Jon Cryer is bringing all his candid, juicy, and catty tidbits to light in a memoir scheduled for a 2015 release. The book will likely chronicle his major roles from the hit movie "Pretty in Pink" to TV's current juggernaut, "Two and Half Men."

The Hollywood Reporter and other entertainment outlets are also happy to hear Cryer, 48, won't shy away from discussing the very-public meltdown of actor Charlie Sheen, who was replaced on "Two and a Half Men" by Ashton Kutcher after substance abuse problems, a fight with show creator Chuck Lorre, and the popularization of the "#winning" hashtag. Just how much Cryer is willing to divulge remains to be seen, however.

In a witty statement about the forthcoming book, Cryer said, "In these times of truly global crisis when fear is outracing hope, I think we can all be grateful that the guy who played Duckie in 'Pretty in Pink' is writing a book. It'll be filled with just what you'd expect from me; juicy tidbits on international monetary policy, catty comments regarding agriculture in Central Asia and, of course, forbidden anecdotes about stamp collecting. And maybe I'll talk about Charlie Sheen."

The book will be published by New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Random House. The publisher promises that Cryer "will open up about friendships and relationships, pay tribute to his mentors, and offer readers a front-row seat as he reminisces about his life and experiences in showbiz over the last 30 years."

According to E! Online, the imprint's publisher Kara Welsh added that, "Jon Cryer has the fascinating stories, endearing appeal, and long-lived career that make for a warm, sharp, and funny look at life in Hollywood. His charming and hilarious personality translates perfectly to the page."

Cryer's career began when he appeared opposite Demi Moore in the 1984 film "No Small Affair," and he has since made many appearances on shows like "Hannah Montana," "Hercules," and "The Outer Limits," earning him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

WalkofFame.com reports that in addition to acting, Cryer's philanthropic efforts include having served on the board of My Friend's Place, "a nonprofit Resource Center offering care that includes free emergency resources such as food and clothing in combination with health, educational, and therapeutic services to over 1,600 homeless youth and their children each year."
