And Charlie Sheen's Replacement Is...

by at . Comments

Unless we're getting Punk'd, we now know who will be taking over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

Variety reports that Ashton Kutcher has signed on to the sitcom for the 2011-2012 season, with sources saying he'll receive a "huge payday" and creator Chuck Lorre has come up with a storyline for his character that satisfies CBS.

The news comes just a day after word spread that Hugh Grant almost accepted the role, and less than a week before CBS presents its upcoming schedule to advertisers in NYC.

Kutcher rose to fame on Fox's That '70s Show. Think he's a good fit for Two and a Half Men?

I loved the show two and a half men. I watched it from the beginning I know Charlie Sheen blew it but he was great in the role. I wish everyone would have set their egos aside and let Charlie return. You would have to tie me in a chair to force me to watch Ashton Kutcher on the program. There is nothing I like about him. I loved the cast of the program but I consider this no addition to a group of talented people. He might have fans out there but I am not nor will I be one of them. For the sake of the other actors maybe it will continue but this is one viewer that will not be viewing if Ashton is the final answer as a replacement.

Perfect. I'll be able to keep watching the show with the most creative writers. I'm hoping they kill off Charlie and bring AK in as a different character. Charlie Harper is tainted forever.

I think this is a good move. Sheen thought he was somebody special and he isn't, he pays people to stick by him, women included. I loved the show before, but I haven't watched it since Sheen's antics began, he's boring. Now with the has been out and a new guy in, I think it will be fun to watch.

Use your imagination...maybe Charlie leaves the country to follow some chick he falls in love with or maybe his plane crashes in the amazon and Charlie is missing...in the meantime back home a cousin (ashton kutcher) moves in with Alan ...maybe Kutcher is a struggling actor, or a closet homo, or whatever....Charlie could be "gone" indefinitely . Ashton isn't going to play Charlie role, that would be stupid.

What the hell????????!!!!! How are this gonna work? Is kutcher just gonna replace his character? Does Alan find his long lost other brother after charlie like, dies or something? They should've cancelled the show because it's not good without charlie sheen. I mean, Jakes not a cute little kid anymore, he's just a fat stupid lazy teenager, the only reason we didnt stop watching two and a half men after he grew up was because charlie sheen is hilarious! Not your best move, Warner brothers....
