Video: Jon Cryer Says "I Was Worried Charlie Sheen Was Going to Die"

| by Michael Allen

On the talk show 'Ellen' (video beow), 'Two and a Half Men' star Jon Cryer recalled his feelings about ex-castmate Charlie Sheen's bizarre behavior: "Mostly I was worried that Charlie was going to die. That was the big fear for me."

Cryer revealed that he and Sheen had not spoken since the unpredictable star labeled him a "troll and a turncoat" after Cryer did not call Sheen following his firing from the show.

"Now when he said bad things about you, you were so gracious. You were great. You didn't say anything back. Since then, he has apologized. Have you spoken to him since?" Ellen asked.



Cryer said: "We have not spoken. And I will accept an apology both public and private. But again, it was in the heat of the moment I imagine when he said... so I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time."

Sheen has since been replaced by Ashton Kutcher on the hit CBS comedy series.

"The writers had an enormous challenge and you'll see they handled it beautifully," said Cryer of the first episode without Sheen. "Change is often shocking, but it's so true to the show."

"And sometimes stuff you don't see coming happens in life. And in that respect it was very true to life," added Cryer, who was pleased that the show hasn't gone down a sentimental route with regards to Sheen's character.

"That's not the vibe. So everything is treated the same way we've always treated it, in a very crass and vulgar way."
