After the 'Two and a Half Men' actor received death threats, FBI are set to investigate the report and to look into the safety threat.
U.S. authorities have opened an official investigation into death threats allegedly made against actor Jon Cryer, according to a new report. Cryer is said to have turned to law enforcement last Friday, January 15 when a menacing phone call to the set of his sitcom "Two and a Half Men" left him fearing for his life.
Producers were forced to cancel plans to tape in front of an audience, and recruited extra security to film scenes without any fans present in the studio. Now authorities at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are looking into the safety threat, reports TMZ.com. A show is scheduled to be filmed on Friday, January 22 without an audience.
Jon Cryer has joined the cast for comedy series "Two and a Half Men" to portray Alan Harper since 2003. From the show, he earned a Primetime Emmy Award in 2009.
