Ashton: 'Two and a Half Men' role is like lottery win

Thursday May 19, 2011

New addition to the Two and a Half Men cast Ashton Kutcher says replacing Charlie Sheen in the show feels like winning the lottery.

"I've never probably in my 13 years in show business received more phone calls and e-mails from people congratulating me on this job," said the actor.

"You'd almost think I won the lottery or something, which I kind of did". Delighted Ashton was speaking at an event in New York where he was officially unveiled as a cast member.

The star – pictured with his new cast mates Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones – continued: "I've got the best job in show business, and I am ecstatic about that."
