A not-so-surprising rumor is going around that when the CBS comedy returns in the fall Sheen's role, Charlie Harper, will have met his end making room for Kutcher's character to move on in as new lead and new owner of Charlie's house.
Two and a Half Men centers around a hedonistic jingle writer, Charlie Harper; his uptight brother, Alan; and Alan's growing son, Jake. Charlie's free-wheeling life is complicated when his brother gets divorced and moves, along with his son, into Charlie's beach-front Malibu house.
The comedy series which premiered on CBS on September 22nd, 2003 starred Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones and has run for eight successful seasons. Earlier this year, CBS and Warner Bros decided to end production for the rest of the eighth season due to Sheen entering drug rehab and making disparaging comments about the show's creator and executive producer, Chuck Lorre.
It was recently reported that Ashton Kutcher has signed on as Sheen's replacement in the series, and now word has come out that CBS is pushing forward with Two and a Half Men to fill a time slot in the upcoming Fall 2011 season.
There hasn't been any confirmation from the actor or the network on who Kutcher's character will be in the series, but TMZ is reporting that sources involved with the comedy are stating that Kutcher will come in as a buyer of Charlie's house after the jingle writing womanizer meets his end by driving his car over the side of a cliff.
According to those same sources, the first episode doesn't begin filming until August 5 and the first script isn't officially locked in. Lorre is known for making changes to the scripts up until filming begins.
Two and a Half Men stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor and Marin Hinkle. Created and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn.
