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...

Hiring Aston Kutcher is a horrible idea. He is a terrible actor!! When he acts I see that he is acting and not playing whatever character very well. Those commercials he does are just awful!! Hugh Grant would have been better.

It is probably best just to put the show out of it's misery now instead of finding a body to put in front of the camera.

Go ahead and see how that works for your Chuck. I'll never watch ANYTHING starring or produced by Ashton Kutcher. He is a typical Hollywood jackass, a moron's moron so to speak. It's Charlie or nothing and you know it. Probably nothing.

Replacements never work; it's like marrying a man on the rebound.
Not that I think Charlie should be given the job; he's the one that blew it all to smithereens.

How about Tom Sizemore? He's a good actor, knows how to drink and do drugs and make sex tapes so he should be able to fill Charlie Parker's shoes and he's reportedly been clean and sober for many months. OK, he has a missing girlfriend, but they've only questioned him about that.

They are foolish not to bring Charlie back. Many of us watched the show because of Charlie. His replacement would have to be some really funny good looking dude like Rob Lowe, Hugh Grant or Jared Leto!

If another aging pretty boy-type character is what Chuck Lorre wants, then Ashton Kutcher is the perfect fit.

Oh God, NO! He is much too silly and immature to be taken seriously. Mr Lorre can do better than, THAT!
