Ashton Kutcher in Talks to Replace Charlie on 'Men'

Charlie out, Ashton in. Rumor has it that Ashton Kutcher is putting the final touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’.

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.
