popular sitcom until 2011 when Sheen had his infamous meltdown. The now 53-year-old Anger Management star went to rehab and put the show on hiatus. He then insulted series creator Chuck Lorre and was fired from the show.

Speaking on Access Live over the weekend, Cryer, who is starting his run as Lex Luthor on the TV series Supergirl, discussed the days working with Sheen.

"It was crazy. It was way more craziness than I really was hoping for, honestly," he said with a laugh.

Cryer continued: "It was tough to watch a guy who I had seen … you know, when we started the show, Charlie had been sober for a while and was really in control of his life, and it was tough to see that go away. That was the hardest part of being involved in that process. But actually doing the shows was always great. There was never a time when it wasn't great."

Cryer also explained he hadn't spoken to Sheen in years.

"It's kind of a rollercoaster when you have Charlie in your life, and I just haven't decided to get back on that rollercoaster," he said.

As previously reported, Sheen recently called for Two and a Half Men to be revived in the way that Roseanne and other shows have returned after years away.

When asked his thoughts on the matter, Cryer simply reiterated: "Again, I'm not so sure about getting back on that rollercoaster."
