Ashton Kutcher Returns to 'Two and a Half Men', Showrunner Lee Aronsohn Steps Down


The Walden Schmidt depicter and his co-stars are close to sign a new deal to keep them on the CBS sitcom, while Aronsohn hands over his position to executive producers Don Reo and Jim Patterson.

It looks like Ashton Kutcher will not leave "Two and a Half Men" anytime soon. Sources say the lead actor of the comedy series, as well as his co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, are inches away from signing new one-year deals to return to the show for its 10th season in the fall.

According to Deadline, the former "That '70s Show" actor will earn about $700,000 to $725,000 per episode. Cryer reportedly makes a little less, while Jones earns $300,000 an episode. All three actors will additionally get signing bonuses.

While "Men" is close to secure its main cast, the show has just lost one of its showrunners. Lee Aronsohn, who offended some women with his anti-women remarks last April, has stepped down from the reins. To replace him, executive producers Don Reo and Jim Patterson will be upped to co-showrunners alongside Chuck Lorre.
