According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kutcher – aka Demi Moore’s much younger husband -- is getting a “huge payday” to join the hit sitcom.

Show creator Chuck Lorre, who’s in a lawsuit with Sheen after bouncing the star for erratic behavior, has written a storyline to introduce Kutcher to the temporarily-cancelled CBS hit.

“People are going to love it,” one source said. Another source confirmed the news saying: “Chuck’s really happy.”

The actor, who has 6.7 million followers on Twitter, posted a cryptic message on his page: “I’m starting to become convinced that people put my name in articles just to improve their SEO or hoping I’ll tweet it.”

Two and a Half Men was the No. 1 comedy on television until Sheen’s drug and alcohol abuse, and weird behavior, torpedoed the season.

Sheen has been squawking about trying to get his job back but seems to have fallen a little short.

A spokesman for the sitcom’s production company, Warner Bros., told RadarOnline he wouldn’t comment on a story he called “speculation.” A rep for CBS had no comment.
