AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler will mark his return to television Monday, September 25 (9 PM ET/PT) where he'll play himself on CBS-TV's Emmy-nominated prime-time comedy series "Two And A Half Men", starring Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer. In the role, Steven appears as Charlie's famous Malibu neighbor, playing loud music and causing problems for Charlie. This is the second time Tyler will appear on the show, having done a voice-over as himself in 2003.
Tyler continues to establish himself as a film/TV presence after having already starred in an array of classic AEROSMITH videos (such as "Crazy", "Walk This Way", "Janie's Got A Gun", "Living On The Edge" and "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing") that have been regarded as mini-movies. Tyler recently appeared in both the 2004 holiday blockbuster "The Polar Express" — as an animated version of himself — and in 2005's "Be Cool", alongside John Travolta and Uma Thurman. Tyler's acting credits also include "Goodnight", "Joseph Parker" and "Clubland".
In addition to his film roles, Tyler has had many guest spots on television shows such as "Lizzie McGuire", "Saturday Night Live" and "The Simpsons". He has also appeared in ads for The Gap and "Got Milk" and the popular Sony camera spot.
AEROSMITH's songs have also been featured in numerous films including "Armageddon", "Airheads", "Charlie's Angels", "Dazed and Confused", "Last Action Hero", "Light of Day", "The Lost Boys", "Not Another Teen Movie", "Rugrats Go Wild!", "Starsky & Hutch", "Wayne's World 2" and "Mrs. Doubtfire".
"The Two And A Half Men" episode, titled "Who's Vod Kanockers", was directed by Gary Halvorson from a story by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, two of the series' executive producers, and a teleplay by Don Foster, Susan Beavers and Eddie Gorodetsky. The episode revolves around Sheen's character's brother Alan (played by Cryer), who feels guilty when he learns that Charlie and girlfriend Mia didn't tie the knot because she had wanted him and Alan's son Jake to move out. Meanwhile, Charlie and his rock star neighbor don't get along.
"Two and Half Men" is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, money and, most importantly, love. More specifically, it's about the lives of two brothers, one brother's son, and the many women who surround them.
