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...

Ashton is a good actor but John Stamos is best for this part. He could be a distant family member that is found to also really be a son of Charlies mother that she gave to a relative to raise. Charlie and his mother were the only ones to know about him until Charlies untimely dath when everyone finds out Charlie left all to his brother with the conditions that Alan and his son have a home there for as long as they want and the maid has her job for as long as she wants it too. You think? LOL!

Ashton Kutcher is one of the least enjoyable, no-talent idiots on any screen, large or small. "men" was one of my favorite shows, please let them find someone with just a little personality! NOT KUTCHER!!!!!!!!

shton is not the talent of Charlie!!Our family is an avid watcher of the show and you should swalllow your pride and apologize to Charlie and get himback to be fair to the other cast members. Don't forget he thought of them and wanted them paid. Again,no Ashton K. Thank you for letting me vent my feelings. I know a little bit about the entertainment field.

Charlie Sheen cannot be replaced by anybody. When the day comes when I cannot watch Two and a Half Men with Charlie in it, is the day I quit watching Men. I think Chuck Lorre is a "contaminated little maggot" just like Charlie described him. Charlie, we all love you.
