CBS and Warner Bros. confirmed on Friday that Ashton Kutcher has signed on to replace Sheen on the hit television sitcom. “We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family,” “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre said in a statement. “Added to that is the deep sigh of relief knowing that our family stays together. If I was any happier, it’d be illegal.”

The confirmation comes a day after Kutcher hinted of his role on the top-rating sitcom through social networking site Twitter, where the actor boasts of over six million followers. Kutcher teased his fans on Thursday by posting a riddle on his Twitter account. “What’s the square root of 6.25?” The answer is 2.5, as in “two and a half,” Kutcher said in a tweet. Kutcher expressed his elation of landing the big role on Friday through a statement released by CBS to Access Hollywood. “I can’t wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers’ homes,” Kutcher said.
