'Two And A Half Men' Cast & Crew: Ashton Kutcher Is Nice, But He Feels Like A Step-Dad Compared To Charlie Sheen!

HollywoodLife.com’s source on the set of ‘Two and a Half Men’ says the cast and crew miss laid back Charlie Sheen and don’t think the dynamic will ever be the same with ‘strictly professional’ Ashton Kutcher.

Although Charlie Sheen may have driven his bosses nuts with his outlandish antics, his Two and a Half Men cast and crew had nothing but love and respect for him. The 46-year-old actor always looked out for their best interests and loved to joke around with them like family — something they say Ashton Kutcher hasn’t quite mastered yet.

“Ashton is nice and he tries to do things to get us to like him more and more, but he kind of feels like a step dad,” the insider tells us. “He might be the best thing for the family, but everyone misses their ‘original dad,’ Charlie.”

The source explains, “With Charlie, we knew we could push his buttons and joke around about his personal life all the time. Ashton is all business and doesn’t like to joke around with the guys about his life. It’s off limits.”

Additionally, the cast and crew typically sided with Charlie when he went up against their boss, Chuck Lorre. However, now Ashton works closely with Chuck, which means they have to watch what they say.

“Chuck isn’t the easiest guy to work with and Charlie could handle him in a way where the crew wouldn’t get the brunt of it,” our source dishes. “But Ashton and Chuck are super friendly with each other, so crossing Ashton is like crossing Chuck. People are walking on egg shells to say and do the ‘right’ thing.”

All that said, at the end of the day, our insider assures us the entire cast and crew of the hit CBS show are just stoked to have a job and don’t want to seem ungrateful.

My husband and I LOVED Two and a Half Men….but not anymore. I can’t believe Charlie was fired for behavior that Chuck Lorre and CBS capitalized on as the show was based on Charlie’s lifestyle. Ashton Kutcher does not have the charm that comes naturally to Charlie Sheen. This is especially evident when watching the new episodes and the strained and forced energy between the original cast and Ashton Kutcher. If you ask me Chuck Lorre should have sucked it up bringing the show to the devoted watchers they deserved. If they think parading skinny underdeveloped Ashton Kutcher around without clothes on will keep the show alive they are wrong…it is RERUNS on FOX for us!

Totally agree with Marianne!!!! I also think they shouldn’t of kept the show going. Charlie Sheen was amazing, Ashton was on that 70s show but this character he is playing is a joke to the whole show. Allan, Jake an Burta, are the only people keeping the show going.

Unfortunately I have to agree, I was happy that they brought Ashton in, only because it meant that the show would not be canceled, the show was brilliantly written and the cast with
Charlie makes you want more each week, and the show with Ashton leaves you wondering and hoping that they can come up with something next week that makes Ashton’s character relavent, or interesting, while the rest of the cast is still
compelling us to watch, and hope that they write Charlie back
and give us all what we so vehemently want, Ashton was awesome in ‘That 70’s Show’ but Charlie has a charisma and that ‘It Factor’ that can’t be substituted for in this mix.
