LOSING! ASHTON KUTCHER TO REPLACE CHARLIE SHEEN ON "TWO AND A HALF MEN"

Multiple sources confirm that ASHTON KUTCHER is the new bad boy in town as he’ll replace torpedoed CHARLIE SHEEN on "Two and  Half Men".

The Hollywood Reporter said that the deal is inked as Sheen is put out to pasture as the star of TV’s No. 1 comedy.

The exact dollar figure he’ll be paid is not known yet but  Kutcher is said to be getting a “huge payday” to join the show.

Conservative estimates say a cool mill dollars per ep.  Sheen WAS getting $2 mill. 

Men creator Chuck Lorre has whipped up a nifty storyline to intro Ashto that should satisfiy the network and fans.

“It’s really funny,” one source said. “People are going to love it.”

Ashton later Tweeted about the news.

"What's the square root of 6.25?" he asked.

The answer is 2 1/2.
