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?

I hope the show gets thrown out at this point. Without Sheen this show would have died years ago, like $*@% man.

Sheen forgot all the other people who that make the show what it is. A very good group of cast members, and supporting staff. All Sheen cares about is, HIMSELF, the hell with everyone else. I see Cryer as the COSTELLO, to Sheen's ABBOTT. All the cast is what makes the show for me. I still think Rob Lowe would fit right in to Sheen's spot. I love the show, but Sheen has become the biggest ass I have ever seen. Just what TV wants to show, another high priced, spoiled, rich, crybaby. And let's not forget the great example he is setting, NOT. Sheen has equally benifited from being on the show. As I said, I could still see his part being played by Rob Lowe, from the very start of 2 and half men. I don't see Ashton Kutcher as a replacement for Sheen, but I hope I am wrong.

Matthias Aaron -in Spin City it was Michael J Fox that was replaced not Charlie Sheen. They brought in Charlie Sheen after Michael J Fox left.

We want Charlie Sheen back, we want him. The show isn't the same without him, he makes us laugh sametimes happy, charlie sheen is the "two and half men" don't kill the show cause he have a problem, but that's doens't mean those problem will not go, problems always go and new ones will come. Giv us Charlie Sheen back.

This is completely f'ed up. I mean Ashton kutcher is a good actor and funny as hell, but charlie sheen is the f*cking soul of this show..... really disappointed in this. I probably wont even watch this show anymore..
