‘Two and a Half Men’ adds Ashton Kutcher to the mix

There was so much hype around Charlie Sheen when he was axed on “Two and a Half Men.” He filed a $100 million lawsuit. He rampaged. He unknowingly became the No. 1 spokesman for psychiatry in the world. But today, CBS announced his replacement on the hit TV show! Ashton Kutcher will come on as a wealthy, bearded Internet genius who’s unlucky with the ladies. His character is set to move in with Alan (Jon Cryer) and young Jake (Angus T. Jones).

They'rrrrreee baaaaaack

“Two and a Half Men” returns for its ninth season Monday. The show’s writers and producers had a couple of challenges dealing with the loss of Charlie Sheen, who met his end on the show in a a fatal car accident. But according to co-star Cryer:

“The writers had an enormous challenge and you’ll see they handled it beautifully. Change is often shocking but it’s so true to the show. And sometimes stuff you don’t see coming happens in life. And in that respect it was very true to life.”

Kutcher seems to be a good-natured, safe addition to the trio. I think after getting “Sheen-ed” last seaon, the show creators were looking for the goods Kutcher can deliver. But I guess we’ll see how the revamped cast pans out next week.

Open call for Charlie Sheen interns

I can’t imagine fawning over and picking up after Charlie Sheen, his ego or his goddesses, but for some reason, three University of Minnesota students are vying for the opportunity. One intern wannabe, Shanna Henderson, said this:

“I will keep Sheeniacs salivating for more day to day controversy.”

Another, Josh Schriener, said this:

“(Working for Sheen) would be like going from high school to the NBA.”

I can’t say I agree with them.

SHEEN, THE WARLOCK

So, Charlie Sheen has caused a media frenzy after being ousted from his hit TV show, TWO AND A HALF MEN. He has more than 3.4 million Twitter followers. (I’m proud to say I’m not one of them, but I can’t say I wasn’t tempted to get updates on a train wreck). And our pop culture cannon has new additions in #TigerBlood, #Winning and #Warlock.

This call for interns is screaming reality TV show, and Charlie Sheen is well on his way regardless. It’s gross, but, we’ll see what happens next.
