Sorry Charlie! Ashton Kutcher Will Star
Published reports say Ashton Kutcher may have been tapped to replace Charlie Sheen on prime-time TV.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "two sources close to the deal-making" say Kutcher is poised to replace Charlie Sheen on the popular CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men.
The Hollywood Reporter says:
The deal came together quickly in the wake of Hugh Grant passing on the opportunity to join the show. Now sources say Men creator Chuck Lorre has crafted a story line to introduce Kutcher in a way that satisfies the network and studio. "It's really funny," says one source. "People are going to love it."
CBS has not confirmed the report, and Kutcher, who has nearly 7 million followers on Twitter, posted this message.
"I'm starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I'll tweet it."
