It has been reported that Two and a Half Men actor, Ashton Kutcher, is currently in discussions regarding his current contract on the hit CBS comedy series. Ashton is only signed up for the current season and bosses are hoping he will sign on for another season.
Ashton Kutcher joined the show last year, after the show’s previous star, Charlie Sheen, was axed from the show, following comments he made about the show’s creator Chuck Lorre. Two and a Half Men has since received mixed reviews but the viewing figures have been great.
It is believed that Ashton Kutcher is currently being paid $700,000 (£440,000) per episode, making him the highest paid actor in comedy television. However, it is expected that Ashton will receive a pay rise if he signs on for another season.
Ashton Kutcher recently admitted that he was having a great time on the show and would love to return, while showrunner Chuck Lorre admitted that he could not see Two and a Half Men being dropped and was expecting a tenth season of the show.
Two and a Half Men airs on CBS on Monday nights.
