Story by Jack Foley
ASHTON Kutcher is set to return for another series of Two And A Half Men having replaced Charlie Sheen to positive ratings effect.
Speaking at the CBS’ press tour event in Pasadena this week, the actor said he had enjoyed playing Walden Schmidt and could see himself returning for more.
He has two films to shoot during the summer hiatus but spoke positively about the possibility of reprising his role for a second season.
Entertainment Weekly is quoting him as saying: “The deal we structured was a test deal. The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here. I think people are responding to it.
“For me, having a show that people like and want more of – that’ll dictate my decision. I have a couple features I’m going to do in the summer. Right now, I’m looking at [the summer features] as a hiatus. I’m interested in coming back.”
Kutcher’s comments follow those made by CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler to Variety in which she confirmed that the channel was keen to keep the winning formula and was already in negotiations to make it happen.
Two And A Half Men screens on Comedy Central in the UK.
