As we kind of reported last week in a roundabout sort of way but were too stubborn to re-do the Photoshops, Ashton Kutcher is CBS's new lead for Two and a Half Men. They're paying him a million. Dollars. An. Episode.
At this week's photocall, in which he stood next to his new co-stars and effectively wrote the next episode's first five minutes of jokes himself (hint: their respective heights might crop up a bit), Ashton said:
Humility like this belies a man of great gifts. Let's not forget that on being given the instruction, "Ashton, I need you to convey panic for me", Kutcher does this:
I've never, probably in my 13 years of show business, received more emails or calls congratulating me about getting a new job. I almost think I won the lottery - which I kind of did.
For any aspiring actors out there: it's in the eyes.
