Ashton Kutcher is definitely #winning. Sourced are confirming that Ashton Kutcher will join the cast of Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen is raging right now. Well….raging more, because he was already raging. ChiCitySports is 100% behind Ashton because well…he’s a vocal Chicago sports fan.
Two sources close to the deal-making tellThe Hollywood Reporter that the actor is putting the final touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen as the star of TV’s No. 1 comedy. CBS, studio Warner Bros. and Kutcher’s reps at CAA declined to comment on the situation but a deal is said to be all but signed. The exact dollar figure he will be paid is not known but a source says Kutcher is getting a “huge payday” to join the hit sitcom.
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 Lorrehas crafted a storyline 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.”
