Ashton Kutcher on Walden Schmidt, His Character on 'Two and a Half Men'
We're at Techcrunch Disrupt in San Francisco where some 30 startups from around the world are launching, execs, entrepreneurs and VCs are staking positions in the future of media and technology and Ashton Kutcher is introducing Walden Schmidt, his character debuting Monday on CBS' "Two and a Half Men."
Kutcher primarily discussed his focus as an investor in dozens of tech companies in a 20 minute interview with Mike Arrington, Techcrunch founder and former editor. But the discussion started with hints of what we can expect when post-Charlie Sheen "Two and a Half Men" returns with Kutcher as Walden Schmidt, a technology entrepreneur turned venture capitalist. The show is "just as offensive as it ever was," said Kutcher.
