What Does Demi Think?

The new lead for TV show Two and a Half Men is...
nice boy Ashton Kutcher! Like that fits.
Charlie Sheen says he thinks Ashton is a funny actor, but predicts Two and a Half Men will flop with him in the lead role. Even in defeat, his ego continues to prattle unabated:
"Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer... oh wait, so am I!"
Kutcher: “I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'll work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!" Thanks for that reassurance, Ashton.
After Hugh Grant passed on the opportunity to join the show, the Kutcher deal came together quickly and an introductory storyline seems to have everyone happy.
The Sheen Circus has had many vultures eagerly awaiting the next disastrous step in his demise. He was fired from Two and a Half Men in March, after attacking everything from the producer and cast to Alcoholics Anonymous. Then he started an on-line show Sheen's Korner in which he continued his rants, and went on a US tour My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option, which crashed and burned. Curiously, during some of those performances, he said he wanted to return to the show, even saying he’d apologise to get his old job back. Yea...right.
But Charlie’s ‘slime factor’ will certainly be missed on the show – after all, it’s the central focus of all the scripts and the endless parade of bed buddies. Ashton’s image is just too “neighbourhood nice guy” to adopt the (autobiographical) Sheen Sleaze.
One thing’s certain: if the producers do expect Kutcher’s character to stain the same sheets, it’s safe money that his wife Demi Moore (18yrs his senior) will be watching closely from the wings!

PS: 04 Aug.2011 - So THIS is how Kutcher's character will be written in...
