Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that “a deal is all but signed.”
In Kutcher, CBS adds a well-known comedy name, a Twitter-universe star, a tabloid darling and business executive and TV producer (“Punk’d,” “True Beauty” and “Beauty and the Geek, to name a few) who, by all accounts is always easy to work with.
Kutcher, 33, remained mum about the impending deal but did Tweet: “I’m starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I’ll tweet it.”
If Kutcher isn’t joining the cast, he’s having fun with his fans and followers and increasing speculation. Ever-clever, Kutcher asked his fans “What’s the square root of 6.25″? (The answer is, hold for it…2.5)
The former male model has been married to actress Demi Moore since September 2005.
