Ashton Kutcher: 'Two And A Half Men' Replacement For Charlie Sheen

Ashton Kutcher has officially won.

The former "That 70's Show" and "Punk'd" star has agreed to join "Two and a Half Men" as Charlie Sheen's replacement, The Hollywood Reporter relays. He's putting the final touches on his contract, which will offer him a "huge payday," according to THR.

Rumors around Kutcher's casting began to swirl earlier on Thursday. He most recently starred in the romantic comedy film "No Strings Attached."

I heard that Hugh Grant turned the role down. I have to admit, it would have been great seeing him replace Sheen.

Can't help but be curious as to how they will change the show with Kutcher in it.

I would have liked the guy from Gary Unmarried.
Or the next door neighbour in Married with Children.

And I think yes don't make it Charlie himself, but maybe long lost brother or cousin, who buys or looks after Charlie's house.

A couple of friends and I have been bouncing this around a bit, as to how they might work Kutcher into the show.

We too thought with the men's mother and her sexual exploits the "long-lost brother" could work but what to do with the Charlie character himself? How do you explain Allen living in Charlie's "casa on the beach", without Charlie?
Whatta ya bet Demi Moore makes a couple of cameo appearances as one of Kutcher's girlfriends? :D

Charlie Sheen was the main reason I never watched the show.

And now, I'll never watch it.

Ashton Kutcher!!?? His only talent (imho) is playing (being) "dumb"

Oh wait, Charlie played the sex-crazed, drunken, lying, scum and Ashton will play the sex-crazed, stupid, lying, scum. The perfect portrayal of the average American male these days!!!

EEEEEsssshhhh! :lol:

LOL

I just don't think anyone will play the drunken, sex crazed scum as well as Sheen did. I think he has too much first hand experience which is why he was perfect for the role. :lol:

Update:

"Charlie Harper, Charlie Sheen’s Two and a Half Men Character, To Be Killed"

The new season of Two and a Half Men is set to premiere in September, and we know that Charlie Sheen won’t be a part of it.

His battles with writer/producer Chuck Lorre have been quite public. He was fired from his gig as Charlie Harper on the hit show after some tough substance abuse issues and a stint in rehab. CBS and Lorre decided to part way with the actor, spurring his transformation from sitcom star to social media star and viral sensation.

Many wondered if the show, CBS’s biggest hit, would continue without its main character. Folks got their answer last month, when it was announced that eternal searcher of lost cars Ashton Kutcher would replace Sheen on the show. It was unclear what the word “replace” meant, as few expected Kutcher to simply assume the same character of Charlie Harper. That would most likely have been suicide for the program.

Now we might be getting a clearer picture of what will happen when the new version of the show premieres. TMZ is reporting that Chuck Lorre plans to kill off Charlie Harper at the beginning of the season. Although no definite script has been hashed out, it looks like one possible idea is to hurl Harper’s car over a cliff.

Man, Charlie Sheen really did piss off Chuck Lorre.

Its a shame what happened to Charlie Sheen and Two and a Half men.

But these stars get paid far too much and it goes to their heads. And they go out of control.

But still If I had that much money coming in each week, I'd be looking fro creative ways to spend it.

But not on drugs.
(or on ebay)

I loved the show, I am 60 and used to watch it with my mother who thought it was great also.

But here in NZ it was on far too early at 7.30pm.
It had far too much in the way sex to be on at that time of night when young children are still watching.

What time was it on tv in the USA ?
