How Is Ashton Kutcher Going to Replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men?
Is Kutcher taking over the role of Charlie Parker?
Or will there be some other means to get Ashton into Charlie's house to live with Alan and Jake?
Surely they are not going to do a Bewitched type thing where Dick Sargent replaced Dick York as Darrin Stevens with no explanation, not even something as simple as having Endora cast a spell to change Darrin's looks.
Maybe the plot could have had Charlie having spent extensive time in re-hab, to emerge as a much better looking, taller, version of his former self.
Or they could have Charlie dying in some comic way, to have it revealed that he left his money, royalties and house to his ne'er do well cousin, Ashton.
They could have Charlie in an accident that requires facial reconstruction.
Two and a Half Men will not be paying Ashton Kutcher as much as they paid the ungrateful Charlie Sheen. Sheen got $1.25 million per episode, plus profit participation that brought the total to around $2 million per episode. Ashton supposedly will be getting a measly rumored $625,000 to $800,000 per episode.
$800,000 is more than I make in an entire year. I don't know what I make for an episode.
