Kutcher, Cryer, Jones returning to 'Two And a Half Men'
It's all but a done deal that Two And a Half Men's three stars will be back for a 10th season, after they've come within an eyelash of agreeing to return to the show at their current salaries, plus a tidy bonus for each. The good news: creator Chuck Lorre's been saying he wants next season to be the show's last -- although nothing is set in stone yet.
Ashton Kutcher, who makes about $700,000 an episode, Jon Cryer pulling in a bit less, and Angus T. Jones scoring $300,000 per, are still in negotiations, but it looks like just signing paperwork at this point, Deadline.com reports. The trio are working for one more season only, so cross your fingers they'll go out in style, like they should have when Charlie Sheen got canned.
Even more important is CBS ironing out a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. TV, which should be done by May 16, when CBS presents its next slate of shows. After Kathy Bates played Charlie's ghost this week, we're going to assume Sheen won't be making any guest apperances.
