Ashton Kutcher

Negotiating to Replace

Charlie on 'Men'

5/13/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Deadline Hollywood says the deal is done -- Ashton is the new Charlie Sheen.

Chuck Lorre is in active negotiations with Ashton Kutcher to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" ... sources familiar with the negotiations tell TMZ.

We're told a deal has not been signed, but Lorre believes Kutcher is the guy who can keep "Men" alive and well.

But Lorre has two other prospects, sources say, if the Kutcher deal falls through. Our sources would not identify the other two actors.

We're told Lorre wanted Hugh Grant to replace Charlie, but those negotiations hit a brick wall.

Our sources say a decision on Charlie's replacement will be made by Wednesday.

Stay tuned...

Just remember, Lorre said he was writing a NEW CHARACTER for the show. Whoever comes on will NOT be "replacing" Sheen in that character!! Try to keep an open mind about where the show could go from there with a NEW CHARACTER. NOT CHARLIE... I'll watch the stupid show JUST because of that!

Obviously Chuck Lorre is the idot Charlie Sheen claims him to be. Seriously Ashton Kutcher? I can't think of a worse replacement. If he gets hired on I for one will be done watching Men.

Mathew Perry could skip rehab and then fall right into that character. No Problem

January Jonez, what's with your asinine prejudice against Jews? This story is about whether TMZ viewers like the idea of bringing Ashton Kutcher into the Two And A Half Men show or not, not about how much you hate Jews. We're not interested in all the people you hate in the world and your prejudiced stereotypes. Why don't you go to some racist website and knock yourself out, you moron?!!!

Depending on how the character is replaced, I think this is A GREAT IDEA. WOW, this will be a major WIN for the great Chuck Lore if it happens. I hope it does. I DID NOT watch with that Sheen idiot, but I WILL WATCH with Kutcher.

I used to like Men...they need to bring back Charlie or hire Rob Lowe, John Stamos, or Hugh Grant...all great choices. I will NEVER watch the show again with Kutcher in it...UGH, ICK, BLEH.

The show is finished, it was when Charlie left. No offence to Ashton but he should have stuck to modelling.

Ashton Kutcher will do okay. However, Hugh Grant would have been much better because his persona is close to the Charlie character.
