**UPDATE** HOLY CHIT!!! Ashton Kutcher is Joining ‘Two and a Half Men’

It’s official folks!! “Two and a Half Men” will resume production with the newly cast member Ashton Kutcher!! I didn’t see this coming and don’t really know how the baby face Ashton will attempt to replace the absence of Charlie Sheen and am wondering if this is a good idea? I would of expected a more scrappy kind of character to fill the void of the spinless chinless brother with his son who appears to be stoned to get through the day and not to forget my favorite housekeeper who keeps them all on their toes!!
“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,” Kutcher said in a statement. “I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my a** off to entertain the hell out of people!”
Chuck Lorre, creator and executive producer of ‘Two and a Half Men’ sang the ‘That 70s Show’ veteran’s praises via a written statement.
“We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family,” Lorre said. “Added to that is the deep sigh of relief knowing that our family stays together. If I was any happier, it’d be illegal.”
Jon Cryers statement to the new addition to the cast:
“For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited. I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done together, and I will miss him — but I’m also looking forward to this new beginning.
Ashton is an extraordinarily talented guy, and his presence will be an asset to our show. We are old friends from our male modeling days, and we’re both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty.”
