The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Thursday evening that the void left by Charlie Sheen in the Two and a Half Men series will be filled by the younger, hotter, and considerably less violent Ashton Kutcher. From THR:
The deal came together quickly in the wake of Hugh Grant passing on the opportunity to join the show. Now sources say Men creator Chuck 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.”
Kutcher has not confirmed the deal as of yet, but shortly after the story broke in the press he coyly tweeted: “what’s the square root of 6.25?” The answer, of course, is two and a half.
