News: Charlie Sheen’s getting replaced!

You will probably all know, one of the most famous sitcoms in the world, Two and a half Men! This show has been on the television for quite a while now. The star from the show, Charlie Sheen, has been famously fired during a fight with his producer about his behavior on and off set. He is not capable of running the show anymore since he is an alcoholic and a drug addict. After he got fired, the producers stopped the show and Charlie Sheen got kicked out of the show for good.

However, because the show is so popular the ‘Two and a Half Men’-crew had to search for a worthy follower of Charlie Sheen. They contacted tons of famous people, even Hugh Grant was asked to replace Charlie Sheen, but he turned the offer down. Now it’s finally official: Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen in ‘Two and a Half Men’. Ashton says: “I can’t wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers’ homes. I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!” Ashton Kutcher himself possibly delivered a clue by sending out this tweet: ‘What’s the square root of 6.25? The answer is 2.5’.

We just have to wait a little bit more, before we can enjoy our favorite show again. In the Staffhouse people love this program, so we are definitely glad it won’t disappear from the Television forever! 😀
