“I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons,” his statement continued. “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.

“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,” Cryer concluded, making a reference to Kutcher’s own model past.
