Whereas CBS' decision to not move forward with 'HIMYM' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' proved pretty surprising, the fate of 'Two and a Half Men' was long overdue. The Ashton Kutcher comedy will indeed return for season 12 this fall, though the network finally confirmed that one of Chuck Lorre's flagship vehicles will come to a merciful end with a series finale thereafter.
Normally we'd consider CBS' long-running 'Two and a Half Men' out of our wheelhouse, particularly given how unrecognizable the series has become from its original inception, but the latest casting coup is too retro to ignore. Ashton Kutcher will reunite with his 'That '70s Show' co-star (and now fiancee) Mila Kunis for an arc later on this season, but what does it mean for the show?
In what could be the strangest modern development in the comic-book universe, a poster has been revealed that hints at a 'Wonder Twins' movie starring two veterans of 'That '70s Show,' Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. There are a couple options for what this could mean, but it's more than likely we're being Justin Biebered.
Earlier today, we saw a surprising article that detailed the current state of viewers for Sunday night cable series, some of which hardly seemed like they could be true. And yet, for as critically adored as series like 'Breaking Bad' may be, it just isn't where the big bucks are. A new list of TV's most paid stars that came out today will equally shock you, particularly when your salary is less than that of a monkey. Enjoy!
Hollywood has a history of similar, if not identical projects going head-to-head. A Kurt Russell-starring Wyatt Earp film faced off with a Kevin Coster-starring version in the early '90s. Oliver Stone's Alexander the Great movie killed Baz Luhrmann's. Outside of the biopic realm, Pixar's 'Finding Nemo' and DreamWorks' 'Shark Tale' were released in suspiciously close proximity. The trend continues this year, with two Snow White films hitting theaters and two Steve Jobs biopics entering production. One of the Steve Jobs movies recently hired Aaron Sorkin to pen the script. The other stars Ashton Kutcher will go before the cameras in June and already has an official site.
What year is this? If Ashton Kutcher returns to hosting duties for MTV's hit prank show 'Punk'd,' does that mean 'The Matrix' sequels have come out? Did President Gore implement his global warming solutions? Are we still waiting for Guns 'N' Roses to release their masterpiece "Chinese Democracy?" Well, if MTV ever takes a break from showing wall-to-wall music videos, we've got good news for Ashton Kutcher fans!
