Charlie Sheen Congratulates Ashton Kutcher via Twitter

Charlie Sheen is backing off his rather rude first reaction to Ashton Kutcher taking his place on Two and a Half Men.

Now, Sheen is extending his good wishes to Kutcher, tweeting, "Winning Congrats to the cast and crew […] My best to [Ashton Kutcher] !! The show must go on... You got the right guy! C"

Kutcher responded with a tweet: "Thanks man. Always been a fan, always will be!"

And we're learning more about how Kutcher got the part. It turns out Two and a Half Men's Angus Jones, who plays Charlie Sheen's nephew, suggested the casting of Kutcher.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the 17-year-old Jones has long been a Twitter and e-mail pal of Kutcher's and thought he'd be perfect to fill Sheen's shoes.

INSIDE EDITION caught up with Kutcher's former That '70s Show co-star Wilmer Valderrama, who said he was "super happy" for his good friend.
