Well, the rumours are finally laid to rest, and the interest begins in what may be the most public firing and hiring of a starring cast member of any television show in recent memory. Ashton Kutcher has been hired to fill the empty shoes of Charlie Sheen on "Two And A Half Men." This after speculation went wild over various actors being tapped to join the show and replace the man who has taken his 'winning' streak elsewhere.
After many names were bandied about, it looked for a short time as though Hugh Grant was likely to replace Sheen, but due to creative differences he backed out earlier this week. Kutcher, of course, has had many years of sitcom work under his belt with "That 70's Show," but on this series he will be doing a lot more work as it is not an ensemble as the other show was.
The salary Kutcher is expected to pull down is $1 million an episode. Yup, tough work if you can get it.
Keep the recliner free for me.
