Ashton Kutcher Compares Two and a Half Men Role to Winning the Lottery

Ashton Kutcher and co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus Jones walked on stage singing the theme song of Two and a Half Men as Kutcher made his first public appearance since the announcement he was joining the cast.

"It's awesome to be here! Unbelievable to be here! I honestly could not be more excited. For some reason they're letting us talk, which is kind of cool!" he said.

"Unwise! Unwise!" joked Cryer.

He charmed the crowd at Carnegie Hall in New York City, at a CBS event showcasing the new fall season  

"I've never probably in my 13 years in show business received more e-mails and phone calls congratulating me for this job. I mean, you'd think I'd won the lottery or something…which I kind of did!" Kutcher said.

Cryer and Jones already love their new cast mate.

"I'm incredibly happy they're bringing Ashton to the show, but the question that I have to ask is, 'Did you have to get a tall guy?' " Cryer quipped.

Backstage at the event, Kutcher tweeted a photo of the threesome pretending to be angry, joking, "First cast argument 2.5 men."

Production on Two and a Half Men with Ashton Kutcher joining the cast starts later this summer.
