Charlie Sheen must feel like a complete dumbass right about now. After he launched a full-blown war of word against Warner Bros., CBS and Chuck Lorre, he’s officially unemployed and already been replaced.
Earlier this morning we reported that Ashton Kutcher is going to replace Charlie on ‘Two and a Half Men’, and now we have more details about the gig.
According to TMZ, Ashton will make more than half of what Charlie was getting--$625,000 -- but less than $800,000.
CBS honcho Les Moonves has already signed off and he will announce the show is coming back for Season 9.
Charlie’s base per episode was $1.25 million, but because of profit participation that number was closer to $2 million. He was the highest paid TV actor and blew it all away—literally.
So how will it work out on the show? Ashton isn’t going to replace Charlie’s character, Charlie Harper; instead he’s going to play a new character that moves into Charlie’s house.
My prediction is that Charlie Harper will overdose on drugs and Ashton will show up claiming that Charlie left him the house during a random drunken night out. Alan will be pissed that Charlie left him out of the will and will beg Ashton’s character to let him stay. Kinda predictable. One way or another Charlie is going to look like an idiot.
What’s your prediction as to how Ashton’s character will be introduced?
