Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer says he’s “jazzed” about working with Ashton Kutcher (while, as you’d expect, also saying something nice about his former co-star Charlie Sheen).

Giving a statement to People, Cryer said: “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. Ashton is an extraordinarily talented guy, and his presence will be an asset to our show. We are old friends from our male modeling days, and we’re both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty. I’m jazzed about the news this morning that Two and a Half Men is coming back! For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited.”

For his part, Sheen also had something to say earlier today about Kutcher taking his old job, but it was a bit less kind.
