Rumors are swirling that Ashton Kutcher may be offered a hefty $700,000 per-episode contract extension to stay with "Two and a Half Men." The news broke earlier this week via the U.K.'s OK! Magazine, who says the actor is currently in negotiations with CBS.
Kutcher stepped in for Charlie Sheen on the show after Sheen's highly publicized beef with creator Chuck Lorre. They also report that co-star Jon Cryer will get the same deal and Angus T. Jones will take in $300,000.
The show's ratings have dropped since Kutcher signed on, but that hasn't stopped Nina Tassler, the Entertainment President at CBS from praising Ashton. She has previously called him "an extraordinarily professional, talented, funny, gifted actor who comes with a tremendous amount of commitment and enthusiasm."
