Last week we learned that Ashton Kutcher has been hired by CBS and Warner Bros. to replace Charlie Sheen as the lead on the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men. Over the weekend, TMZ managed to snap a photo of Ashton and Men creator/writer Chuck Lorre having a powwow over coffee in Glendale, CA. It’s unclear if the guys were talking business or were just chillin’ in an effort to get to know one another but it is the first time the guys have been seen together in public since news of Ashton‘s casting was announced last week.
“Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre and his newest employee Ashton Kutcher made their first public appearance together this weekend … facing off over java at a Glendale coffee shop.
And so it begins … these two men will be working together very closely in the coming weeks and months in an effort to make the new version of Two and a Half Men a hit. Each has a large vested stake in the show’s success so I’m certain these two will become the best of friends very quickly. The new version of Two and a Half Men could be a major success or an embarrassing failure … or it could just carry on as it always has, entertaining its audience in the same way as ever. Will it be a hit? Time will tell.
