Kutcher came aboard the series, which is wrapping up after 12 seasons, in 2011 after the ouster of original star Charlie Sheen, who was shown the door after a run of volatile behavior. The actor, who broke through with the sitcom "That '70s Show," plays internet billionaire Walden Schmidt on the CBS show.

Kutcher went on to call Cryer, who plays Alan Harper, a "true partner" and a "gentleman."

"You are a true partner in every sense of the word. In four years I never heard you complain and never heard you speak ill of another person even if they took advantage of your kindness and generosity," Kutcher wrote. "Your are a gentleman. You are a talent. You are someone I look up to.

"See you tomorrow night," Kutcher signed off.
