Ever since we reported that Ashton Kutcher was taking over for Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men, there has been a bunch of speculation about how the No. 1-rated sitcom would continue. CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler revealed details about the new character and storyline. The LA Times reports that Kutcher will play "Walden Schmidt, an Internet billionaire with a broken heart." His character will be introduced "in a two-part season premiere."
Tassler had this to say, "Who could have predicted that we would be here six months ago? Our whole focus right now is moving forward." Kutcher was not available for questions from reporters, at the tour. The popular show is currently in production, it did it's first table read earlier this week and is due to shoot the season premiere on Friday. Tassler talked about the energy during the table read saying, "When everyone walked on that set on Monday, you could cut the air with a knife," Tassler said. "Do you pay extra special attention to the first season? Absolutely." There has been talk that the premiere episode will open with the funeral of Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper, Tassler declined to confirm that rumor at this time.
I am interested to see how the storyline reinvents itself. I think that I will likely tune in for the first two shows to give it a chance. What are your thoughts about the revamped show?
