Sean Hayes called ‘Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows’ the reunion of all reunions — and he wasn’t kidding. NBC just revealed the lineup of stars planning to attend, and we were pretty shocked to see that Charlie Sheen will come face-to-face with Jon Cryer!
Charlie Sheen doesn’t have the best history with Jon Cryer. Ok, it’s actually not good — at all. Charlie verbally attacked Jon (“you’re a troll”) after leaving Two & A Half Men, while Jon stayed quiet until the show ended in February 2015. He then published, So That Happened, a book all about the crazy adventures that Charlie took him on. So, did the two put their differences aside? It looks like it! They will both appear on the tribute to James Burrows, NBC has announced. James directed two episodes of Two and a Half Men.
“There is nobody with better TV comedy instincts than Jimmy Burrows, and because of his guiding hand these remarkable shows will be forever celebrated and stand the test of time,” Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC Entertainment, said in statement. “The caliber of talent joining us to celebrate Jimmy’s accomplishments is a testament to his imprint in television history.”
Well, it looks like he’s right — everyone will come out for him. Here’s the full list of attendees for Must See TV: A Tribute To James Burrows:
