Jon Cryer Never Managed to Get Charlie Sheen’s Phone Number

Jon Cryer.

When Charlie Sheen departed Two and a Half Men in a blaze of ... something ... earlier this year, he wasn't shy about putting his former co-star Jon Cryer on blast. "Jon has not called me," Sheen ranted to E! News back in March. "He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Clearly he's a troll." Clearly! But Cryer finally explained his longtime Sheen aversion to TV Guide this week, claiming, "I don't even have his number." There must be a reasonable explanation for why Jon Cryer never managed to get his co-star's phone number in eight years, right? Was he cleverly avoiding all the late-night drunk texts about Apocalypse Now, wayward graphic designers, and rhinoceros-derived aphrodisiacs? Or maybe Cryer did get the phone number, but after Charlie Sheen's eighth cell phone mysteriously disappeared off a ditch in Calabasas, Cryer was like, "No, I'm not doing this anymore"? Whatever the case, Cryer says that even though he doesn't have Sheen's number, "He still has mine." Your move, Charlie. [Reuters]
