PHOTO: Ashton Kutcher Replaces Charlie Sheen in New 'Two and a Half Men' Promo

Front and center, Ashton Kutcher takes his spot in the new promo shot for the CBS show, set to premiere season 9 on Sept. 19

Ashton Kutcher is fitting in just fine on the set of Two and a Half Men, as Charlie Sheen's replacement has taken his rightful place behind the show's familiar microphone. Fans of the show will recognize the set up of the new promotional poster, as Kutcher joins costars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones in front of the red curtain used in the original opening. 

The biggest difference (besides the lack of Sheen and the addition of Kutcher)? Ashton moved into the middle spot where Jones used to stand, and the Men newcomer is sporting the red bowtie that once also belonged to his younger costar.


The revamped version of the CBS show premieres on Sept. 19, as the fate of Sheen's character has yet to be revealed. Recent reports speculate that he may be killed off. The details behind the appearance of Kutcher's character are also being kept under wraps.

Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men, in March after a pretty public battle with the show's creator Chuck Lorre, and a bunch of questionable incidents that had plenty of people raising their eyebrows at Sheen's behavior. Sheen has now signed on to star in the new series Anger Management.

"I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept," Sheen said in a statement obtained by "It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth."
