    BBC News - Ashton Kutcher replaces Sheen in Two and a Half Men

    From BBC NEWS

    "Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen in the hit CBS comedy Two and a Half Men, Warner Bros Television says.

    Kutcher, who is married to actress Demi Moore, has hosted the prank show Punk'd and is probably best known as Michael Kelso on Fox's That 70s Show.

    "I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people," Kutcher said.

    Warner cut the show short and fired Sheen two months ago amid outbursts and reported problems with drink and drugs."


    I am amazed there is not a thread on this already. Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen on the hit program Two and Half Men. I'm not a big fan of this decision personally. I thought as the kid was getting older the show was losing some of its best humour and i assumed they would just end the show. I guess money talks.

    Anyone is better than stone faced Charlie Sheen. Fella can't act. He's been lucky his father was a good actor, because it's the family name that's carried him all these years.

    Yesterday it was Hugh Grant. I can't see anyone replace Charlie Sheen. I mean who's not watching the show because of Charlie Sheen?!

    But the family name is Estevez ;)

    I'm still not convinced that Lorre and the Network aren't in on the whole thing and that Sheen won't be back.

    Kutcher is barely funny and the show will tank. Not for Kutcher's eventual sucking but for the radical change in story that will have to happen. It's going to be too fast a change for viewers and give some whiplash. The only way they can explain no more charlie is if Alan and the kid moved out somewhere and Kutcher gets rammed in there.

    I'll be waiting for the news headlines of 2 and a half men canceled.

    Show has 2 more seasons left under contract.

    My theory? Kutcher fills in this season, and in the season finale, Charlie returns.

    So, this means they found a way to make the show even worse?

    When I was at the bath room I thought they might just sent Charlie in the show to jail and his cousin comes around and cares for his brother and the boy. But still... stupid.

    Charlie tells TMZ, "Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer ... Oh wait, so am I!!"

    Charlie continues, taking a shot at the show, saying, "Enjoy the show America. Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB." Essentially, Charlie is saying the age group that supported him is going to tune out.

    Charlie adds, "Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there." Of course, Charlie is referring to his nemesis, "Men" creator and Executive Producer Chuck Lorre.

    According to our sources close to the production, Kutcher will play Dan, the legitimate son of Charlie, who resurfaces after his father's death and inherits the Malibu beach house.

    This.

    The show is all kinds of terrible.

    It would be funny if him and the 1/2 man did the the pot smoking circle.

    EMILIOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! XD

    Back on topic: Hm. I really dont see Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Charlie. Just..doesnt feel right. I mean..if Charlie sheen's character had to leave the show to be replaced by a new one, ok i guess. But..the 2 of them have a different way of acting. I dont know. :S I guess we will just have to wait to see how it turns out.

    Wow, if they really kill him off and bring Ashton as his son, that's just as stupid as the idea I had while I lay in the bath tub. Are they forcing to continue the show like this because of contracts or do they really think this will work?

    I mean... helloooo?!?

    I have nothing against Ashton, but not in this show. This will not work and just killing Charlie off... uhm just no.


    I guess this is the point where people refer to the phrase "to jump the shark" and that's what the show will do, won't it?
