Those expecting Ashton Kutcher to have a long and fruitful career on Two and a Half Men should temper their hopes. According to The Wall Street Journal, Kutcher only has a one-year deal with the show, and could be done with his sitcom stint by this time next year.
Because CBS has only licensed one more season of Men from Warner Bros. TV, the Kutcher contract covers just season ten. Were CBS to re-up the show for an eleventh season, a new deal with the Kutch could be negotiated, or the two parties could go their separate ways.
Kutcher will reportedly make $20 million for the season of Two and a Half Men. Think about what Charlie Sheen could do with that kind of money!
