Ashton Kutcher will be replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, reports the New York Post.

CBS executives have also considered big Hollywood names like Woody Harrelson, Rob Lowe, John Stamos and Jeremy Piven for the lead role, looking for “an exciting actor who’d never done TV before,” an insider told Deadline Wednesday.

Les Moonves, CBS President, reportedly told the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, to “swing high” in finding a replacement for Sheen — to attract the same kind of buzz created by the troubled star’s departure, according to the source.

Sheen is suing CBS for $100 million for wrongful termination.
