Jon Cryer on John Hughes co-stars: 'They were irritated by me from day one'

31 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jon Cryer has reflected on cult teen classic Pretty in Pink and revealed how his co-stars "were irritated by me from day one."

The actor played Phil Dale - aka Duckie - in the cool, coming-of-age John Hughes love story.

Speaking about his co-stars Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy, he revealed to Ben Tracy on CBS's Sunday Morning: "Molly and Andrew were very reserved people, and I'm a very outgoing person.

"That could've worked out great, you know, that dynamic. But it didn't!" he laughed.

"I think they were irritated by me from day one."

Ringwald had initially wanted Robert Downey Jr for the role, and the original ending saw Cryer's Duckie getting the girl. This was later re-shot as test audiences reportedly didn't believe it.

On why Ringwald would have preferred Downey Jr, he exclaimed: "I've been an effeminate heterosexual dork my whole life!

"It's confusing. It's confusing to women, »

Jon Cryer on Charlie Sheen: 'Just a Human Being with a Monumental Drug Dependency'

19 March 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

When Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men, many commentators were quick to latch onto his increasingly bizarre antics. In his upcoming memoir So That Happened (April 7, New American Library), Sheen's Men star Jon Cryer writes about the disappointing way the media tried to elevate a guy who, he says, just needed help. "A curious phenomenon was bubbling up in the media," writes Cryer, in a passage excerpted by The Hollywood Reporter. "Entertainment culture had become so stultifyingly repetitive and predictable that Charlie's antics felt like a breath of fresh air." "To some authors, commentators and bloggers »

In my face, really?” he told TMZ. “You must feel safe, motherfucker. You must feel safe where you live.” See Photos: 11 Young Stars (and Charlie Sheen) Who%u2019ve Had Messy Public Meltdowns As TheWrap previously reported, »

27 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Leonard Nimoy lived long, prospered, and touched many lives in his 83 years, judging by the outpouring of memorial messages on social media.

After the actor, best known for his role as Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek television and movie series, passed away early Friday due to the end stages of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (Copd), friends, fans, and former co-stars and even Nasa and the President took to Twitter and Instagram to remember the legendary sci-fi hero.

President Obama released a statement on Nimoy's death:

"Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.

I loved Spock.

In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was »

Two and A Half-Men Ends Without Charlie Sheen

20 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Charlie Sheen did not see Two and a Half-Men end the way he wanted. In fact, it pretty much ended without the legit, former star of the show. Thus Chuck Lorre found himself having to explain why the tiger blood king did not end up on it even after both sides claimed they wanted t. As expected, it appears that Chuck could not agree with Charlie. Here is what he said about their disagreement on his supposed guest appearance.

Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, ring the doorbell, then turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse, He would then explain that these dangers only applied to average people. That he was far from average. He was a ninja warrior from Mars. He was invincible. … And then we would drop a piano on him. »

Here's the Explanation Behind Two and Half Men's Bizarre Ending

20 February 2015 11:32 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In case you missed it, this week marked the series finale of Two and a Half Men, and while the stars were reminiscing about their time on the long-running CBS hit, the big question on everyone's mind was whether original star Charlie Sheen would come back. Well, spoiler alert: he did and he didn't. Charlie the character was revealed as actually being alive, despite being killed off on an earlier season, and when he finally comes back to reveal himself to Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Alan (Jon Cryer), we see a stand-in for Sheen approach the door - then get a piano dropped on him. As if that weren't a weird enough way to close out the show or address the controversy with Sheen, the final frame then shows series creator Chuck Lorre, who gives Sheen's famous catchphrase, "Winning," then has a piano dropped on him too. Watch that last »

Mila Kunis Makes a Yogurt Run as Ashton Kutcher Marks a Big Milestone

20 February 2015 10:55 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Mila Kunis stepped out to grab a snack at Go Greek Yogurt in La on Thursday. The actress wore a silky blue top and jeans and kept her hair covered up in a cute cloche hat. Mila was decidedly more dressed down than the last time we saw her; earlier this month, she got dolled up for the red carpet premiere of her latest movie, Jupiter Ascending, and was joined at the event by costars Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. Mila made the talk-show rounds to promote the film, but she has since been laying pretty low - she talked a lot about her baby daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, during her press appearances, and Wyatt's dad, Ashton Kutcher, just wrapped up a huge job of his own. The series finale of Two and a Half Men, which Ashton joined in 2011, aired this week, and the actor shared a sweet photo and »

Charlie Sheen -- Dead Again in 'Two and a Half Men' Finale

20 February 2015 3:50 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Chuck Lorre and the folks at "Two and a Half Men" used the finale to rip on Charlie Sheen all episode long … and then gruesomely kill him … all because Charlie wouldn't do as he was told. Long story short, the show set up a scenario where Charlie's character wasn't really dead. In the final scene, a man who looks like Charlie (seen only from behind) shows up at the house ... but is killed by a falling piano, »

'Two and a Half Men' finale recap - The Truth About Charlie

19 February 2015 11:21 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

CBS' "Two and a Half Men" ended on Thursday (February 19) night after 12 seasons and a whopping 262 episodes. It was a show that relied heavily on puns and hack dirty jokes, a sitcom that went on far too long -- between five years and 12 years, depending on who you ask -- and ground a premise that was almost impossible to logically justify into the ground. But don't take my word for it.  Ask "Two and a Half Men"! Thursday's two-part "Of Course He's Dead" finale may not have been great art, but it was an amusingly self-conscious conclusion built around an unfulfilled promise that at least punished the principals responsible for that unfulfilled promise. And if a finale featuring two people crushed by pianos isn't love, it'll have to do until the real thing comes along. [In other news, the series finale of "Parks and Recreation" is less than a week away and I somehow assume it will be the real thing. »
