    Posted: 03 Aug 2011 at 5:37am
 
 
Leaks have been coming out about how the producers of Ta½M are going to write Charlie Sheen's character out of the show.
 
Apparently, they're gonna kill him off & rumors are that Chuck Lorre not only did so quite gleefully, but insisted upon it. LOL
 
According to rumors, the new season will start out with a two part episode that begins with Charlie's funeral, attended by all his past girlfriends, of course, & some Hollywood celebs. I'm thinking maybe Sean Penn, Elvis Costello, Steven Tyler, etc.
 
The Ashton Kutcher character is supposedly going to be introduced as a potential buyer of Charlie's house.
 
 
I was thinking maybe Kutcher would be cast as Judith's wealthy brother/cousin/whatever who would buy the house, or buy another house, & somehow, Alan & Jake would wind up living with (sponging off of) him. I had several scenarios cooked up, all involving somebody else owning Charlie's house, because I think they need to keep that dynamic.... Alan as the cheapskate loser, sponging off of the other guy.
 
The show may very well have a few more successful seasons ala Cheers post-Diane Chambers, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it tank after one season.
 
Guess we'll see.

Never been a Kutcher fan...can't see this really working out beyond a few episodes.

It will be interesting to see the difference in dynamic with replacing the Charlie character and actor's I don't give a darn attitude with Ashton Kutcher's puppy like enthusiasm.

They could write Kutcher's character as just the opposite of Sheen's..... make him a wealthy, but clueless dumbass (iow... type cast him :-D), who relies on Alan & Jake to keep his ass out of trouble, during which, the comedy would ensue.
 
Or maybe a wealthy but clueless dumbass who, no matter what kind of stupid, ill-advised activity he engages in, like Charlie, he always comes out smelling like a rose much to the bitter, never ending resentment & frustration of Alan.
 
I had actually been meaning to start a "Two and a Half Men scenario" thread in which we would speculate about the possible plot directions with Kutcher's new character.
 
Anyone?....

Also.... I would think that maybe, now that Jake is almost a grown man, he should be living with Alan & (new character name as yet undetermined) rather than with Judith, although she could certainly have plenty of opportunities to show up & spread her usual bitchiness around.
 
And of course, all the other characters ought to still be there, too.
 
I hope they're reading this over there. They could obviously use my ideas!!!! TongueWink

Another thing that just occurred to me.... I wonder what will become of poor little Rose.
 
She was so devoted to Charlie & now he's gone.
 
Will she latch on to Kutcher's new character?
 
Will she even still be in the show?
 
Hope so. She was one of my favorite characters.

I'll miss Rose, too.
 
Otherwise---not looking forward to Kutcher.  I can only imagine it'll become a zany sort of sitcom with him in it.

I can see it working if they do it right.
 
Keep in mind, that show has always had good writing & that is the key to a good show.
 
If they play to Kutcher's "strengths" (I use the term facetiously) they can turn it into something pretty good.
 
I would guess they could write him as less of a leacherous boozing womanizer & more of a "Kelso" type, but with some kind of financial resources behind him. Like a rich, innocent-minded "Peter Pan" type who, because of his looks & money, attracts beautiful women like a magnet without even trying. Which he doesn't, because he's so clueless. But he gets involved with them & has beaucoup sex anyway, much to Alan's chagrin & envy.
 
And Jake's marvel & admiration.

I'm sorry, but Ashton Kutcher's lopsided hair (one side is flared, the other poofy) annoys the hell out of me. The way it's showed in those two pictures just makes him look awful. Am I the only one bothered by the lopsidedness of it? I don't mind long/ish/er hair on men. Just not this... Bad.

It's the "I don't care" look.  Oddly, he probably had a hair stylist labor an hour to get it to look like that.

Thor, I think that professionally tousled, labored over for an hour, "I don't care" look you're talking about is more along the lines of this....
 
 
 
Kutcher just looks like a dirty slob who's too lazy to comb his hair.

Isn't that the minimum they shoot for any show? I thought I heard or read that somewhere...all the same, shooting should be almost over, and so...yea, I agree - so it the show.

The only way the producers would allow Kutcher to get away with that look (especially for the promo photos above) is if Kutcher is actually playing that sort of sloppy, slacker character that he looks like.  That's why I think it's a cultivated and styled look rather than Kutcher just being too lazy to comb his hair.
 
I'll bet he'll be as much a pot smoker in the show as Charlie was a drinker.

That could all very well be true re: the cultivated image & the pot smoker things, but my point was that I don't think a professional hair stylist was involved or even needed. Whether on purpose or not, if ya wanna look like a slob who never combs his hair.... just don't comb your hair.

That oily looking mess on Kutcher's head is TOO messy & unkempt looking to be styled that way. Hence, the Leslie Stahl pic. I think that's kinda what a stylist would do in terms of a casual, uncombed look.

JMO, of course.

Situations like this always make me think of Chico and the Man. A lot of you will know what that means - Charlie Sheen may be "still with us," but apart from that it feels similar.

I've got a bad feeling about Kutcher. He just doesn't have the charm Sheen did, and that hair bugs me. Also, the ads and posters look strange, like they're forcing us to like Kutcher in place of Sheen.

I know it feels weird with Sheen not being there, Kutcher seems to fit the role right now but if he keeps acting like a kid he may lose my viewership.
