Generally a man behind the scenes, Chuck Lorre, co-creator and executive producer of “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory,” was front and center as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday.

“Men” stars Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen spoke at length about Mr. Lorre and how he’s helped their careers. Other “Bang” and “Men” cast and crew were on hand to congratulate Mr. Lorre, including Johnny Galecki and Conchata Ferrell.

Mr. Sheen, who has a star just a few feet away from Mr. Lorre’s, said he would trade the film canister logo on his star for a television, based on the fun and success he has seen while working on “Men.”

“It’s a lot to take in,” Mr. Lorre said. “I imagined someday my name would be on the ground, but I’d be under it.”

As TVWeek reported last week, Mr. Lorre said he is enthusiastic over possible multi-year renewals for “Men” and “Big Bang."

As for the future, Mr. Lorre said two successful shows on the air are enough for him.
