(Newser) – Charlie Sheen's first public response to the hiring of Ashton Kutcher for Two and a Half Men is ... actually pretty tame by violent-torpedo-of-truth standards. "Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer," Sheen tells TMZ, before adding, "Oh, wait, so am I." He doesn't think the Warner Bros show will fly, however, predicting that a key part of the fan base won't return. "Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB."

Sheen also warns Kutcher about show creator Chuck Lorre: "Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there." Click for more or to read about Kutcher's hefty (but not quite Sheen-level) salary.
