Wait, wasn't Jon Cryer *joking* about Charlie Sheen on Conan?

January 27, 2011 |  5:59 pm

Jon Cryer stopped by Conan O’Brien’s show Wednesday night to chat about his "Two and a Half Men" costar Charlie Sheen. And given Thursday's news about Sheen being taken to the hospital in the early hours, we wonder what he might have known that he wasn't spilling. 

"I'm checking TMZ, as I do every day, to check if I have to go to work at all," Cryer quipped.

O'Brien, whose talk show shares the Warner Bros. lot with Cryer's CBS comedy, cut to the chase to ask about the pesky cameras he sees stalking Sheen whenever the bad boy goes on a bender. And Cryer, the typically mum Emmy winner, took the opportunity to poke fun at his costar's recent run of car troubles.

"I said, 'How ya doing, man?' and he said, 'I'm doing OK, except that somebody stole my car and ran it off a cliff last night,'" Cryer said, regarding their morning-after chat.

"And normally you would not believe that from somebody. But from Charlie Sheen: You believe that because that happened to him. Twice!"
