Ashton Kutcher, the American actor and star of 'Punk'd' and 'That 70's Show', has officially joined 'Two and a Half Men', replacing the recently fired Charlie Sheen. Ashton Kutcher paid tribute to his predecessor in a statement today, saying he "can't replace" the troubled actor.
Kutcher will join the returning stars Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Holland Taylor and Marin Hinkle on America's most popular sitcom, which will return to screens next fall. Confirming his involvement in the new series, the 33-year-old actor said, "I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers' homes. I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!" Kutcher will reportedly earn almost $1 million per episode but it's not yet clear whether the salary includes any profits from reruns. Sheen allegedly earned up to $2 million per episode, before becoming involved in a public spat with creator Chuck Lorre. The executive producer spoke of his delight at acquiring Kutcher today, saying, "We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family. Added to that is the deep sigh of relief knowing that our family stays together. If I was any happier, it'd be illegal".
Word of Ashton Kutcher's potential casting leaked yesterday, following news that British actor Hugh Grant had reportedly turned down $1 million an episode to take over from Sheen.
