Ashton Kutcher on 'Two and a Half Men': I've "Won the Lotto"

The actor says he's thrilled to be replacing Charlie Sheen: "I got the best job in show business, and I'm excited about that"

It looks like Ashton Kutcher is adjusting quite nicely to his new role as Charlie Sheen's replacement on Two and a Half Men.

The actor, 33, appeared at the CBS upfront presentation in New York Wednesday, where he was introduced (like that was necessary!) to the press.

"It's awesome to be here," said Kutcher, who was joined on stage by his new costars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. "I could not be more excited. I never in my 13 years of show business received more e-mails and phone calls congratulating me for this job. It's almost like I won the lotto. And I kind of did." 

And it's an impressive the jackpot. Kutcher is reportedly making $700,000 per episode plus incentives for his new gig.

"I got the best job in show business, and I’m excited about that," Kutcher added.

The actor, who seems to fit right in on the set of the comedy, twittered a photo of himself and his new TV family.

But Cryer seems to have one tiny problem with Kutcher's arrival. "Did you have to get a tall guy?" he joked at the presentation. "Really, was that necessary? It’s (now) One and Two Half Men."

Now that Kutcher is secured in the role, we just hope all the hoopla can finally turn into some funny television-making.
