CBS Confirms Season 9 of Two and a Half Men, Ashton Kutcher Signing

by at . Comments

It's official. Two and a Half Men will be back and Charlie Sheen will not.

Ashton Kutcher signed a deal to replace Charlie Sheen next fall on Two and a Half Men, although the newcomer says Sheen cannot really be replaced.

In a press release today, Ashton said of 2 1/2 Men: "I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people."

Ashton

"I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers' homes."

Chuck Lorre, creator and executive producer of Two and a Half Men, says he's thrilled his "family" is intact and "If I could be any happier, it'd be illegal."

Kutcher will NOT be playing Charlie Harper (that would make for some downright ridiculous Two and a Half Men quotes), but rather a new character.

It's unclear how he'll be brought on, but Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will be coming back for a ninth season, which CBS confirmed is in the works.

What do you think? Will you watch the show with Ashton as the lead?

Well definatly 2 and a 1/2 Men ARENT 2 and a 1/2 men w/o Charlie , so i think ppl there got 2 option , either give Charlie anything he wants to come back or just start a new show or sth , dont ruin such a great show with something w/o Charlie.

I think that Chuck Lorre is just being ridiculous for killing Charlie off, just to make sure he will not be able to come back! This is going to backfire big time. I have been watching the re-runs recently, and although I don't agree with the public ranting from Sheen on TV interviews.......he still made this series successful. I personally have no interest in even watching whatever twist Chuck Lorre tries to spin when he tries to replace Charlie with Ashton. What a joke! He is not even in the same league as Sheen. Just because he married Demi, doesnt mean he has any acting talent! That 70's show and punked???? Please! Oh and not to mention that there is NO plot without Charlie. Sure Alan, Berta, Evelyn and Jake are all awsome supporting actors, but you might as well cancel it , if Charlie is not going to be on it. I and many many others think that this is going to be the biggest mistake of Chuck Lorre career!

I had my fingers crossed Charlie Sheen would come back. Sorry but if Sheen does not return I will not continue to watch 2 1/2 men. When other shows replace stars with other people it never works out the same. I particularly do not like Ashton Kutcher.

Theres is no 2 and a half men, with out charlie theres no point to watch the show. This show was my favorite and Ashton Kutcher will just mess this up. The show will be a disaster and for my point of view theres not going to be alots of viewers fuck you Chuck Lorre

cannot imagine the show with sheen ... the show will be a disaster according to me , kutcher cannot connect in the manner in which charlie sheen did with the cast of the show , relly disappointed.
