Ashton Kutcher made his public debut as a cast member on sitcom Two and a Half Men when he joined co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones at a TV industry event in New York.
The trio hit the stage on Wednesday at the CBS Upfronts and Kutcher compared his new gig with winning the lottery.
“In my 13 years of showbusiness, I have never received more calls and emails for getting this job. It’s almost like I won the lotto. And I kind of did.”
CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said: “Well, it’s been an educational few months for us. Thanks to a tweet … we all learned the square root of 6.25.” Tassler was referring to Kutcher’s tweet that he sent out after THR confirmed he would be joining the comedy.
“We could not be happier to actor, producer and multimedia mogul Ashton Kutcher joining the cast of Two And a Half Men,” she said.
Kutcher is making $700,000 per episode plus incentives.
