After months of buildup, press tours and cryptic insults from network suits, Ashton Kutcher has finally begun the actual work of filming "Two and a Half Men."
The former "That 70s Show" star, the heralded replacement for an off-the-rails Charlie Sheen who was fired after epic rants against the show's creator last season, plays Walden Schmidt, a broken hearted internet billionaire. Kutcher has received nothing but praise from the show's producers, who, in addition to plotting out the new character, have been hammering out a vengeful funeral for Sheen's Charlie Harper character that will take place in the first episode.
According to TMZ, Harper will have suffered a brutal death by falling off a Paris subway platform and getting hit by a train in the time between last season's early end and this season's premiere, allowing the producers to hold a star-studded funeral for the womanizer who helped the show reach number one in the ratings.
