According to the latest reports coming out of Hollywood, Demi Moore‘s boy toy husbandÂ Ashton KutcherÂ is signed on and ready to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men in March after too many exhibitions of extreme behavior, including allegations he threatened to kill his wife during a domestic dispute andÂ engaged in crazy,Â drunken binge fests with various porn stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ashton Kutcher will reportedly play “the Charlie Sheen character” on Two and a Half Men and will be introduced “in a way that satisfies the network and the studio.”
“We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family,” Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre said in a press statement.
Sources report Ashton Kutcher was willing to take quite a bit less cash than Sheen was making on the show, according to PerezHilton.com. Charlie Sheen was raking in about $1.25 million per episode, while Ashton Kutcher is reportedly willing to take half that amount per show.
Production on the 9th season of the show is expected to start this summer.
