Jon Cryer has to pay the bills somehow!

After CBS put “Two and a Half Men” on hiatus as a result of Charlie Sheen’s latest antics, Ellen DeGeneres hired Sheen’s costar as her new office temp (watch here).

The 53-year-old talk show host is already impressed with Cryer’s receptionist skills: “You really do good work. You do the work of two and a half men.”

“You don’t have to say that every time,” he tells her.

“Well, thanks for being here,” DeGeneres responds. “I appreciate it.”

“I needed the work,” Cryer, 45, admits.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs Thursday, March 3 (check your local listings).
