(Newser) – Watch out, Charlie Sheen. It looks like Ashton Kutcher is the one who is winning these days. Two sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Kutcher is putting the finishing touches on a deal to replace Sheen as one of Two and a Half Men's men. Kutcher took to—where else—Twitter late last night and hinted at the deal, tweeting, "What's the square root of 6.25?" No need to break out your calculator: It's 2.5.

No official confirmation yet from CBS, Warner Bros, or Kutcher's people, but the sources say all that's left to do is sign on the dotted line. No word on what he'll be paid, either, though one source called it a "huge payday." The Hollywood Reporter notes that the deal came together quickly after Hugh Grant decided to pass. Chuck Lorre has reportedly already penned the storyline that will introduce Kutcher. “It’s really funny,” says one source. “People are going to love it.”
