Jon Cryer starred in the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men, alongside Angus T. Jones, Charlie Sheen as well as Ashton Kutcher, for the better part of twelve years. Cryer was a main cast member from day one and as the show evolved, so did he. In fact, he has changed so much, that some fans might not recognize him anymore!

When the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men first aired back in 2003, it was an overnight success. Fifty-three-year-old Jon Cryer, who played the brother of the infamous "Charlie Harper's" (Charlie Sheen), is not the preppy, clean-shaven man we came to know and love.

Gone are the carefully ironed chinos and sensible shoes, Cryer has upped the bad-boy factor and now sports a shaved head and sexy stubble.

For twelve seasons, Cryer played the clumsy and heartbroken "Alan Harper", who was somewhat invisible next to serial womanizer "Charlie" and heartthrob "Walden". In real life, too, Sheen (54) and Kutcher (41) received more attention then Cryer ever did, although we think he's fabulous!
