Sources are saying that Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre is putting a plan into motion to bring Two and a Half Men back with a focus on Jon Cryer’s character and the introduction of a new character.
After being fired from Two and a Half Men in March, Charlie Sheen filed a $100 million lawsuit against Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Since then, he has expressed his desire to rejoin the show, but Lorre is reportedly not interested in entertaining the idea.
Instead, insiders say Lorre wants to continue the show without Sheen, making Cryer’s character the main focus and bringing in a new character, that would carry a role similar to Sheen’s character. Perhaps Sheen can use the time off to consider mental health treatment centers for his infamous growing ego. Rumored candidates for this new character are Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget.
It is said that no deals with potential Sheen replacement actors have been made, and no offers have even been put on the table.
A decision will reportedly be made about the future of Two and a Half Men before May 18.
One well-connected source tells TMZ, “There really is a good chance the show won’t come back.”
