The post included an image of the a People's Choice Award the American series won in 2007 for favorite TV Comedy, where Charlie played Charlie Harper.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, CBS, Gossip

Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. JonesAshton Kutcher and Jon Cryer were shocked by Angus T. Jones' meltdown.

The 19-year-old actor - who stars on Two And A Half Men with Ashton and John - launched a tirade against the sitcom calling it "filth" in a video with his church pastor and while Jon was surprised, he felt living through former co-star Charlie Sheen's falling out with creator Chuck Lorre left him better prepared for it than Ashton.

"It is surreal to be part of several internet s**t storms. When the latest one happened Ashton came up to me and he looked like he had seen a ghost and he was like, 'Did you hear about Angus?' and I was like, 'He is ok?' He said, 'Sort of,' and he showed me the video. And as I said having become a veteran of the internet s**t storm afterward I just looked at Ashton and said, 'Well do you think he still wants to go in on the crew gift?' It's just been one after the other. My life has taken a lot of strange turns. Mostly I'm just glad everybody is still alive," Jon said.

Miley Cyrus and Ashton Kutcher in 'Two and a Half Men'Miley Cyrus was "on fire" when she filmed Two and a Half Men.

The singer-and-actress recently made a cameo appearance in the sitcom and though the show's star Jon Cryer wasn't initially confident she would be a success, he was thrilled when she stepped in front of the camera and nailed her part:

"She plays a motor-mouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. She was lovely, and we had a great time. All week, she was on book [looking at the script] which is understandable. But even when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book. We were thinking, 'Oh no, Miley better bring it!' And then we did it in front of the audience, and Miley brought it! Miley was just on fire and fantastic."

Miley recently had her hair cut into a daring short crop and Jon thinks her new look is fantastic. "I know her haircut is very controversial, but I lay on the side of 'I love it.' I think she looks fantastic," he said.

Earlier this year Ashton revealed he would be happy to return for a new series: "I'm having a lot of fun doing the show, working with these guys and would be interested in coming back. The deal that we structured for the show is kind of a test deal, 'Can we get the show up? Can we get it going?' The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here, and so I think people are responding to it, and, for me having a show that people like and people want more of, that'll dictate my decision."

He might be the best thing for the family, but everyone misses their 'original dad,' Charlie. With Charlie, we knew we could push his buttons and joke around about his personal life all the time. Ashton is all business and doesn't like to joke around with the guys about his life. It's off limits," an insider said.
