Charlie Sheen to Ashton Kutcher: Let me call you 'sweetheart' while I trash your new show

May 13, 2011 |  4:50 pm

Ashton Kutcher Welcoming Ashton Kutcher to what he called "Planet Chuck," Charlie Sheen responded Friday to the news that his unfillable slot on "Two and a Half Men" had in fact been filled.

"Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer ... Oh wait, so am I!!," Sheen told TMZ.

Charlie Sheen responds to Ashton Kutcher getting "Two and a Half Men" job "Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton," he said, referring to former boss Chuck Lorre. "There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."

The four-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe nominee for "Men" had wished Lorre "nothing but pain in his silly travels" after the show runner -- according to his star, unable to "handle" Sheen's "power" -- suspended production of the popular show in February. The 45-year-old actor was fired shortly after passing those sentiments along.

Kutcher, meanwhile, told his Twitter followers Friday, "Thank you for all the Congrats on 2.5. Met with the team this morning.... We are already working on earning your Laughter."

The balance of Sheen's message to his fans? "Enjoy the show America," he said, leading into his prediction that "Men" will tank in the ratings without him in the cast.

Guess when you're obsessed with winning, it gets harder to play the good sport.
