Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer has remained relatively silent during this exciting Charlie Sheen year (with the notable exception of a self-deprecating appearance on Conan.) But on today’s edition of Ellen, the actor discusses his perspective on the controversy that nearly ended his show. In a promo for the episode, Cryer explains that Men wasn’t the first thing on his mind during the crisis: “I was worried that Charlie was going to die.” Host Ellen Degeneres helpfully notes that Cryer was “so gracious” at a time when Sheen was publicly calling Cryer “a troll.” Cryer sounds almost apologetic about the whole incident, explaining: “It was in the heat of the moment I imagine when he said it. So I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time.” The two actors have not spoken since Sheen left the Two and a Half Men set last season. Check out the promo:
