Warner Bros. has officially confirmed Ashton Kutcher‘s new role as one of “Two and a Half Men,” after a flurry of rumors and speculation about the Charlie Sheen replacement process. Before Kutcher’s deal was done, the frontrunner for Sheen duty appeared to be Hugh Grant.
Though Grant was deep into his final negotiations for the role, he ultimately bowed out over “creative differences.” We’re not sure if the character designed for Grant is the same as the Kutcher will play – they don’t exactly fit the same type – but it poses an interesting question.
Which actor would you rather see on the weekly sitcom? Are you pleased that Kutcher is returning to his television roots or are you disappointed that we won’t be seeing Grant on his first American TV gig?
