It’s official! After speculation that Rob Lowe, wait, no – Hugh Grant, um, perhaps John Stamos or Jerry O’Connell would replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, turns out Ashton Kutcher has landed the job!
The Punk’d star has signed on the dotted line to replace Charlie, according to The Hollywood Reporter (via Huffington Post). He’s apparently cashed in on a “huge payday,” as per THR. Although rumors swirled yesterday about his casting, perhaps it was official after 9 p.m. when Ashton simply Tweeted, ” (-;”
About one hour later he followed up with another one: “What’s the square root of 6.25?” As for the answer, well, that would be two and a half! Ashton replaces Charlie on the top-rated sitcom after he was fired for his tiger blood rants against the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
