Charlie Sheen Replaced by Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men
Ashton Kutcher has been announced by Warner Brothers as the replacement for Charlie Sheen in the hit comedy ‘Two and a Half Men’.
After alleged problems with drink and drugs affecting Charlie Sheen, the hit comedy show Two and a half Men was cancelled by Warner TV in it’s eighth series.
Now it is back, and Ashton Kutcher has been named as the new star and replacement for Sheen, filming will start for the ninth series in the summer.
Both Actors are prolific twitterers, Kutcher was involved in a race to become the first person to a million followers, while Sheen garnered around a million followers overnight as his antics became front page news.
Kutcher is married to Demi Moore and is probably most famous for his stint on the 70′s Show and for Punk’d where he played out practical jokes on his famous friends.
Charlie Sheen has gone on to create his own broadcasting centre at his house built around the social platforms, including Twitter and YouTube, that can now have bigger audiences than some TV channels.
There is serious money to be made by people with a large number of followers as companies sponsor them for promoting their products, there is nothing like a celebrity endorsement to get you noticed, especially a subtle one transmitted within a normal conversation.
