Ashton Kutcher to Replace Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men”
Apparently, it’s not going to be Hugh Grant who will replace Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men,” but it’s -surprisingly- Ashton Kutcher!
Sources said that the former star of “That 70′s Show” is now finalizing a deal to join the hit CBS series.
Kutcher’s name surfaced as the new choice for the No. 1-rated sitcom after a deal to cast Hugh Grant fell through. Reportedly, the British actor passed up a large sum of money to join the series.
It is said that Chuck Lorre, the show’s creator, has worked out a storyline already for the former “Punk’d” star.
There’s no official confirmation about the deal yet, but sources close to the negotiations say that the “No Strings Attached” star will land a “huge payday” to join the sitcom.
His reps have not confirmed about it too, but the 33-year-old actor tweeted out this cryptic message Thursday afternoon: “I’m starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I’ll tweet it.”
Before Kutcher became a big-time movie star, he was regular on another sitcom, Fox’s “That ’70s Show.” He later executive produced and hosted “MTV’s Punk’d.”
Hopefully, Ashton could bring his magic with him, going back on tv again. Congrats for your new role, Ashton!
