Charlie Sheen is planning to retire from acting. He wants to live a happy life, filled with soccer games and amusement parks and extremely forgiving ex-wives. But before he gets to live that happy life, he has to pull just one last job. It’s kind of like he’s the protagonist of his very own Michael Mann movie, except in this case the “last job” is not an existential bank robbery — it’s the production of Sheen’s new FX sitcom Anger Management, which is based on a movie or based on Sheen’s life or based on something something something boobs [LAUGH TRACK].

Last fall, America’s hearts and minds were captured by a new television character — a dapper, dark-haired gent who looked good without a shirt and went by the name of Schmidt.
That character…was not Walden Schmidt, the dotcom billionaire Ashton Kutcher now plays on Two and a Half Men. Though the former That ’70s Show star did make headlines throughout the 2011-2012 TV season, they generally had more to do with his personal life or endorsements gone wrong than his performance on CBS’ venerable sitcom. That’s not to say Kutcher is necessarily doing a bad job; our own Ken Tucker praised the actor in his review of Men‘s Season 9 premiere, saying that his poker face seemed positively Sheenian. (Charlie Sheen, of course, famously made a different assessment of his replacement.)
So why haven’t critics and audiences been buzzing about CBS’s Schmidt? READ FULL STORY
The Internet continues to grow increasingly inhospitable to Ashton Kutcher. After drumming up controversy over tweets about Joe Paterno last November and the cryptic crumbling of his marriage as seen through the same social site, now the Two and a Half Men star has created a ruckus over a character he plays in a new viral ad for Popchips. Kutcher donned brownface to play Raj, an Indian Bollywood producer. After numerous complaints about the stunt, the company has taken down the ad. Check out the ad and Popchips’ statement below.

Regardless of what the public thinks, Ashton Kutcher has a stamp of approval to portray late Apple founder Steve Jobs from at least one inside source. According to TMZ, Steve Wozniak, Jobs’ partner in founding the computer dynasty, is A-OK with the casting news.
“The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now,” said Wozniak, “but I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I’m glad that he’s on board. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject.”
The indie biopic, from Swing Vote director Joshua Michael Stern, goes simply by the name Jobs and will reportedly follow the tech impresario’s transition “from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple.” It’s set to begin filming next month. READ FULL STORY
You knew it was only a matter of time. Charlie Sheen finally stopped holding his tongue on the issue of his former sitcom Two and a Half Men. He called into TMZ Live yesterday and said bluntly, “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending they’re not completely adrift.”
Moments later, Sheen clarified that he wasn’t personally attacking Kutcher: “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.” Admitting he had been watching the show, he added, “It’s kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking good care of it.” Check out more of Sheen’s cutting remarks against the writers in the clip after the jump.

We’ve got a first look from an upcoming episode of Two and a Half Men episode airing Monday, Feb. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.

But you might think they’re “hottttttt.” Who knows what you like? READ FULL STORY
If you always sort of suspected that Ashton Kutcher must have been raised by gorillas (how else would you explain his current hair, tweeting habits, or Killers?) then watching last night’s episode of Two and a Half Men would have felt immensely satisfying. But how was it for fans of the show who discovered, alongside Kutcher’s character Walden, that he was brought up with a gorilla (named… Magilla) until he was four-years-old? READ FULL STORY
