Kutcher is familiar to television audiences through his role on Fox's That 70s Show, film roles like the romantic comedy No Strings Attached and production of shows like MTV's Punk'd.

Warner cut short the show's eighth season and fired Sheen two months following his public implosion through hard partying and angry criticism of show creator Chuck Lorre.
