LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Unless CBS, Warner Bros. and actor Ashton Kutcher are punking us, it looks like the former “That 70s Show” star is going to replace Charlie Sheen next season on “Two and a Half Men.”

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.

      me to anyone else and I would not

  2. Maziyar says:

    Dude Ashton Kutcher is 10 years old. What’s he gonna do? Fix some trucks on a skateboard????

  3. ekg says:

    Interesting choice. Don’t know that I buy it. He’s too young for one.

  4. sleepy girl says:

    I always thought Bradley Cooper would be a good choice.

  5. Marco says:

    Great Move !! He has a following that will tune in and watch just for him.

    Let’s see how they add him to the script.

    Sorry Charlie.

  6. rj says:

    When they say “replacing Charlie Sheen,” does that mean he’ll actually be playing the same character, or will they be introducing a new character? He’s younger than Alan (Jon Cryer). Will Aan now be the older brother?

  7. bebe says:

    that is too bad. i liked the show but now i will not watch it. all the different ways you can go and do with 3 and half men. that is not the way. i am sorry but they can do a lot better.

  8. itsme says:

    zzzzzzzzzz….hello ? anybody out there ? its me….hello ?……what ?

  9. AA says:

    There’s no replacing Charlie Sheen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    A.K. will never be even half the character Charlie is.
    CBS needs to try again

    1. Ron says:

      What’s wrong AA, now that Charlie lost his job, you will lose your biggest “BLOW” customer?

      Ashton K. is a much better character for a wealthy bachelor and much more believable than Charlie. Ask the LADIES.

  10. HLLYWD Reporter says:

    How about Arnold Schwarzenegger, he’s old ,out of work, and on the hunt now that Maria Shriver dumped his womanizing saggy butt. That would give everyone a good laugh or a visit to the ER for nausea and vomiting.

  11. kat says:

    Now I will watch it! Charlie was a waste of money! He is a has been- over the hill brat!

  12. Gin says:

    YES! YES! YES! I hope the writers figure this out and I will tune in and now watch the show. Charlie was NOT acting in the role and it wasn’t funny. It especially turned my stomach when Charlie proceeded to prove that he wasn’t really acting and he thinks he is something we should be worshiping.

  13. rick says:

    going to have to chage the title to 2 MEN beause JON CRYER is one man the kid is 1/2 and now ashton being way to young is only 1/2 so TWO MEN lol

  14. Dalva Rodrigues says:

    Poor Ashton, age, always chasing. How nice if he were 17 years older. Everything would be resolved. Ashton … is not evil, you’re five years older than me, and I love you.

  15. Ron says:

    Come on ladies, chime in. You know you love him, let the writers and producers know.

    Ashton is not an a-hole, like Charlie. He does not have that constant look of “HANGOVER” and he is a very funny and smart guy.

    Ask Demi, what she thinks.

    Good luck Ashton, we WILL be watching.

    Writers/Producers 1 vs. Charlie ZERO. LOSER !!!

  16. casting agent says:

    I HAVE CAST MANY PEOPLE for many parts and prefer the person who has life experience to pull off the part. if i need you to cry at a key moment i dont need someone who has to take an hour to FIND THE PAIN somewhere i want the person who has felt pain and can tap it on key. if i want an arrogant ass hole then why cast someone who is not already one i want a sheen type for sure so no matter who they cast to replace sheen unless he is as much an ass as sheen will never pull it off

    1. Ron says:

      You are Absolutely right, if you need an @SSHOLE, you cast Charlie. So good luck trying to cast him, because he’s TOXIC and he won’t be doing anything of substance or commercially successful again.

      And Ashton will do great and watch the ratings continue to climb.

      LOSERS need not watch, because this show will be a winner.

  17. Nico says:

    Ron you are a clown like Lorre. Kutcher equals FAIL

    1. Ron says:

      Thanks Nico, I am glad you find me funny but you are a LOSER, if you still believe Charlie could ever comeback, after he showed his true colors. People may have liked him as a lovable drunk, but not as an angry @SSHOLE.

      And evidently, you have never seen Ashton in anything he has done. Smart, talented and funny. And NOT an @SSHOLE.

      YOU LOSE.

      1. casting agent says:

        what your missing ron is this the part on the show is an ass hole womanizer so casting someone like ashton who i agree is very talented but CAN NOT pull off the role of an ass hole thus will not do well in this role so unless they are killing off charlies part and writing ashton into a whole diffrent role then this move is not going to be a good one

      2. Ron says:

        Casting agent, that’s exactly what they are going to do. Ashton will succeed w/o the need to be an @sshole.

  18. Sam101 says:

    Finally! Another decent actor on the show. Good luck Kutch!

  19. danny z says:

    by danny z entertainment .. well dont think cbs have not been rong befor and not that ashton is a bad actor but this is going to be a hard part to play for ashton. sheen play the part easy it is who is his . and ashton is way to tall . I also head thay would reach a younger group not for this show that will realy make it flop , the problen with cbs is that thay have to many young people trying to run the company and thay think a young lesner is always the answer .i could have told you 2 people that would have work and made the show even better when sheen was on the show . thay say danny z see the future in the entertainment field .

    Kutcher is a little punk …. and a SCAB

    1. Ron says:

      rioesmarex, that’s harsh. A SCAB, sounds like UNION talk. You must be one of Charlie’s pushers and/or @ITCHES !!!

      Get over it, he’s done and so is his FINANCIAL support for YOU.
