Two and a Half Men First Look: Ashton Kutcher Takes Center Stage

Here’s your first look at a brand new publicity still from the upcoming ninth season of Two and a Half Men, premiering Monday, Sept. 19, at 9/8c.

Funny, it looks just like the hit sitcom’s old publicity still… save for one very subtle tweak. Can you spot it?!

    Would it have hurt to have Ashton wash & comb his hair and wear a suit that fits?

    • Ryan says:

      I think they have people doing that for him. If I had to guess, the new long hair and beard are for the role. I’m betting Lorre wanted a whole new look for his new leading man.

      • tasha says:

        Agreed!! Ashton did really well w/ his long hair on “Thats 70s Show”, CBS knows that so maybe they decided 2 jus try that out & C what the viewers think. IDK…

    • Rhonda says:

      Ashton looks that way because that’s the way the producers want his character to look like Actors have to change the color or length or style of their hair all the time for roles.

    • alex says:

      it’s actually kind of cute that you think he walked out of bed and made the execs let him take the pic like that.

  2. Laurel says:

    Jake use to be in the middle of Charlie & Allen
    Now Ashton is in the middle.

  3. Michael says:

    I wonder how it feels to bust your ass for years on a TV show and then have some guy come in and take center stage at last minute. Other than that, I did notice a small tweak in the promo pic: Angus grew even more considerably!

    • really? says:

      Not sure working 1 day a week is busting ass, but he should have thought of that before being obnoxiously hateful, and going NUTS! I’ve loved the show since the beginning, and hope Charlie gets serious real help, but he deserved to be gone, and I’m looking forward to watching the new season.

      • Stefany says:

        I’m just guessing that Michael was referring to Jon Cryer. And while I don’t work in the business, I think there is a little more than one day a week involved in producing a weekly sitcom – even for the actors. I had also hoped that Jon would get “promoted” in the wake of Charlie’s meltdown… and I was rooting for Andrew McCarthy… Blaine and Ducky, together again.

        • lisa says:

          I was hoping that, too. I wanted to see Herb move in with Allen because Judith kicked him out, too. They would have been hilarious together!

        • Michael says:

          I *was* talking about Jon Cryer. Kutcher didn’t exactly come in and take center stage from Charlie Sheen. Thank you :)

          • Kay says:

            I would think Kutcher is in the center of the picture because he’s taller than Cryer or Jones. I don’t think John Cryer’s character is going to get slighted. Cryer has been so gracious during this whole ordeal where his job was threatened because of someone else’s destructive behavior. In fact, Alan Harper might even fair better and be able to shine a bit more now.

      • Brenda Rathbone says:

        I totally agree with Michael. I’ve love Two and a half Men from start, Charlie deserves to be gone, Hope Ashton does well and we enjoy many more seasons, just hope it can center on something other than premiscious sex and get back more to just comedy.!!!

  4. Kat says:

    Seriously, he looks like the Geico caveman.

  5. evs says:

    Ashton is the half?! Cute

  6. Jeff says:

    Ashton is in the middle now, not Jake. Does that mean Ashton is the new half man?

    • Ryan says:

      Not to sound corny, but I think you nailed it. I think Kutcher’s character, Raymond, will end up being a long lost family member who inherits Charlie’s fortune. He will probably play a a dumb character similar to Kelso on That ’70s Show.

    • Lauren says:

      Maybe he’s the half man because he’s a pre-op transexual! Boom! Got it!

  7. Pia says:

    Kutcher’s in the middle… MAYBE HE’S ALAN’S SON?

    or Charlie’s son?

    either way, Jake used to be in the middle and wearing the red bow tie… hmmmmm

  8. jj says:

    Ashton’s Tie is Red.

  9. EveDallas says:

    haha… I was hoping that they would remake the opening sometime soon.. bc Jake’s head kept getting cut off.. since hes so tall. haha I think I remember the producers of the show said that the openings would eventually look like the two men were getting smaller and Jake would get bigger. Then when it happened I thought.. THEY WERE RIGHT! LOL!

    • Ryan says:

      It would have looked pretty dumb if they had just kept the same credits and photoshopped Kutcher in there and removed Sheen. I too am glad they are redoing the opening sequence. It would be cool if they actually sang it… and hilarious if it is purposely sung bad since before they had pros doing the job!

  10. Mikaylah says:

    Red bow tie on Ashton. Wonder if it means anything significant, or they just wanted him to stand out even more??

  11. wichita says:

    i see it! its that Angus T. Jones is looking pretty dang good

    • Kerry says:

      Angus looks very handsome in contrary to that sleazy looking Ashton. Bah, I hate him already. I’ll only watch the show because of that unbelievably good playing Jon Cryer. His humor is stunning, can’t watch the 8th season enough. He and Angus will make the show, Ashton doesn’t have to be there at all, they could have make Judith’s baby be a boy and be Alan’s son who moved in with them, that would have been fun. But Ashton? Please!!! Well, we’ll see if the show will be fun like it was for so long.

  12. waytodawn says:

    Wait… Kutcher is at the spot, where Angus used to stand…

  13. Grace says:

    Angus got hot! I feel kinda pervy saying that since he’s underage but you have to admit that kid looks good.

  14. Till says:

    Why do you think all is calculated? (Ashton in the middle, the red tie,…). You try to fathom too much, I’m sure all is pure coincidence.

  15. Jesse says:

    Seriously, this show needs to die already … the only reason to watch it AT ALL is Conchata Ferrell.

  16. Kevin says:

    CBS needs to end Two and a Half Men by May 2012 even if the ratings goes down the toilet. :( :(

  17. Linda J says:

    I wish that Ashton would see fit to get a haircut. I can’t look at him without thinking that he looks like a Jesus portrait. Not very flattering look for him, IMHO. Having said that, the other photo of the trio with them apparently naked and holding the Two and Half Men banner just looks inappropriate if I think he looks like Jesus.

  18. Lisa says:

    NOT GOING TO WATCH IT

  19. airhead says:

    I can’t spot the difference :/

  20. Ryan says:

    This opening sequence with the three of them singing always creeped me out

  21. Kate says:

    I don’t like the new look but then again I don’t like Ashton Kutcher and I don’t know why he was cast. He’s did one reasonably successful ensemble sitcom years ago and since then nothing but commercials and movies that flopped. He can’t act and isn’t good looking – if he weren’t married to Demi Moore (and occasionally cheating on her) no one would know who he was!

    Bring back Sheen and make Men good again!

  22. Tina says:

    If Men makes Kutcher a long lost relative and has him inherit it will be ridiculous. When you die intestate your spouse gets it all, no spouse then the kids get it all and if no kids or spouse then it goes to the parents. So, if they kill Charlie then Evelyn would inherit the house. Though over the years Charlie has had a will. I remember one ep where he was leaving everything to Berta and another where he was leaving it to Chelsea. After Chels dumped him he would have left it all to Jake so this plot is just stupid!

  23. drinking coffee says:

    The best storyline to integrate Kutcher would be… to insert him as Charlie. After a few shows, no one would care, it is humorous and interesting, and the producers of the show get to slap Sheen in the face by demonstrating he is replaceable.

  24. russel says:

    vulgar photo… just kill the show and come up with a spin off.

    I like Ashton, but this is a duchebag scenario.

  25. vince says:

    this show is going to go down the toilet faster than a dump soaked in fish oil

    Ashton who? butcher

    oh no wait the creators butchered the show
