“Two and a Half Men’s” surviving man Jon Cryer was a guest on David Letterman’s CBS late night show Wednesday night, ostensibly to talk about his part in the network’s broadcast of the Tony Awards this Sunday – but really to take questions from Dave about ousted “Men” star Charlie Sheen, who’s being replaced by Ashton Kutcher in the fall.
