Ashton Kutcher is quickly making an impression on the set of "Two and A Half Men" as the CBS sitcom moves on without Charlie Sheen toward its September 19 premiere.
"The taping went really well," a source on set told People.com. "No one mentioned Charlie."
Following the first show, Ashton reportedly threw a party for his cast and crew at Los Angeles venue the Troubadour, Us Weekly reported on Tuesday.
Ashton's wife, Demi Moore, was reportedly at his side at the event, which occurred last Friday.
At the party, the actor was "buying drinks," a source told the mag, and his attitude is already helping him win over his workmates.
"Everybody is loving Ashton on the set," the source said. "He's really coming off like a cool low maintenance guy, and with everything that went down with Charlie everyone is breathing a sigh of relief."
In a new cover story for Details magazine, Ashton said he still hasn't met Charlie, but the actor has reached out.
"I don't know him. I've never met him in my life. But, you know, he sent me congratulations and wished me well. Via Twitter," Ashton said, likely referring to Charlie's Tweets of May 14, when he wished him well.
"#Winning Congrats to the cast and crew...CBS & WB..! My best to @aplusk !!" Sheen Tweeted at the time. "The show must go on... You got the right guy! c."
As for why he took the job, the former "That 70's Show" star said he had been mulling a move back to the small screen for some time.
"I've been flirting with going back to TV for a while. When this opportunity came up, I thought to myself, 'why not?'" he said
