Washington: Ashton Kutcher is said to be all set for the September 19th premiere of the rebooted sitcom ‘Two and a Half Men’.
The 33-year-old actor is replacing Charlie Sheen on the long running show following Sheen’s much documented and publicised breakdown, which forced CBS and Warner Brothers Television to shut down the show and fire the erratic star.
Although Kutcher was more than happy to step into the sitcom world he was wary of the problems that he might face working with a cast that already knew each other intimately.
“Moving into somebody else’s house is a scary thing. Who knew what the dynamic would be and how everybody would feel?” Contactmusic quoted him as telling tvguide.com.
“I wanted to make sure it was comfortable for everybody else and for myself. And I think we``ve already found that,” he added.
Kutcher has initially signed up for just one year; however, the actor is being paid a reported 700,000 dollars per episode, which will instantly make him one of the highest paid actors on television.
