E! /
"Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer revealed that "it's a little less suspenseful" on the set of the show now that Charlie Sheen is no longer part of it.

Former "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen recently revealed that he thinks his old show should end after the current season, but current star Jon Cryer seems happy for the show to go on now that it's Sheen-free.

During a red carpet interview before Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, Cryer had high praise for Sheen's replacement and for the current vibe on the "Men" set.

"(Ashton's) great," Cryer told E! News correspondent Giuliana Rancic. "He's a clown. He is up for anything, willing to do anything. You know, (a) great, great spirit."

As opposed to, say, a certain other actor.

"It's a little less suspenseful being on the set nowadays," Cryer said of the show without Sheen. "When you come into work, you are pretty sure (Ashton's) going to be there. And nobody's pushed his car off a cliff or anything like that."

But zingers about Sheen's oddly repetitive accidents aside, Cryer wishes his former on-screen brother and off-screen pal the best.

"I haven't spoken with him, no," he admitted, but added, "I wish him well. He's got a good team around him. I can't imagine he's not going to put out a good show."

Viewers will have a chance to decide that for themselves when Sheen returns to TV in June for his new FX show "Anger Management."
