The star has struck a deal to replace Charlie Sheen on the hit comedy.
May 13, 2011
After Charlie Sheen's falling out with Two and a Half Men and subsequent firing from the show, nobody was quite sure what was going to happen to TV's number one comedy. Rumors started picking up last month that show creator Chuck Lorre was working on a reboot, but nothing was certain. Until now.
Word is out that Ashton Kutcher has struck a deal to replace Charlie Sheen in a prominent role on the show. While CBS has not officially commented on the situation, Kutcher took to Twitter Thursday with the message, "what's the square root of 6.25?" - the answer being 2.5, or 'two and a half'.
Apparently Lorre has constructed a story line that would introduce Kutcher's new character in a manner that will please the network, studio, and of course, fans of the show. With CBS scheduled to hold its 2011 upfront presentation on May 18, that will be a likely venue for them to announce more details about the situation.
