HOLLYWOOD HOOKUP (FOX44) -- Kutcher's salary - it's not quite Charlie Sheen money, but it looks like Ashton Kutcher will make out handsomely for his new TV gig. According to the Wall Street Journal, Kutcher will fetch around three-quarters of a million dollars per episode of "Two And A Half Men"
Sheen was making more than double that.
Kutcher's deal is only for one year and he could be replaced or just walk away after that.

Fuller says: "It's actually very awkward for me, and so excuse my fumbled words. but one of the things that struck me when I woke up and when I walked into the hotel earlier, was the most special thing about today. While the star is fantastic and I’m proud about that, the most special thing by a million miles for me today is to see all my friends, my family, my beautiful baby girl, who's six months old, my adorable wife, and I know it's really corny to say those things but that's actually the absolute truth.”
Billboard Magazine calls Fuller the most successful British manager of all time.
