Ashton Kutcher lands on 'Two and a Half Men'

NEW YORK (AP) – The hit television comedy "Two and a Half Men" is replacing troubled star Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher.

Producer Warner Bros., which makes the series for CBS, said Friday it had signed the comic actor for next season. The deal apparently came together quickly, following reports that negotiations with film actor Hugh Grant for the role had fallen through.

Kutcher is familiar to television audiences through his role on Fox's "That 70s Show," film roles like the romantic comedy "No Strings Attached" and production of shows like MTV's "Punk'd."

Warner cut short the show's eighth season and fired Sheen two months following his public implosion through hard partying and angry criticism of show creator Chuck Lorre.
