Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen on “Men”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Well, he did get his start on a television sitcom.

Still, it seems a strange move for Ashton Kutcher, once a member of “That ‘70s Show,” to replace Charlie Sheen on CBS’ hit show “Two and a Half Men.” Yet THR is saying that Kutcher “is putting final touches” on a deal that would have him joining Jon Cryer on a retooled version of “Men.”

“The deal came together quickly in the wake of Hugh Grant passing on the opportunity to join the show. Now sources say ‘Men’ creator Chuck Lorre has crafted a storyline to introduce Kutcher in a way that satisfies the network and studio,” THR reports.

They also say Kutcher has landed a “huge payday” to join the show. Probably not Sheen money, but a good pay rate, no doubt.

Kutcher had transitioned to film in recent years. He’s also married to Demi Moore, and a Twitter superstar. But can he hold his own on network television again? Looks like we’re about to find out.

    Yes! I know he’s a bit of controversial choice, but I may actually start watching the show with Kutcher in it, he’s always cracked me up. So glad they didn’t go with Hugh Grant!
