It used to be crazy that Ashton Kutcher had enough time in his schedule of filming Nikon Coolpix commercials and building up his "be a man and don't make children have sex with you" campaign to take on the task of replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. But then it was okay and seemed plausible, because we were kind of like, "well what else is he going to do with that goofy smile other than tell that $300,000-an episode earning Angus T. Jones that all the cool people are named after cattle and explain to him that if you put a lime in some seltzer water, it kind of looks like you're drinking alcohol!?" But now, any remaining questions we may have regarding Ashton's agreement to appear on the show (you know, like WHY, and whatnot) don't really matter anymore because it has been announced that his contract is only for one year. And who hasn't ever found themselves in a situation where they just have to do something shitty for one year?
Anyway, the Wall Street Journal reports that the reason why the contract's length is so short is because CBS has only licensed the TV show for another year. However, If CBS decides to pick up the show for another season (which would air in 2012 and 2013), Warner Bros. could either extend their contract with Kutcher or end it. The WSJ claims that both CBS and Warner Bros are fingers crossing that the show will go on for two or three more seasons, meaning the show could be on the air for a grand total of eleven or twelve seasons. But that is ridiculous because that is unnecessary, and offensive to Dolly the cloned sheep who stipulated that unnecessary things should only have a lifespan of six years.
Kutcher is reportedly earning $700,00 per episode, which is a prosciutto slice of Charlie Sheen's $2 million per episode salary, but again: it's only for a year. After that, Kutcher can go back to filming commercials for a camera that is totally appealing to college freshman, which is an audience that can only afford it if they convince their parents they need a new comforter.
The former Baywatch star was set to leave Liverpool Lime Street railway station to travel to London after finishing her run in traditional festive pantomime Aladdin when an overzealous fan tried to board the same carriage.
British Transport Police officials were alerted and tried to convince the man to leave, but after the run-in turned nasty, cops were forced to use pepper spray to restrain the suspect.
Photographs of the incident show four officers carrying the suspect away from the train while a terrified Anderson looks on.
A spokesperson for British Transport Police said a 21-year-old was taken into custody "after an altercation took place in which a police officer was assaulted. The man became verbally abusive to rail staff (as) he was asked to produce a ticket. British Transport Police attend(ed) and the man became violent and assaulted an officer and was arrested. Officers were forced to use capture spray as the man resisted arrest."
A representative for the star wrote on Twitter.com, "Pamela Anderson is safe and sound on train back to the English capital - no problems with her safety due to excellent security personnel."
