CBS's Two and a Half Men is now actually one man, played by Jon Cryer, one near-man, played by Angus T. Jones, and one manchild.
That would be Ashton Kutcher, who made his debut Monday night on the de-Sheened sitcom as Walden Schmidt. Walden is nearly the opposite of Charlie Sheen's now-dead sleaze king Charlie Harper: Sweet, unsarcastic but – here we stay true to the show's gawping bawdiness – possessed of an astounding anatomical endowment that he soon puts to use.
The instant verdict: Kutcher was not at all bad. He was quite likable.

As if Ashton Kutcher needed another adoring fan.
"I'm already converted to the cult of Ashton," Jon Cryer, his Two and a Half Men costar, told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Primetime Emmy Awards at Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre Sunday night. "You will be too."
Kutcher, 33, who will make his debut on the CBS sitcom Monday – a casting change-up following Charlie Sheen's infamous departure from the show – is "a great guy," Cryer says.

Charlie Sheen's been through so much – what more could people say about him, even at a roast?
That was the feeling Saturday at a Comedy Central-sponsored roast at Sony Studios in Culver City, Calif., where friends of the actor lobbed insults his way – but in interviews before the event, wished him nothing but good luck.
An edited version of the shindig will air on the cable network Sept. 19, opposite the debut of Ashton Kutcher on Sheen's former CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men.

Two and a half men? You could fit a dozen times that many people into Ashton Kutcher's enormous, luxurious trailer that he'll reportedly use while filming CBS's Two and a Half Men this season.
More than 1,000 square feet? Check. Seven 60-inch, 3-D plasma TVs? Check. Two bathrooms, a kitchen with granite counter tops, a conference area? Check, check, check.
And the network will be writing some serious checks, too – $8,750 a week – to rent the palace-on-wheels for its new star, 33, who replaces Charlie Sheen on the top-rated sitcom, reports London's Daily Mail.

Goodbye, Charlie. Hello, Ashton.
In a last goodbye, Friday night brought the taping of the funeral of Charlie Sheen's character Charlie Harper on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, according to reports from the closed set.
Also there to appear in the season premiere: Ashton Kutcher, who is joining the cast. In the show's readjusted storyline, Charlie's Malibu bachelor pad is being bought by broken-hearted Internet mogul Walter Schmidt, played by Kutcher.
No word yet on the cause of Harper's death, which reportedly is being kept secret by the series' creator and executive producer, Chuck Lorre.

No bowling shirt, no problem.
In the first peek at Ashton Kutcher's debut on Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen's replacement leaves little to the imagination.
"All will be revealed," the sign held by nearly nude Kutcher, 33, along with equally underdressed cast mates Jon Cryer and Angus Jones, reads.
And for those wondering how Kutcher will fill Sheen shoes, producers say he won't be playing the bowling shirt-sporting, womanizing Charlie Harper.

Charlie Sheen called him a "turncoat, a traitor, a troll", but Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer had only nice things to say about his former costar after news broke that Ashton Kutcher is joining the sitcom.
"I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. I'm extremely proud of the work we've done together, and I will miss him," the actor, 46, says in a statement. "But I'm also looking forward to this new beginning."

What's Charlie Sheen saying about Ashton Kutcher taking his job?
"Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!!" the actor griped Friday. "Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."

The speculation is over.
Ashton Kutcher, 33, is officially taking over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, CBS announced on Friday.
"I can't replace Charlie Sheen, but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!" Kutcher, 33, said in a statement.
"We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family," the hit show's creator Chuck Lorre said.
