When Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) was introduced to “Two and a Half Men,” he was a broken and beaten man who had just attempted suicide. With all that was going on in Schmidt’s life, he looked the part – long, unkempt hair and a scraggly beard. But as Schmidt slowly gets his life in order, it’s time for a new style.
On Monday (Jan. 16) episode of the hit comedy, Schmidt decides to cut off the locks and shave the beard in an effort to please his new girlfriend Zoey (Sophie Winkleman). So we’re introduced to a clean-cut version of the Internet billionaire, but what will Zoey think of this? And should Bridget (Judy Greer) make another return, how will she react?
Kutcher has his own opinion on the new style. At the Television Critics Association Winter press tour, the actor says, “I’m sure there will be people who, now that I’ve cut my hair and shaved my beard, they’ll want me to have long hair and a beard. And there were people that when I had long hair and a beard wanted me to be shaven, have a hair cut.” He adds, now when he sees pictures with his long hair and beard, he thinks “it’s pretty funny.”
What do you think of Kutcher’s new look?
