According to Deadline, actor Jon Cryer (Supergirl) has recently shot down the possibility of a reboot for the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. During the promotion of his latest series, Extended Family, Cryer spoke with The View who asked about a reboot for the series.

He continued, “The thing for me is, when Two and a Half Men was happening Charlie was like the highest-paid actor in television – probably ever. And there has been nobody that has surpassed the enormous amount of money he was making.
He concluded, “And yet he blew it up. So you kinda have to think, I love him, I wish him the best and that he should live in good health the rest of his life, but I don’t know if I want to get in business with him for any length of time. If it was a one-off or…”
