Sorry, Charlie.

Ashton Kutcher is pretty confident about his new role on Two and a Half Men. In an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the 33-year-old said he feels good about the sitcom's return -- without Charlie Sheen.

"You get out [on stage] and the audience goes crazy," the former That '70s Show star said. "I think it's gonna go through the roof. I really do. I've been laughing really hard."
