Charlie Sheen’s character in ‘Two and a Half Men’, Charlie Harper, is set to be killed off in a car crash.
Sheen was fired from the sitcom and replaced by Ashton Kutcher after his eccentric behavior and feuds with creator Chuck Lorre, who has now decided Charlie Harper dies off screen, meaning Charlie can never return.
According to reports, Charlie’s brother Alan and nephew Jake will learn “Charlie Harper has bitten the dust” as “TV screens turn dark for just a minute or two”.
Kutcher will replace him as the lead star of the show, although playing a different character. According to Ashton, “I’ve never probably in my 13 years in show business received more phone calls and emails from people congratulating me on this job. You’d almost think I won the lottery or something, which I kind of did. I’ve got the best job in showbusiness, and I am ecstatic about that.”
While there’s no chance of him returning to ‘Two and a Half Men’, Sheen is set to sign a deal for his TV comeback this week in a completely new show created “for him”.
A source close to the negotiations said: “It’s a show created with him and for him. The deal should get signed by tomorrow, but with lawyers you never know. No later than Friday.”
