Ashton Kutcher has won the “Two and a Half Men” sweepstakes.
CBS and Warner Bros. Television have announced that he will join the cast of the hit comedy and replace Charlie Sheen.
“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,” said Kutcher. “I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!”
The exact dollar figure he will be paid is not known, but a source says Kutcher is getting a “huge payday” to join the hit sitcom, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news Thursday.
