Sorry, Charlie. Ashton is officially the other man in Two and a Half Men.
"I've never, probably in my 13 years of show business, received more emails or calls congratulating me about getting a new job," Ashton said.
Costar Jon Cyer had one complaint: "Did you have to get such a tall guy?", adding that they should rename the show One and Two Half Men.
One can only wonder what direction Lorre will take the show with Ashton in it. Will he go the easy route and play up Kutcher's dumb-guy persona?
Whether you're a fan of the show or not, you know you want to see what happens.
