Ashton Kutcher is winning! Nabs Two and a Half Men lead
Sorry, Charlie: Ashton Kutcher is finalizing a deal to take over the lead on Two and a Half Men.
The tiger blood coursing through the veins of Charlie Sheen is no match for a certain star's boyish charm. Rumor has it that the one and only Ashton Kutcher is finalizing a deal to replace Sheen as the lead on Two and a Half Men!
While CBS, Warner Bros. and Kutcher's CAA agents declined to comment, sources told The Hollywood Reporter the deal is almost done and that Kutcher is getting a "huge payday" to join the beleaguered sitcom.
How will the show explain the change? Creator Chuck Lorre has apparently come up with a way that satisfies the network, Warner Bros. and hopefully audiences.
"It's really funny," said one source. "People are going to love it."
As for Ashton, he's not talking either -- except to post the following cryptic message on Twitter:
"I'm starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I'll tweet it."
Kutcher hasn't had a regular TV series acting gig since That '70s Show. Can he pull this off?
