According to the Hollywood Reporter,after months of speculation, rumors and uncertainty, it looks like the producers of "Two and a Half Men" have their other man. Ashton Kutcher is putting the final touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, two unnamed sources close to the negotiations say that Kutcher is putting the "final touches" on a deal to replace Sheen. While reps for the show and Kutcher declined to comment, the Reporter said the deal is "all but signed," and Kutcher himself seemed to indicate that an announcement was imminent in a Twitter message.
"What's the square root of 6.25?" he tweeted followers on Thursday night. The answer, of course, is two and a half, a clever hint that the actor could be making his return to scripted TV for the first time since ending his run as dimwitted Michael Kelso on "That '70s Show" in 2006. Though an exact salary was not known at press time, a source told the Reporter that it would be a "huge payday" for Kutcher.
Kutcher's name surfaced on Thursday in connection with "Two and a Half Men" after a long line of other leading men had been rumored as possible Sheen replacements, including Woody Harrelson, John Stamos, Jeremy Piven and Rob Lowe.
