Jon Cryer, nominee for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, stopped on the red carpet to discuss the many changes to "Two and a Half Men" with Ryan Seacrest.

How he found out about Ashton Kutcher taking over for Charlie Sheen: "I heard it in a car, I heard it from [show creator] Chuck Lorre. I was like, okay? What on Earth is the show going to be now? He's a great guy, I like him, but he's a totally different guy," he said. All worked out, though, with Cryer (of course) saying: "I'm so happy."

On nude scenes: "There's lots of nudity... unfortunately, [it features] both of us... Not at the same time, yet. Actually yes, at the same time, what am I thinking?! But I know where they're going to be looking, I've made my peace with it."

On how he'd react if he won, and whether he'd thank Charlie Sheen: "Of course i would thank him. He helped me build the character. He's an integral part of it. I loved working with him. We worked together before the show, we did 'Hot Shots' together, and I was thinking that if he wants to come back on the show, he could appear like a Jedi Knight, where they glow blue... he could say use a condom, Jon."

So there you have it: Charlie's dead!
