So It Looks Like Ashton Kutcher Will Be Replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men

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.

  • Having NEVER found HG funny, I am glad.
    Having AK replace CS is not correct, he is NOT stepping into the same role, it is a new role made for him. CS character is gone.

  • It’ll be the like the first episode of Kate Plus 8. People will watch to see how they deal without the main male character, then never watch again.

  • John Gosselin would be better than Ashton Kutcher at anything, including making love to Bruce Willis’ ex-wife. Looks like Charlie Sheen was right, that writer he was fighting hasn’t got a clue.

  • I love Charlie SHeen and I refuse to watch this hot mess that will be replacing him. CBS nd Warner Brothers needs to suck it up and get the real man back.

  • I think ashton will be way better then the other loser guy he is a drug head and a ass hole
