Jon Cryer won two Primetime Emmy Awards for playing the role of Alan Harper. His first Emmy win was for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (when Charlie Sheen had the leading role of Charlie Harper).

Production was halted during the eighth season due to Charlie Sheen publicly making disparaging remarks about CBS and creator Chuck Lorre. Only 16 episodes were produced that season instead of the usual 22 to 24. CBS and Warner Bros. terminated Sheen's contract. He was replaced with Ashton Kutcher in the ninth season.
In 2012, Angus T. Jones (who plays Jake) appeared in a video for the Forerunner Seventh Day Adventist Church in which he talked about his religious beliefs and observances. He also criticized his TV show on religious grounds, saying, "Jake from 'Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character. If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it; please stop filling your head with filth. Please. You know, people say it's just entertainment. The fact that it's entertainment...do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, and especially with what you watch on television. It's bad news....I don't know if it means any more coming from me, but you might not have heard it otherwise. Just watch out. Watch out. A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He's (the devil has) been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around. So we can't play around. There's no playing around when it comes to eternity." Jones subsequently apologized to the cast and crew for any "indifference and disrespect" he showed to them, while not disavowing his views on the show itself. As a result, Jones was removed from the regular cast after the 10th season. (Jake stated that he was transferring to Japan.) While he was announced as a "recurring character" for Season 11, he no longer appeared on the show. In 2014, Jones officially announced his departure from the show stating that he had been "a paid hypocrite". Nonetheless, Jones returned for the series finale, with Jake explaining that a cash bequest from Charlie led to his winning "two and a half-million!" during a Las Vegas honeymoon, which he and his new bride invested.
