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...

Would never work. Ever. The only reason people would tune in would be to watch the train wreck of acting. That would pass in 2 episodes and ratings would hit rock-bottom.

Best candidate is Charlie Sheen. He is that show. Period. Replace Mickey Mouse with Chuck E. Cheese while you're at it.

It would be like replacing Frasier with a young Tony Danza. Or Sam from Cheers with Macaulay Culkin. Never going to happen.

I still think my original idea, of having the charlie character in some prison or hospital in some out of the way country, and a parade of women coming through complaining about STD's, cars they loaned him, money he owes them, drug dealers looking for their bag, etc etc etc.

They should never replace a Charlie Harper character. Just bring in a new character.

@ Jennifer They don't have to call the new guy Charle they can use the same cast members and replace the main guy with another person who hopfully who is a crack head like Charle. The show doesn't even have to be called Two and Half Men. Face it the show was starting to SUCK and wasn't going to be around much longer anything so why not revamp it and change it up a little.

If Charle is such a winner he can get someone else to get him another show and lets see how it holds up next to the new and improved Two and Half Men

I think a perfect replacement could be Steve Howey the nice looking young guy that played VAN on the Reba show. If they are going for someone younger than Charle which Ashton is than why not Steve.
