Bet you didn’t think Charlie Sheen would be killed off “Two and a Half Men.” I also bet you didn’t think Ashton Kutcher, the former “That 70’s Show” star, would be the highest paid TV actor, a title Charlie Sheen used to hold.  Ashton gets $700,000 per episode!

According to E! Online, the new season will supposedly begin with Charlie Harper’s funeral. His house will be up for sale and Ashton will be a potential buyer. CBS President Nina Tassler told E! “I know that’s out there, but I’m not going to confirm or deny that. The mystery is a part of the marketing.” The premiere date is Sept. 19, so we’ll find out more then. Kutcher will be playing the role of a heart broken Internet billionaire named Walden Schmidt.

I’m sure Charlie didn’t really try to get himself killed off. He claims that Ashton Kutcher saved his career by taking on the new role. Charlie told TMZ, “I have always been told that I have nine lives, so it is going to be amazing to witness my own funeral, which is clearly a win/win situation because Ashton has just given me a 10th (life).” Typical Charlie.

Do you like Ashton’s new scruffy look for “Two and a Half Men?” Off set he’s certainly stylish with his reading glasses.
