The Hollywood Reporter says the exact dollar figure he will be paid is not known but a source says Kutcher is getting a “huge payday” to join the hit sitcom.
This deal came through just days after negotiations with Hugh Grant fell through.
THR reports, Men creator Chuck Lorre has crafted a storyline to introduce Kutcher in a way that satisfies the network and studio.
“It’s really funny,” says one source. “People are going to love it.”
Kutcher hasn’t confirmed anything, but he did leave a really cryptic message on twitter: “I'm starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I'll tweet it.”
A couple hours later he removed the tweet.
