Ashton Kutcher Replaces Charlie Sheen, But Not Really
Yes, Ashton Kutcher has been announced as the guy who'll fill Charlie Sheen's lumpy shoes on Two and a Half Men, but this isn't like when there was suddenly a new Darren on Bewitched.
It's not really clear yet, but I don't think Ashton will be playing the exact same role.
He'll simply be coming in as a lead on the show, filling in in the sense that he'll be the new star presence for the sitcom -- the anchor and stellar attraction.
If things go like I'm guessing, it'll be more like when Jon Lovitz came into NewsRadio after Phil Hartman was killed by his wife.
And that didn't work at all.
So will this?
I hope so, because Demi could use some more spending money!
