(LOS ANGELES) -- Jon Cryer on Monday received the 2,449th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, just hours before his CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men returned to TV with its new star, Ashton Kutcher.
Kutcher, co-star Angus T. Jones, and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre joined Cryer for the ceremony.
The man that Kutcher replaced on the show, Charlie Sheen, was a topic of conversation at the Walk of Fame.
Lorre made a reference to Sheen's troubles earlier this year when he told Cryer during the ceremony, "Should you fall into the spiral of drug addiction and destroy your life and all those around you, know that we will love you all the more."
Jokes aside, Cryer firmly believes that his show's producers made an honest effort to help Sheen.
He told reporters, "When it came time to make the ultimate decision, which was someplace that nobody wanted to go, [they] did something that in my belief saved my friend Charlie Sheen's life."
Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men in March following a series of rants against Lorre.
