Ashton Kutcher tried to be low key about his new job as the other "Man" on "Two and a Half Men" - we're assuming he's not the half, but we could be wrong - when he appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman" Wednesday, but Letterman was having none of it.
The veteran late night host worked Kutcher over for details, but the 33-year-old actor (who, of course, landed on the CBS sitcom after Charlie Sheen was fired) tried to play coy. (Despite the fact that he was on a late night talk show....where he'd be asked questions about the show. Why do actors do these things?)
After removing his bulletproof vest and helmet - Letterman did have some death threats earlier in the week - Kutcher revealed his self-described "Jesus" look and did talk a little bit about his character.
"It's part of 'Two and a Half Men.' Believe it or not, they requested this," he joked with Letterman of his longer haircut and beard. "I play a young, billionaire Internet entrepreneur who's just dealing with a nasty divorce, [and is] heartbroken about it. My character's name is Walden Schmidt."
Sheen's character does get killed off, but Kutcher claims he has no idea how this comes to pass. "He dies because he's no longer living...It's a death scenario." Thanks, Ashton.
How does "Walden Schmidt" arrive on the show in the first place? "I show up when Jon Cryer's character needs me the most." Again, so helpful.
"I'll say this," Kutcher tells Letterman. "I'm very heartbroken over this breakup that's taken place. The breakup with my wife...and I may, in some way, shape, or form, be trying to kill myself."
Which clearly doesn't make this sitcom sound funny at all. In a last attempt to save this drowning conversation, Kutcher promises that "It's the same show...it's just the dynamics have shifted."
"I think it's going to go through the roof, I really do," he tells Letterman. "I've been laughing really hard." Will viewers do the same? We'll find out when "Two and a Half Men" premieres on September 19 at 9 p.m. ET.
Charlie dies, Ashton tries to kill himself. All they need now is for the teen to almost die from a drug overdose and you have a real knee slapping comedy. /sarcasm
Asston Moore=TOTAL ASS CLOWN
"People will think less of you"..hahahaha...even Dave knows alot of people hate this tool
hopefully he succeeds...
I think that he (Charlie) should run off with Rose and marry her. This way it would put closure to that part of the shows story.
Charlie was NOT the show, he proved this by his bonb of a one man show, without the writers who made him, he sucks! I loved the show, but I am looking forward to a new relationship being introduced. Sorry Charlie, your toast!
They should show live footage of really killing off Charlie. That would boost their ratings.
I can't beleive how many mean people are beaking off. Wow lots of bad karma floating around.
i am so so so sorry for every THINKING of trying to replace charlie. i know i have no class, completely proved
what the people were think, I am ugly, can't act, with no loyalty. My women are near as beautiful as charlie's.
But they are at least their age not trying to act and dress like she still is 40. Demi once looked good, but like all
of us, she has lost it, but trying to prove she still has it. The only good think I can say is Bruce did have class and gave
her to you. I mean if she looked liked Ms. Brinkley (Christy) that would have made Bruce look stupid, which we
no for sure he's not. But now you go and prove people right. 15-35 yrs old girls look at demi, and say what.
but u couldn't do any better, so hang on until she drops u. These are some of the things you should be saying
to charlie. Believe you me he will come out on top, because he is the best. go home to ugly brunette of yours
and say your sorry for her settling for you. and then leave quickly.
Crutcher, I don't understand anything you wrote... Um, what?
To the weirdo pretending to be Ashton Kutcher...quit playing with your mommy's computer and go back to your playpen.
where is my post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think Demi should show up & whisk Charlie away. Now THERE's a happy GILF moment!!
I agree,they should end the show without charlie.He was the show!
Hopefully he'll succeed.
Can he try suicide irl as well?
This show sux no matter the cast. Its geared for 12 year old boys.
I'm having Charlie Sheens baby;)
I'm looking forward to it. That show was a "winner" because of the writers, not because of charlie sheen. I have no doubt it will still be a great show, like when Diane left Cheers
They really should have let the show die. People forget that Charlie Sheen is an Emmy-winning comic actor. Whereas Ashton Kutcher was in "Dude Where's My Car?"
I don't think he's won an Emmy, but he has won a Golden Globe, so there ya go.
I'm a fan of two an a half men but won't be watching this season besides on the same night the roast of charlie sheen will be on comedy central an will definately be funnier than the CBS show.
Yore an idiot Ashton lol
I wonder how Demi feels about that beard tickling her thighs.
He can tickle my thighs any day!
im still not a fan of two and a half men but hating is not my forte. i will say that im not an ashton kutcher fan, being that he*s been in mostly unenjoyable movies n all..
Me too Moondancer. It would be better if something really good happened to Sheens character and he kind of decides to move away. Maybe he won the lottery and moved to Tahiti or something. We hope you and everyone is happing a happy day : ) moooooooo : ) it is a happy thursday : )
Horrible article. That interview was actually very funny and their conversation was very interesting. If I didn't watch it and just read this I would have thought it was a dull or awkward back and forth with Ashton dodging questions, but this was not the case at all.
So you had breakfast in bed Tracie? You freak!
I'm looking forward to seeing the first show. I hope it makes it.
I just hate it when the kill off a character on a show, especially on a comedy! Send them on vacation or something.
Have a great day everyone!
Don't do it Ashton
Ashton you are a toolbag. Go back home to your GILF.
GILF? Grandmother? In any event ILF her!
GILF? LOL! He's a pretty cool guy though, but apparently he used to be very shy back in high-school and learned how to be so confident with women only a few years before he got his TV break. He mentioned in an interview that he owed it all to the principles taught in the book "The Manual: What Women Want and How to Give It to Them" but I haven't read it myself yet.
I've read it and think it's great, but I really shouldn't say that because I don't want more guys knowing the secrets to seducing beautiful women! :D The less you know, the more girls I get! :D :D
Sounds like a sticky situation to be in....
Was it yours or someone you care for very deeeeply?
Would that mean surrounded by Asston Moores movie dvds
