Jon Cryer opened up to David Letterman last night about the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding Charlie Sheen’s exit from Two and a Half Men and new co-star Ashton Kutcher. Simultaneously, he reminded us that despite everything that’s happened in the past year, he’s still a classy guy.

Cryer, who has remained pretty mum about the situation (sans his hilarious rebuttal to being called “a troll” by Sheen), was candid about the time when he believed he was out of a job because of Sheen. “None of us wanted to continue with the show if we felt like it was hurting him. And there was a point at which everybody felt like, ‘There is no control here.'”

But not soon after, he said, CBS had quickly assembled a plan B: Bring on Ashton Kutcher. He joked, however, he remains wary of his new co-star. On the way to the network’s Upfronts presentation, held last month in New York, “Ashton came on the plane and said, ‘You know what I love about private jets? You can bring knives on board.'”
