Charlie Sheen’s Replacement: Ashton Kutcher?

Out of  all the actors who could be considered to replace Charlie Sheen, I never would have guessed Ashton Kutcher.

Sources for the Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that funnyman Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’ next season.

Though reps for CBS, studio Warner Bros. and Kutcher declined to comment, sources claim the deal is “all but signed.” Kutcher also posted a coy tweet late Thursday night, asking, “What’s the square root of 6.25?” (By the way Ashton, the answer is 2.5. But I think he already knew that. Perhaps it was a clue to what he would be bringing in? Or maybe he was just be Ashton).

No word yet on how much Kutcher, who previously co-starred on Fox’s ‘That ’70s Show,’ will be making per-episode, though it is expected to be a “huge payday,” according to the report.

The news comes just days after it was reported that British actor Hugh Grant was set to replace Sheen, who was unceremoniously fired in March for his erratic behavior and for comments made about show creator Chuck Lorre. Grant’s deal fell through at the last second, due to creative differences.

Sound off: Is Ashton Kutcher the right person to replace Charlie Sheen? Or should they have gone with someone else?
