Ashton quotes; “I can’t wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers’ homes,” adding, “I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!”
Be sure to tune in on September 19th to catch the season premier of Two and Half Men. Word in the tabloids is that Sheen himself will host a season premier party at his home with his goddesses to watch the death of his character Charlie Harper. Gotta love Charlie Sheen.
