Jon Cryer

Emmy-nommed supporting actor for 'Two and a Half Men'

Jon Cryer, Emmy-nommed supporting actor for his portrayal of Alan Harper on CBS’s “Two and a Half Men.”

Last book I bought:
“Infidel” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali — Reminds me what true bravery is.

Book I’m reading:
“The Looming Tower” by Lawrence Wright

Total number of books I own:
A kabillion

Three books that mean a lot to me:
“Shot in the Heart” by Mikal Gilmore
“Chaos” by James Gleick
“The Rosenberg File” by Ronald Radosh and Joyce Milton — This illuminating account of the notorious spy case caused me to reevaluate the entire history of the Cold War.

Last film I saw:
“The Bourne Ultimatum”

Three films that mean a lot to me:
“Close Encounters of the Third Kind”
“Apocalypse Now”
“All That Jazz”

Last CD I bought:
Nouvelle Vague’s “Bande A Part” — Just buy it, you’ll see why.

Song currently playing:
“Fluorescent Adolescent,” the Arctic Monkeys

Songs that mean a lot to me:
“Let Down,” Radiohead
“Beautiful Day,” U2
“Get Over It,” OK Go

Favorite Drink:
Milky Way blended iced coffee from Jennifer’s Coffee Connection at Moorpark and Tujunga

Favorite Charity:
My Friend’s Place — Helping homeless teenagers in the Hollywood area.

Favorite Vacation:
Sitting on a beach, drinking a girly drink out of some sort of ridiculous container and reading a book, pretty much anywhere.

Favorite Vice:
Popsicles, Pop-Tarts and Pop Rocks

Five people who I’d like to see answer this survey:
The four other guys nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Emmy this year and FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin — It would distract him just long enough for a particularly naughty episode of “Two and a Half Men” to get by.
