Forget Hugh Grant. It looks like Two and a Half Men is going for a younger actor to replace Charlie Sheen.
Ashton Kutcher is finalizing a deal to star on the CBS sitcom, taking the place of Sheen after he was fired earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Jeff Bridges returned to host Saturday Night Live, noting it was the first time since 1983. Bridges, who received a SAG nomination for his performance in the latest Coen brothers movie, True Grit, used the monologue to poke fun at his role in an earlier Coen brothers film: The Dude, from The Big Lebowski.
Though Bridges denied any similarities, even the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street joined him on stage and called him The Dude. Bridges and the Cookie Monster — who had...

Dax Shepard may be best known for playing pranks on the rich and famous on Punk'd, but don't call the 35-year-old comic, or his latest character, a slacker. "For the record...
You could get whiplash trying to keep track of shows comings and goings during a network mid-season as chaotic and badly managed as this one is turning out to be. Some thoughts about the latest news, much of which surfaced in the trades and some of which has yet to be confirmed by the networks:First, the no-brainer: 7th Heaven is officially being laid to rest. Again. The family-friendly drama, which was brought back from cancellation a year ago when the new CW decided it needed to launch with as many familiar franchises as possible, is now gearing up to say goodbye to the Camdens once more, when the 11th season wraps May 13. This was hardly unexpected. The show went decidedly under the radar when the CW moved it from Mondays to Sundays, where it was stranded amid a sea of repeats and second-runs of shows like Americas Next Top Model. It was time to go a year ago. This is just sad.Now on to this springs roster of mid-season losers. Hope you didnt get too attac...

(If your attention span is so short that you don't remember how wonderfully witty she is, read on — this interview will remind you.) She fought as long and hard as anyone could've against Tyra Banks' head-scratch
Ashton Kutcher's former Punk'd cohort, Dax Shepard, makes his big-screen acting debut in the new comedy Without a Paddle (opening Aug. 20). He plays Tom, a lovable boozer and pothead with a tendency toward dishonesty. Sounds like a piece of cake for Dax, right? Actually, the 29-year-old UCLA grad (who majored in anthropology) insists his doofy slacker role really was a stretch.
"In Paddle, I play a guy who is compensating for not having an education," Shepard explains. "I think of my character as someone who is as intelligent as Dan [Seth Green's character], but Dan had good parents and went to medical school and became a doctor, and Tom just went to jail. So he's trying to make up for the fact that he knows nothing, and feel smart by lying a lot and trying to be an expert at something."
