The “manly men” theme for CBS’ hit series Two and a Half Men is one of the most recognizable TV show openings of recent memory and on Monday the show’s opening received an update, replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher for a new show preview.
The scene now features Angus T. Jones to the left (he use to be in the middle), Ashton Kutcher in the middle and Jon Cryer to the right.
Fans of the show will immediately realize that the song, while the same lyrics, has been redone to sound different thanks to a new studio band recording.
Here’s a first look at the new Two and a Half Men intro:
Jon Cryer has the goofiest smile, did you see his face at the end of the clip? If the new segment is any indication the show may be taking on a “lighter” feel than past episodes.
Here’s the original opening segment featuring Charlie Sheen as Uncle Charlie:
As a long-time fan of the show I personally can’t wait to see what Ashton Kutcher can bring to the mix, quite honestly I was growing a little tired of Uncle Charlie and his predictable escapades that failed to shock me after a few seasons.
What do you think about Ashton Kutcher taking over as the series star? Can his That 70‘s show experience bring something to the show that it was missing under Charlie Sheen or will production on Two and a Half men fall apart as quickly as Charlie Sheen’s career?
