In a post on Twitter he writes, "Winning Congrats to the cast and crew...CBS & WB..! My best to (Ashton Kutcher) !! The show must go on... You got the right guy!"
And Kutcher was pleased with the comment, replying, "Thank man. Always been a fan, always will be! BTW (by the way) you were 'born big'."
Charlie’s initial reaction was something a 15 year-old would say. The day Ashton was named his replacement he told TMZ, "Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer... Oh wait, so am I! Enjoy the show America. Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo (demographic) every Monday, WB (Warner Bros.)."
Meanwhile, according to financial documents, Charlie borrowed $10 million dollars from Warner Bros. during his last season on the show, despite being the highest paid actor on television.
The money was given on the condition he would pay it back during the first 13 episodes of that series. Warner Bros. got their money back right before they fired him.
Back to Ashton--I’m still not sold on him for TAHM. Hugh Grant would have been absolutely perfect for the role. But a family guy like Ashton? Not so much.
But just like the rest of the country, I’ll be tuning in to see if the show tanks or if Ashton can give the dying show some CPR.
