I know, it’s kind of been a “That 70′s Show” casting call….first Laura, now…Ashton
It’s confirmed that Ashton Kutcher will take over the role vacated by Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men.
Insiders told the Hollywood Reporter that Ashton is super-close to signing a deal to join the hit sitcom, TVLine (a very reliable source of Hollywood intel) says it’s “official”, and Ashton tweeted “What’s the square root of 6.25?” — the answer is 2.5.
CBS and Warner Bros studios have now confirmed this.
The news comes just a day after reports that Hugh Grant turned down the role. You know what? Hugh would’ve been way better than Ashton. Casting Hugh would’ve been unexpected and interesting — and I say that as a definite non-fan of Two and a Half Men — whereas casting Ashton is… kind of mediocre.
