Jon Cryer To Pen a ‘Candid’ MemoirBy: Meaghan Ellis - April 3, 2014
Jon Cryer is best known for his starring role on the popular CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. However, now he’s looking to add another feat to his long list of accomplishments. The Primetime Emmy Award-winning actor is writing a memoir.
According to the Associated Press, the 48-year-old actor has inked a publishing deal with the Penguin Random House imprint, New American Library. An official statement was released by the publisher on Wednesday, Apr. 2 announcing that the untitled book is tentatively scheduled to be released next spring.
The publisher revealed that the book will consist of “candid” stories based on real-life experiences throughout Cryer’s 30-year career. “Jon Cryer has the fascinating stories, endearing appeal, and long-lived career that make for a warm, sharp, and funny look at life in Hollywood. His charming and hilarious personality translates perfectly to the page.”
Even though the publisher gave a brief synopsis of the book’s content, Cryer personally decided jokingly that the book would be about something else. He quipped about covering topics like ‘stamp collecting and monetary policy.’ However, he also revealed that there’s a possibility he’d touch on another topic – Charlie Sheen.
“In these times of truly global crisis when fear is outracing hope, I think we can all be grateful that the guy who played Duckie in ‘Pretty in Pink’ is writing a book,” he joked in a statement released Wednesday. “It’ll be filled with just what you’d expect from me; juicy tidbits on international monetary policy, catty comments regarding agriculture in Central Asia and, of course, forbidden anecdotes about stamp collecting. And maybe I’ll talk about Charlie Sheen.”
Although Cryer’s memoir does not have an official release date right now, there’s one thing that is set in stone where the actor is concerned – the 12th season of Two and a Half Men. On March 13, 2014, CBS released an official statement announcing the renewal of the show.
