Walden Thoreau Schmidt is a fictional character in the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, portrayed by Ashton Kutcher. The character was introduced in the season nine premiere episode, "Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt" to replace the character of Charlie Harper after actor Charlie Sheen was fired from the series. Walden was a main character throughout the show's final four seasons (seasons 9-12). He is listed on Forbes' fictional list of the top 15 richest characters as number 11, with a wealth of approximately $1.3 billion.
For the first eight seasons of Two and a Half Men, the series' main character was Charlie Harper, portrayed by actor Charlie Sheen. In February 2011, after continued verbal attacks against series creator Chuck Lorre by Sheen, CBS announced that Two and a Half Men would suspend production for the rest of its eighth season. On March 7, CBS and Warner Bros. Television jointly announced that Sheen had been fired from Two and a Half Men, citing "moral turpitude" as a main cause of separation.
In the season nine premiere it is revealed that Charlie Harper has died in France and has left his beach house to his brother Alan. However, Alan has to put the house up for sale as he is unable to afford the mortgage payments and property tax. While Alan is speaking with Charlie's ashes and trying to decide where to spread them, Walden suddenly appears on the house's back deck, scaring Alan and causing him to drop the ashes on the living room floor. When Alan lets Walden in so he can use the telephone, Walden reveals he has just tried to commit suicide by drowning in the ocean. (Although he got out because the water was too cold.) He tells Alan that he is worth $1.3 billion, but would give it all up to reconcile with his wife Bridget, (portrayed by Judy Greer), from whom he had recently separated. Walden and Alan then proceed to bond at the local bar, where Walden tells Alan that he made his money when Microsoft purchased his website. At the end of the episode Walden tells Alan that he is going to buy the house.
When Walden first appears on the show he has long hair and a beard (resembling Jesus Christ according to Alan and Thor according to Evelyn), but in the season nine episode "A Possum on Chemo", he cuts his hair and shaves off the beard. Chuck Lorre explained this was done because "We wanted to tell a story about being in a relationship and being pressured to change..."
Walden was born on July 12 (as stated in season 11), 1978 (as stated twice in season 10). He lived primarily with his mother Robin as his father, a magician, disappeared when he was very young. He was raised for the first four years of his life with a baby Gorilla named Magilla, (who he believed to be imaginary at the time) as his mother was a primatologist. In high school he met Bridget, who he would go on to marry. After flunking 8th grade, his mother had him evaluated, and the results were that the tests were too easy for him and he was bored.
He began dating a British woman named Zoey. Because of his childlike behavior, he is great with children like Zoey's daughter Ava. Zoey is the reason Walden cut his hair and shaved, as she wasn't fond of "the Jennifer Aniston hairdo"; this proved difficult for Walden as he loved his hair and beard but did it to prove how much Zoey meant to him. In the season 10 premiere, he proposes to Zoey, but she says no, leaving him confused. When he goes to confront her about it, she tells him that there is another man, which causes him to become depressed. Alan and Lyndsey try to set up some dates for Walden with some of Lyndsey's friends, but none of them go well.Later at Pavlovs bar, he meets Rose, who has been spying on Walden since he arrived at the house. When he tells Alan whom he bumped into, Alan warns Walden, but Walden interrupts and tells him she explained everything about what happened with Charlie and that when you're in love, it makes you do crazy things; however Alan knows she is lying.
Walden first met Bridget in high school, where they fell in love and eventually got married. She met Walden when he wasn't a billionaire so her intentions were noble as she claims when talking to his girlfriend Zoey who met him when he was rich. She has a very good relationship with Walden's mother Robyn, which is proven when they team up to remove Walden as president of his company. She kicks him out of the house prior to the beginning of season 9, because he was too immature and relied on her more as a mother than a wife, which leaves him devastated, and causes him to attempt suicide. She has tried to reunite with Walden, but he began dating a woman named Zoey, so she began to get jealous and spy on him, where she meets a woman called Rose who agrees to take her under her wing as a trainee stalker. She began dating his friend Billy Stanhope.
In the tenth season, Walden comes to the conclusion that getting back together with Bridget would be a bad idea; in the episode "Throgwarten Middle School Mysteries," Walden fantasizes about getting back with Bridget, with the end result being her removing his testicles and putting them in a small chest, calling them hers. He then realizes (after imagining Alan lecturing him) that Bridget's controlling behavior was the reason that their relationship first failed.
Zoey Hyde-Tottingham-Pierce is an English woman who began dating Walden after they met in a supermarket. She has a young daughter, Ava, who adores Walden. She, like many, does not like Alan and believes him to be taking advantage of Walden's good nature. She cares a great deal for Walden but can see his weaknesses. After refusing to say "I Love You" to Walden, (because she believes if she says it something will go wrong in the relationship) she finally does, making both of them happy. She sides with Walden when his mother and ex-wife try to take his company from him, to which they win, but is disappointed when he renames the company Walden Loves Alan Enterprises instead of Walden loves Zoey Enterprises. In season 10 Walden proposes to her but she turns him down because there is another man. He begins cutting out pictures of her and sticking them all over his bathroom walls and calls it "the Zoey room". When Ava invites him to her birthday party he gets her a huge dog, which annoys Zoey. The dog becomes a pain for her, but when she tries to return the dog to Walden she finds out that the dog has eaten his phone. They meet again in a restaurant where she is seeing another man, which makes Walden and Zoey insecure about seeing each other and so they leave.
Kate met Walden at Target, where he introduced himself as Sam Wilson, dressed in Alan's clothes and looking in the store as he was pretending to be poor to find someone who didn't just want him because of his money. "Sam" and Kate hit it off and begin to date. When she sees where Walden lives, he pretends Alan is his rich landlord, she takes a dislike to Alan and so asks "Sam" to move in with her. She asks him to find a job, so he goes out selling Christmas trees. For Christmas he gets her a sewing machine, even though Sam Wilson could never afford it, but Walden Schmidt could, she thanks him and says that there should be no lies. She cares for Sam in a great way and tries to be romantic, hanging a piece of broccoli as she didn't have any mistletoe. Walden donated $100,000 to Kate to start up a fashion design business but made her think Alan did it, though Alan tried to pull the stunt of only donating half of it and keeping the other half for himself. Kate then went to New York City to prepare a fashion show for her outfits. Weeks later, Sam Wilson came to New York to see Kate and finally revealed to her that his real name is Walden Schmidt and that he's really a billionaire. Kate was upset with him at first because he lied to her but forgave him shortly after realizing that he was really the one who donated that money, not Alan. He told her that they could talk about it when they get back to L.A. but she said that because of what he's done for her, she might now have a future in NYC. Walden realized that he really didn't think things through. Kate told Walden that they'd have to see what happens but Walden declared that he loved her. Kate said that it was Sam Wilson she loved but she wasn't sure about Walden Schmidt and told him that she needed time to process this big new information. Weeks later, Kate returned to L.A. on business with a check for $100,000 to pay Walden back because she's gotten a new business partner and investor. Walden begged Kate for another chance and they reconciled, trying to make their relationship work but their work schedules seemed to keep them apart. Walden said that their life together was so much easier when they were poor. Kate was last seen in a limousine, leaving for China with her new business partner and investor, who turned out to be Rose; Rose's real motive for becoming Kate's business partner is to keep Kate and Walden apart. Kate, unaware of Rose's history with Walden, told Rose that she's crazy about Walden. Rose said that she's been there.
Walden and Alan pretend they are gay in season 12 which culminates in their marriage. There are many references to them being gay, such as Walden hugging Alan when he his completely naked, the two men hugging when the song I Will Always Love You plays. Other people believing they are gay e.g. a nurse at the hospital after Alan has a heart attack telling Walden to fill in the box life partner and saying "come out, come out wherever you are". A homosexual doctor at the hospital also thinks Walden is gay and says "That's why we gave up women, right buddy?" After Zoey starts complaining, the mailman thinks they are gay. Walden and Alan decided to turn gay in the season 10 premiere episode after Zoey leaves Walden. Walden squeezing Alan's butt while thinking of Zoey, and stroking his hair. Alan references the running joke when Walden wants to break up from Rose and Alan tells him to tell her that he is sick of hiding his feelings towards him (Alan). 781b155fdc
