The state of his marriage to Demi Moore may be a topic of national conversation, but now Ashton Kutcher's latest lip lock is causing chatter.

Monday night's episode of the sitcom Two and a Half Men had Kutcher and costar Jon Cryer kissing after Kutcher's recently divorced character, Walden, hits on a woman who looks like his ex-wife but turns out to be a lesbian.

He then plants one on Cryer's character, his BFF Alan, to save face.

Initially stunned, Alan quickly recovers and deadpans, "We're here, we're queer, get used to it."

PEOPLE's TV Critic Declares Ashton Kutcher a Surprisingly Good Man

Originally posted 09/20/2011 07:30AM

CBS's Two and a Half Men is now actually one man, played by Jon Cryer, one near-man, played by Angus T. Jones, and one manchild.

That would be Ashton Kutcher, who made his debut Monday night on the de-Sheened sitcom as Walden Schmidt. Walden is nearly the opposite of Charlie Sheen's now-dead sleaze king Charlie Harper: Sweet, unsarcastic but – here we stay true to the show's gawping bawdiness – possessed of an astounding anatomical endowment that he soon puts to use.

The instant verdict: Kutcher was not at all bad. He was quite likable.

Jon Cryer: I Am a Troll

The other "man" has been heard from.

Jon Cryer, labeled "a troll" by his former Two and a Half Men costar Charlie Sheen – who later half-apologized – all because Cryer didn't rush to Sheen's defense in the latter's war against their producers, is silent no more. Nor has he lost his sense of humor.

"This is very painful for me, not the least of which … I'm sorry, I can't believe I'm saying this … The fact is, I am a troll," Cryer, 45, announced on TBS's Conan on Thursday. (After host Conan O'Brien introduced Cryer, and the curtains parted and he walked out, the audience didn't seem to believe he was there.)

"It's not something I like to talk about. My parents don't even know I'm a troll," said Cryer. "Of course, I guess they do now."

Jon Cryer Didn't Tweet About Charlie Sheen

Originally posted 02/26/2011 08:05PM

Jon Cryer has been mum about the recent hubbub over his Two and a Half Men costar Charlie Sheen – and he's staying that way despite reports that he broke his silence on Twitter.

On Saturday, reports circulated that Cryer had posted a message on Twitter saying he was "shocked" that his hit CBS sitcom had been "axed," but it wasn't the actor.

A rep for Cryer tells PEOPLE the account attributed to him is fake. "He's not on Facebook or Twitter," says the rep.

Sheen, 45, went on a bizarre rant this week in which he took pointed aim at his show's creator Chuck Lorre. The network responded by halting further production of the show. Cryer has not commented on Sheen, Lorre or the decision to cancel the rest of the show's season.
