“Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer … Oh wait, so am I!!”
CBS and Warner Bros Television confirmed Friday that Kutcher will join the cast of the hit comedy. In a statement Friday, Kutcher said: “I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!”
Sources inside the 2 1/2 men set say Lorre has 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.”
Sheen was fired from Men in early March, after a weeks-long media circus that had the actor attacking everything from Alcoholics Anonymous to Lorre.
