Jon is so diplomatic about this it’s scary. He’s jazzed about having Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen on Two And A half Men, and in the same breathe says he’s grateful for Charlie.
“Ashton is an extraordinarily talented guy, and his presence will be an asset to our show. We are old friends from our male modeling days, and we’re both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty. I’m jazzed about the news this morning that Two and a Half Men is coming back! For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited. I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons. I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done together, and I will miss him. But I’m also looking forward to this new beginning.”
That’s what I call covering your bases.
