Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men,' report says
According to a report in the online edition of the Hollywood Reporter, the former star of "That '70s Show" is close to signing on to star in the CBS sitcom, which was thrown out of production after Charlie Sheen was fired earlier this year. Kutcher would co-star alongside Jon Cryer and Angus Jones in an unspecified retooling of the show from executive producer Chuck Lorre.
The report relied on two unnamed sources. "No comment on speculation," a spokesman for Warner Bros., the studio that makes the series, emailed when contacted by Show Tracker.
Kutcher appeared on eight seasons of Fox's "That '70s Show" and has had a movie career with mixed results. According to Twitterholic, his is the No. 7 most-followed Twitter account, with more than 6.6 million followers.
CBS will reveal its fall schedule Wednesday.
