Ashton Kutcher Replaces Charlie Sheen, But Not Really

Yes, Ashton Kutcher has been announced as the guy who'll fill Charlie Sheen's lumpy shoes on Two and a Half Men, but this isn't like when there was suddenly a new Darren on Bewitched.

It's not really clear yet, but I don't think Ashton will be playing the exact same role.

He'll simply be coming in as a lead on the show, filling in in the sense that he'll be the new star presence for the sitcom -- the anchor and stellar attraction.

If things go like I'm guessing, it'll be more like when Jon Lovitz came into NewsRadio after Phil Hartman was killed by his wife.

And that didn't work at all.

So will this?

I hope so, because Demi could use some more spending money!

The only thing good about that 70's was Mila Kunis... maybe they should have though of replacing Charlie with a female... or have that downstairs chick move in... and have Ashton be the nerdy downtairs guy... or do what they do in Spanish soaps, just start all over again with almost the same people with almost the same storyline... hmm, I might get into tv...

This guy is a himbo of the lowest order.  Why would any man be interested in watching anything he is involved with?  All he is cut out for at this point is romantic "comedies" like those done by Hugh Grant.  

Memo to the morons who hired him for Two and a Half Men:  Wrong demographic, people.  Wrong demographic.

 Hugh turned it down.

Update: Charlie Sheen is saying that the show will tank with Ashton. Gracious, as usual.

My local paper had a story that Hugh Grant was in negotiations to star on Two and a Half Men. That would be very strange.

He'll just be shouting out bad lines and scowling instead of slurring out bad lines and scowling

It says 'newly single' - is that a punk? Oh, never mind - that's an old cover. I feel dumb now.

 PS: Charlie exuded a kind of sleazy anything-goes quality that made him rather arresting. I don't think Ashton has that quality. He always seems sweet despite it all. Maybe the character will go in a whole other direction.

 If he lifts up his shirt on the show like he's doing above, I will watch EVERY WEEK.

 Judging form his movies, I don't think Ashton can pull it off. Sorry!

He wisely backed away but it made me think HGrant is maybe looking to do  US television à la Hugh Laurie, Tim Roth, etc.

The show was running on fumes anyway - only kept going by the talented cast - so they might as well try something new.
