Who needs Charlie Sheen? Jon Cryer has landed a temp job

March 3, 2011 | 11:50 am

While Charlie Sheen is on a drug called … uh … Charlie Sheen and his hit sitcom is put on hold for the rest of this season, the only logical thing for “Two and a Half Men” costar Jon Cryer to do is seek another form of employment.

And nothing is too lowly for Cryer.

The actor has brushed up on his phone-answering skills to be the receptionist for Ellen DeGeneres.

“I needed the work,” he deadpans in a clip that airs Thursday on "Ellen."

Let’s hope it remains fictitious. Though judging from DeGeneres’ praise — “You do the work of two and a half men” — Cryer has something to fall back on.

If nothing else, we thank him for finally clearing up the secret behind DeGeneres’ slick moves.
