Ashton Kutcher to Play Charlie's Son on Two and a Half Men

CBS has announced that Ashton Kutcher will be joining the show Two and a Half Men. He won't be directly stepping into the role played by Charlie Sheen, instead he will be introduced as a new character.

Our sources say Ashton will play a son Charlie never knew he had. Charlie Harper will be lost in the surf, presumed dead, and his brother Alan and mother Evelyn will fight over who inherits his beach house. There will be a knock on the door, and Ashton will make his entrance, tracking down the father he never knew.

We would have thought Ashton Kutcher would have better things to do than get involved in Two and a Half Men. Then we tried to think of what those things were. Nothing else came to mind. If Ashton can keep the show going for a season or two he'll at least earn some walking around money to continue hanging out with Demi Moore.

Charlie Sheen is bitter: "Enjoy the show America. Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."

But I am guessing though that costars John Cryer and Angus T. Jones are giving high fives all around that Chuck Lorre is keeping the rest of the cast and crew employed. Will America watch? Yes.

Though the writing is excellent, Charlie nailed his role and lived the same life of debauchery on and off set. That made the show even more realistic. Charlie Sheen is a natural actor who never appreciated his gifts; in turn, Ashton is just a hack in talent compared to Charlie - even when he is buzzed on the set.

I really don't think they should kill off the character - keep a backup plan of Charlie coming back once he gets his act together (if ever).
