The new season of “Two and a Half Men” doesn’t air until September 19th, and originally Chuck Lorre wasn’t giving out any details of Ashton Kutcher’s role…until now.

Everyone involved with the show, including the audience had to sign nondisclosure agreements. So some details are hard to come by. But here is what Jon Cryer has revealed in an interview with “Entertainment Weekly.”

  • Ashton’s character will be a “brokenhearted billionaire” named Walden Schmidt. He won’t be a playboy like Charlie Harper

“I can only say my character [Alan] ends up being the more romantically experienced one of the two of them.  So Alan becomes sort of a mentor character to Ashton’s character. And as bad as an idea as that sounds, it’s just as bad on the show . . . I’m a terrible mentor.  And that’s where a lot of the fun of the show comes from.”

Jon didn’t reveal any information on the death of Charlie Harper, but he does say,

“The history of the show does not go away at all.  [The death] will be dealt with all through the first season. It’s not, ‘Oh, that character’s gone, let’s forget completely about him.’  There will be ramifications all through the season.  We’re not taking this into a new universe where the first show didn’t exist.”

What about Ashtons trailer? You hear how rockstar it is? Jon had this to say,

“I refer to [it] as the U.S.S. Yorktown. What’s great about it is it provides shade . . . for most of the studio lot. It’s a fun place to hang out for us and anybody on the crew.  He has an open-door policy.  He’s got almost a club upstairs . . . he pipes music out before and after the shows and everybody hangs out.  It creates a great vibe.”

Sounds like things are much smoother on set with Ashton Kutcher.

Season Premiere of “Two and a Half Men” also airs right before the Charlie Sheen Roast on Comedy Central.
