Much ado has been made over Ashton Kutcher taking over the Charlie Sheen role in “Two and a Half Men” but it is the “Real Men” effort that appears to drive Ashton and wife Demi Moore, according to Ashton’s twitter account. The power couple have been on a drive to end human trafficking in America and around the world for some time, with Gerard Butler being the latest to join Ashton and Demi’s “Real Men” end child sexual slavery effort according to a recent Kutcher tweet.
“Real Men” seems a cause at odds with the character portrayed by Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men” when you consider that “Real Men” is a move to liberate women from the shackles placed on them by disreputable men, while “Two and a Half Men” celebrates the man known to consider women more of a conquest than a permanent and equal partner.
Sex factors into both “Men” efforts, and it will be interesting to see how Kutcher maintains his “Real Men” supporters and credibility in fighting sexual slavery while simultaneously celebrating the man-about-town role on “Two and a Half Men”.
Will Kutcher temper down the Sheen role by reducing the female-as-my-slave mentality? Sheen’s godess talk after his firing has only fueled the well known man-on-the-make image he perfected in his 2.5 role. So if Ashton does go in that direction it will be an uphill climb. Couple that with the fact that many of the men who watched 2.5 did so for the obvious disparity between the sexes and you have a hard job ahead of the “Punk’d” star.
But don’t underestimate Kutcher, who has gone from one million twitter followers to 6.5 million since his mano e mano bout with CNN — who lost to him, by the way.
Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore’s efforts on behalf of “Real Men” should see a boost of support rather than a decrease now that Kutcher is taking on 2.5.
Kutcher and wife Demi Moore have attempted to present a partnership marriage, replete with philanthropic works and family outings throughout their relationship. And according to the Christian Science Monitor, Kutcher and Moore have ponied up millions for worthwhile causes, using their celebrity to make a positive impact in the lives of others. So it is most likely that the two will remain joined at the hip in this new endeavor, just increasing exposure for the important work of ending sexual slavery.
And if tweets are any indication, they will even have Charlie Sheen backing them as they do it.
“@Charlie Sheen Thank man. Always been a fan, always will be! BTW you were ‘born big,'” Kutcher tweeted to Sheen after Charlie told TMZ that Kutcher was a “sweetheart” and a “brilliant comedic performer.”
CBS couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate replacement for Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men” than Ashton Kutcher under the circumstances. Kutcher’s got the comedic ability to pull off replacing Sheen, the personality to woo Sheen’s fans (and Sheen), as well as the right woman on the side to help him do it all. It looks like CBS picked a winner.
