UPDATE: It's now official.
The fate of Two and a Half Men has been up in the air for months, but now it appears that CBS may have finally come to a solution: Ashton Kutcher is in final negotiations to replace Charlie Sheen on the hit sitcom. A more formal announcement should come within a few days, but apparently the offer opened up to Kutcher after Hugh Grant passed on the opportunity.
Bringing in Kutcher could be a brilliant move — or it could be the nail in the coffin for Two and a Half Men. On the one hand, Kutcher has potential to bring in a younger, different type of audience, and his attachment alone could be ratings gold when the show returns in the Fall. He's also got plenty of sitcom experience under his belt thanks to That '70s Show. That said, the story line would have to be tweaked, and it's more than likely that loyal fans won't find enough reason to tune in without Sheen. As we wait for more details (and a confirmation), what's your take on the latest casting news?
