This is terrible news. With the whole Charlie Sheen #winning train wreck, people forget that dude was genius on Two and A Half Men. Genius. You didn’t want to laugh at that show, but you did. Now Sheen is getting replaced by Ashton Kutcher, who I still don’t get…at all. Apparently Ashton got the gig after Hugh Grant passed.
From Hollywood Reporter:
Ashton Kutcher appears to have won the Two and a Half Men sweepstakes.
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.
