Aw, man, in news that couldn’t suck more, this is really up there: both Ashton Kutcher and CBS have alluded to the idea that Kutcher will be taking over Charlie Sheen‘s vacant role in Two and a Half Men. After a deal with Hugh Grant reportedly fell through (and I personally think a witty, hot British man is EXACTLY what the show just happens to need), Ashton swooped in to take a chance, and producers and executives have given it the OK so far:
Two sources close to the deal-making tell The Hollywood Reporter that the actor is putting the final touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen as the star of TV’s No. 1 comedy. CBS, studio Warner Bros. and Kutcher’s reps at CAA declined to comment on the situation but a deal is said to be all but signed. The exact dollar figure he will be paid is not known but a source says Kutcher is getting a “huge payday” to join the hit sitcom.
Even Ashton isn’t really trying to hide it – yesterday, he tweeted ‘What’s the square root of 6.25?’ (The answer, of course, is two and a half.)
Honestly? I’m not all that happy about this. I was an avid That 70′s Show fan, and it took me YEARS to take Ashton Kutcher seriously. Now it seems like he’s probably going to reprise his Michael Kelso-ish role, and I just don’t know WHAT to think.
This is too much to handle on a Friday.

Have you guys heard about the DNA Foundation yet? It was created by Demi and Ashton Kutcher and it promotes awareness about and education on stopping child sex trafficking. (On a side note, these two will never split – now that they’ve officially created a ‘foundation’ together, these guys are on ‘til DEATH DO THEY PART. Break out the hankies.)
The videos are great, and Bradley Cooper, Adrian Peterson, Justin Timberlake and others are just delightful to watch, and this whole thing is way, way better than those stupid ‘Where do you like it’ or ‘What color bra are you wearing’ games are supposed to raise awareness for breast cancer on FACEBOOK. Um, guys? I’m AWARE of breast cancer, and you know what? Posting what color my fucking BRA is on Facebook won’t help the lady down the street who has no insurance and is dying from what she KNOWS to be breast cancer. The PSAs are great, and it’s respectable that celebrities with fortuitous pull are willing to take the time out of their day to film something that’s got meaning behind it. Ashton and Demi’s site is pretty awesome, too, and it’s got a lot of ways that you can actually get involved.
More ‘Real Men’ videos after the jump – which was your favorite?

My first reaction? PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. This could totally be a radio hit except for the verse with all of that coffee-themed weirdness (come on, ‘mocha latte’ just does not a good rhyme make). What do you guys think? Cute? Campy? Fucking stupid? Your call, as always.

According to InStyle magazine, Twilight stars and real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart know their up-to-the-minute fashion.
The couple was voted to be this season’s ‘Most Stylish Couple,’ followed closely by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick:
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis:
and Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher:
Other honorable mentions in the top ten included Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony:
and Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens:
All I’m gonna say is that if Kristen Stewart’s ratty black Converse sneakers and band t-shirts come back into vogue, I’m crawling back to the eighties where Flock of Seagulls hair and Cyndi Lauper makeup was appropriate, ’cause man … that’s just BS.
My personal favorite couple would have to be Jon and Kate Gosselin. And yeah, yeah, I know that they’re no longer together, but come on … their style? Just totally transcends any petty relationship squabbles.

“A lot of times my wife and I sit across from each other and tweet… it’s the same reason you send roses to a woman at work. Sometimes people like to be adored in public.”
- Ashton on his one true love, Twitter! I mean, Demi!
Are you picking up on this hot tip, people? This is the wave of the future. You don’t have to rely on flowers or jewelry or some former agreement of monogamy, just hop on Twitter! Try hashtagging your emotions, or if you have a tough time with finding the right words yourself, then retweet away! Retweeting is totally the new boombox outside the window, trust me. And if you tweet pictures of your significant other in his or her underwear? I’m pretty sure that a grander gesture does not exist.

Punk’d. Justin Bieber is going to be the new host of Punk’d.
This news hit me in waves. I was like “oh, I always love Justin Bieber news. Wait, they’re bringing back Punk’d? I wonder if Ashton … oh no!” And then my brain synced all the information together, and then it promptly exploded. That’s how great this news is.
Things aren’t set in stone yet – according to the original article, Bieber “has been all but officially tapped as the host” of the revival of Punk’d. And just in case you’re wondering, good ol’ Ashton Kutcher is going to be on hand as the executive producer of the show, so natch Ashton would be dropping by for some on-air shenanigans. Let’s just take a moment to consider the overwhelming douchiness that would invade the entire planet with the prankster team of Bieber and Kutcher. And now let’s consider the “celebrities” that weren’t famous when the original edition of Punk’d was around …
Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher are going to bring about the End Times by pranking the entire cast of Jersey Shore and releasing the most powerful douchiness the world has ever known at once in 2012. And that’s just the way it’s going to have to be.
