Ashton Kutcher making as much as $900,000 per episode on 'Two and a Half Men'




Ashton Kutcher won't be getting almost $2 million per episode to star on Two and a Half Men like Charlie Sheen, which is a shame. He'll have to make do with a mere $900,000 a week. We just don't see how he can afford to buy whatever he's wearing to replace those trucker hats.

TMZ says it has details from sources that say Kutcher is raking in between $800,000 and $900,000 per episode, plus a deal to cash in on back end profits. That's the same kind of structure Sheen had to bump up his $1.25 million per episode contract to almost $2 mil.

Once again, we can only wonder how Jon Cryer feels all about this. He makes $550,000 per show, and is arguably the anchor character now. Sure, Sheen's antics drove the show, but hapless, hopeless Alan is the reason there's even a series in the first place. Time to go on strike, Jon.
