Kutcher Replaces Charlie Sheen On “Men”

After a merry-go-round of names, including a rejected $600,000 per episode offer to Hugh Grant, a replacement has finally been locked for Charlie Sheen on the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” reports The Los Angeles Times.

Ashton Kutcher has joined the top-rated sitcom, and while his salary hasn’t been revealed it is expected to be a big payday for the actor. “Men” creator Chuck Lorre says he has crafted a storyline to introduce Kutcher in a way that satisfies the network and studio.

Kutcher beats a list of contenders for the part that also included Woody Harrelson, Rob Lowe, John Stamos and Jeremy Piven.
