Birthday: April 16, 1965 (Aries)
Born In: New York City, New York
Jon Cryer is an American actor and director, best known for his role in the series ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and the movie ‘Pretty in Pink’. Both his parents were part of the entertainment industry, so it was very natural for him to get inclined toward a career in acting. His first acting credit was in the Broadway play ‘Torch Song Trilogy,’ after which he played a few minor roles in movies and television serials, before his big break in the romantic comedy movie, ‘Pretty Pink.’ He wrote and produced the movie, ‘Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God... Be Back by Five,’ which was screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival. It took him some time to establish as an actor, as his initial movies and television serials were not a great success. His performance in the serial, ‘Two and a Half Men,’ got him two Emmy awards and things started changing better for him.
