The Half Man Is The Only 'Two And A Half Men' Cast Member To Age In 12 Years

Today we know them as manly men, men, men, but it didn't start out that way.

Though the show seems to have been huge forever, "Two and a Half Men" began as a pilot back in 2003. Since that time, the series has gone through a lot of changes and even some controversies. Charlie Sheen became a rock star from Mars, Ashton Kutcher stepped in to replace him and later Angus T. Jones left. Amazingly, through all its ups and downs, "Two and a Half Men" has largely remained an Emmy-winning staple on CBS.

Now that the show is ending its 12-season-run this Thursday, here's a look back at the cast when it first began:
