Jon Cryer working on 'candid' memoir

NEW YORK (AP) — Jon Cryer, an actor who knows a thing or two about Charlie Sheen and Demi Moore among others, is working on a "candid" memoir.

The Emmy-winning star of "Two and a Half Men" has a deal with New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Random House. The publisher announced Wednesday that the book, currently untitled, is scheduled to be released next spring.

According to the New American Library, Cryer will share "candid" and "fascinating" stories about his 30-year career. He debuted on film opposite Moore in "No Small Affair" and became known to millions as "Duckie," Molly Ringwald's pal in "Pretty in Pink."

In a statement released Wednesday, Cryer joked that he would write about stamp collecting, monetary policy and maybe Sheen, his former "Two and a Half Men" co-star.
