Dude, Sweet? Ashton Kutcher Joining Two And A Half MenS

It's funny, you almost forget that Ashton Kutcher — Mr. Demi Moore, professional Twitter enthusiast and camera commercial attention-hog — is also an actor. But he is! He fauxbanged Natalie Portman in that friends with benefits movie that was not called Friends With Benefits! He was on that bell-bottoms show! Which ended in 2006. And he was in that sweet dude movie! In 2000. Anyway. Now he is going to be on TV's number one comedy, replacing Charlie Sheen, in a deal that can only end well. Chuckles was making a shitload of cash — nearly $2 million PER EPISODE — but a source says Kelso is getting a "huge payday" to join the hit sitcom. Show creator Chuck Lorre has supposedly crafted a storyline to introduce the Punk'd kid "in a way that satisfies the network and studio." The insider, whom we suspect is Lorre himself, says: "It's really funny… People are going to love it." No pressure dude! [The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline Hollywood]
