After much speculation Les Moonves and Nina Tassler have selected Ashton Kutcher to fill the void left by Charlie Sheen’s firing. A few days ago Hugh Grant had all but signed on the dotted line but backed away from the deal at the last second, not wanting to do 24 episode work load.
Kutcher, who’s had mainstream film success in a string of romantic comedies including Valentine’s Day and No Strings Attached is returning to episodic television for the first time since leaving That 70’s Show in 2005.
He’s getting a million dollars an episode. Thats 24 million dollars for a year. Jesus.
