Two and a Half Men : Exit Charlie Sheen, Enter Ashton Kutcher

An explosive end to Charlie Sheen and a new beginning for Ashton Kutcher.

My spies in Hollywood  tell me that scriptwriters for the new series of Two and a Half Men are wrestling with how to introduce Ashton Kutcher into the long-running CBS sitcom.

Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen in May after Sheen went on a month long drug fueled bender and trashed the show  which made him the highest paid TV actor in America, pocketing $1.8 million an episode.

I am told that the show's producers have decided that Charlie will make a dramatic exit, dying in a car accident. One scenario is for Charlie and his Mercedes  to go flying off a cliff near his Malibu home. After Charlie's funeral, attended by a bevy of former lovers, his beach house is put up for sale. Enter the well-heeled Kutcher who buys his home and takes on Charlie's hard up brother Alan, played by Jon Cryer, and his son Jake. The will he, won't he let Jake and Alan stay on  is the running gag in the ninth season of the Emmy award winning show which airs this fall.
