The “Punk’d” stud looked to be in good spirits as he posed with Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones at the Tent at Lincoln Center in New York City.
As for his new gig, Ashton told press, “I’ve never probably in my 13 years in show business received more phone calls and e-mails from people congratulating me on this job. You’d almost think I won the lottery or something, which I kind of did. I’ve got the best job in show business, and I am ecstatic about that.”
Jon Cryer added, “I’m incredibly happy they’re bringing Ashton to the show, but the question that I have to ask is, ‘Did you have to get the tall guy? Really? Is that necessary?’ But I brought myself to a place of incredible excitement about our new beginning, which I refer to as One and Two Half Men.”
