After much speculation over who will replace troubled actor Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, it was finally announced that Ashton Kutcher will take on the role.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that the famous actor, who jumpstarted his career on the hit television show That 70s Show landed the gig to replace Sheen. The Hollywood Reporter says Kutcher cashed in on a huge payday.

Speculations were circulating all of Thursday regarding Kutcher's role on the hit television show, but it wasn't until he tweeted a smiley face emoticon that it was confirmed at approximately 9 p.m.

Then, an hour later, Kutcher tweeted What's the square root of 6.25? For those of you out there that aren't so good with math, the answer is two and a half.

Other names that were in the running, or at least rumored to replace Sheen have been Rob Lowe, Hugh Grant, John Stamos and Jerry O'Connell.

Sheen was fired from the show after he went on rants about the show's creator, Chuck Lorre.
