Ashton Kutcher will play "an Internet billionaire with a broken heart" on the rebooted version of "Two and a Half Men" -- this according to the President of CBS Entertainment.

His name will be Walden Schmidt -- but unlike Charlie Harper, Walden will share no family connection to the other characters.

The new season of "Men" is set to premiere in September -- and according to reports, it will kick off with Charlie Harper's funeral.

He's a billionaire who ends up living in a house with two strangers? So dumb, even Ashton should flinch.

I'll watch only if his character dies. Preferably Brandon Lee style.

You think that screen writers would actually think about what they want to do...A Billionaire moves into a middle class neighborhood...pathetic. I won't be watching!

I watched a few episodes of "Punked" and quickly decided Ashton Kutcher was a king-sized a**hole. I will be joining the millions of viewers who will NOT be watching him. Unfortunately, the demise of the show will mean the end of the paychecks for hundreds of people. However...life, and television will go on.

You know Charlie would have left the house to Alan. Why not make Ashton a renter that acts like Charlie. I agree- why would a billiare want to be with Alan and his dumb son??? STUPID idea.
