It’s seemed for a while now that CBS would be replacing Charlie Sheen on their hit sitcom Two and a Half Men instead of working things out with him or canceling the show all together.
For a while there was a “mystery man” they wanted to bring on to replace Sheen, and it was just revealed that this mystery actor was actually Hugh Grant, who ultimately decided to turn down the job. But it appears that the network had a back-up plan well in place already as it’s being reported that Sheen’s replacement has in fact been chosen.
Multiple sources close to the show are saying that CBS and That ’70s Show star Ashton Kutcher are putting the “final touches” on a deal that would see Kutcher taking over for Sheen, who famously went off the deep end before being fired by the network recently, and is currently capitalizing on that highly publicized meltdown with his own tour.
Details of the deal are unknown but it’s being said that Kutcher will apparently be making a very, very good living from it…err, a better living than he already had, that is.
Also unknown is how they’re deal with the replacement process on the show itself. Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre is said to have written a storyline that’s not only hilarious but will satisfy everyone associated with the show, as well as its faithful viewers.
