‘Two and a Half Men’ star Jon Cryer — the man Charlie Sheen called a ‘toad’ — has a new stage role. And the job will be over long before the cast ever needs to head back to work on the hit CBS sitcom!

Jon Cryer is joining the big-name cast in a new musical production that will also feature Christina Hendricks, Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Colbert, Patti LuPone, Anika Noni Rose and Martha Plimpton!

In a bit of a role-reversal from his straight-man part opposite certified wildman Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, this time Jon gets to play the substance-abusing part! For this New York Philharmonic production of the Stephen Sondheim musical Company, he will portray the pot-smoking friend of the main character, played by Neil.

The semi-staged production is to run only from April 7 to 9. So Jon will have plenty of time to get ready if Two and a Half Men does make back on the air at CBS, as we reported it just might.
