Katie Cleary and Jon Cryer are Hilarious in “Two and a Half Men” Gym Scene
As the mid season premiere for “Two and a Half Men” launched the hit show into its final run, there was no shortage of the laugh-out-loud, irreverent comedy bits fans have come to enjoy.
Hollywood, CA – The CBS series “Two and a Half Men” will be ending forever after 12 wildly successful seasons. It’s been a long road for the series with plenty of major upsets and cast changes that have been making headlines for years. But the show is still as funny as ever.
The mid-season premiere reveals Walden (Ashton Kutcher) will discover how challenging it is to be intimate with women when his foster son, Louis, is in the house. Meanwhile, Alan (Jon Cryer) is chatting up gorgeous newcomer Katie Cleary at the gym.
The most memorable comedy bit in the show, called “Bouncy, Bouncy, Bouncy, Lyndsey,” guest stars actress and model Katie Cleary as the gorgeous gym bunny who bedazzles Jon Cryer’s character. Jon and Katie are priceless in a scene together where they are working out at the gym, and taking turns on an arm press machine. Then, Jon decides he wants to show off and prove to Katie Cleary (Katherine) how adept he is at using the exercise equipment. Unfortunately, he soon finds he cannot lift as much weight as the supermodel and “passes gas” in an effort to continue his workout. Cleary, visibly disgusted, gets up and silently walks away. The scene rates as one of the most hysterical moments in Two and a Half Men’s final season.
“Jon Cryer is such a pro,” said actress Katie Cleary, “he completely gave himself to the scene and of course the whole premise was hysterical. I could barely keep a straight face. He has such a rare comedic talent, on and off screen, and it was an absolute joy to work with him.”
If that was not enough, Cryer’s character Alan is getting married to Walden, played by Ashton Kutcher — two straight guys using gay marriage to up their chances of adopting a child.
Rumors persist that Charlie Sheen will be making a surprise appearance in the final episode of “Two and a Half Men,” but so far nothing’s been confirmed. Ashton Kutcher did nothing to quell the conjecture when he appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and nervously told the talk show host that he was afraid to answer. He wouldn’t deny or confirm it, but he still said he was scared in connection to the upcoming episode. Of course, all this makes for great publicity for the final season’s final episode. People will undoubtedly tune in to find out what he meant by that and, more importantly, to see if Sheen actually shows up.
Full episodes of “Two and a Half Men” can be seen on CBS.com and Hulu if you’ve missed a show. Be sure to look for the “Bouncy” episode and be prepared to laugh out loud.
