Kutcher To Join “Two And A Half Men”
Two sources close to “Two and a Half Men” told The Hollywood Reporter that it will indeed be “That ’70s Show” star Ashton Kutcher who will be replacing Charlie Sheen. The sources said that the actor is currently putting the final touches on his deal to join the hit sitcom, and will reportedly get a “huge payday.” Kutcher has not confirmed the news, but tweeted on Thursday, “What’s the square root of 6.25?” The answer? Yup, 2.5.
Though Kutcher is reportedly joining the show, he won’t be playing Charlie Harper. Sources told THR that creator Chuck Lorre has come up with a way to introduce Kutcher’s character that will satisfy CBS and Warner Bros. Inside word from those close to the show also indicates that the sitcom is heading into production ASAP. Expect the new Sheen-less “Men” to appear on your fall schedule.
