CBS has revealed the name of Ashton Kutcher’s character on Two and a Half Men. Read on to find what we’ll be calling Kutcher’s character and what CBS president Nina Tassler had to say about Charlie Sheen’s character being killed off.
CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler didn’t reveal all the secrets she holds for the new season of Two anda Half Men, but she did reveal two big pieces of the puzzle: a glimpse into what will (sort of) happen to Charlie Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper; and the name of Ashton Kutcher’s character.
During a CBS press conference held at the Beverly Hilton, she noted the mess created when Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men.
“What we learned is that we have an extraordinary cast. I was just at the table read on Monday. We have extraordinary writers, extraordinary actors and there is great value in hiring an actor like Ashton Kutcher.”
Unfortunately, all Nina Tassler would say of the rumors Charlie Sheen’s character would be killed off was, “It will be a big event.”
As for the other nugget of information shared, it was revealed that Ashton Kutcher will hit the CBS show as Walden Schmidt, an “Internet billionaire with a broken heart.”
Kutcher wasn’t available at CBS’ press day to comment, but Tassler added, “There is a tremendous amount of energy and focus and attention [on the show]. When everybody walked on that set Monday, you could cut the air with a knife. It’s very focused and requires a lot of attention.”
So, there you have it. Ashton Kutcher will be playing Walden Schmidt and there will be a “big event” in regards to what happens to Charlie Sheen’s character when the show premieres on Sept.19.
What do you want to see more on the Two and a Half Men premiere: Charlie die or Ashton take over?
