Goodbye Charlie, hello Ashton! Mr Kutcher strips off in racy new billboard for Two And A Half Men


Racy: A new Two And A Half Men billboard, featuring Charlie Sheen's predecessor Ashton Kutcher, was erected at the Warner Bros studios in California today

His smiling face and confident suit-clad stroll was a staple image on the walls of the Warner Bros studios for years.

But the image of former Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen was made a mere memory today, as a billboard featuring his successor Ashton Kutcher was erected on the famous Burbank lot.

And the new sign for the hit sitcom is likely to draw much more attention, especially due to Kutcher's scantily clad appearance.

Out with the old: The advertisement eradicated remnants of Charlie, seen here in an old poster for the show earlier this year

The 33-year-old is seen on the new giant advertisement for the show, naked, posing alongside co-stars Angus T. Jones and Jon Cryer, with a white placard merely covering their private parts.

The words 'All Will Be revealed' and this year's 19 September air date of the rebooted show are emblazoned across the front.

Today's new billboard replaced a generic version which was put in place after Charlie's was taken down last month.

Sign of the times: The new billboard spells a fresh new start for the series

The advert comes ahead of the hotly anticipated new series, with Kutcher in the lead role following Charlie's sacking, earlier this year.

In May, Kutcher expressed his delight over being part of the highly coveted series.

'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,' Kutcher told Us Magazine.

He continued: 'You'd almost think I won the lottery or something, which I kind of did.

'I've got the best job in showbusiness, and I am ecstatic about that.'

The No Strings Attached star will earn around $1m per episode for the top-rated comedy.

Kutcher officially replaced Charlie on the hit show back in May.

He said in a statement of his hiring:'I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers' homes.

'I can't replace Charlie Sheen, but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!'

New gig: Charlie is gearing up to film a new sitcom

Charlie announced yesterday that he will play a 'mild-mannered, non-confrontational man' ordered to go to anger management sessions in his next TV project.

It will be his first acting role since his infamous firing.

The role is based on the character made famous by Jack Nicholson in the original film, which also starred Adam Sandler.
