Charlie Sheenâs exit from the hit US sitcom Two and a Half Men is set in stone after clashes with Chuck Lorre and Warner Brothers, revelation of his drug addiction and stories of his wild lifestyle. But who (if anyone) will fill his booze-addled shoes?
Despite suggestions that Charlie may be rehired for the show, Jeremy Piven is a name that appears to be linked to the role of Charlie Harper, although Piven’s rep Stan Rosenfield told E! News: “[Neither Piven] nor anyone who reps him knows anything about this.”
Although it is unclear who will succeed Charlie Sheen, there is no doubt that the wit and vulgarity of Charlie Harper will be hard to recreate.
As well as the uncertainty surrounding the future of Two and a Half Men, there is an unpredictable outlook for Sheenâs career. With three million Twitter fans, a host of t-shirts dedicated to the star, and a new tour across the US called “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option”, the expectation and hype around the star is high.
The question is, will Charlie Sheen be able to deliver, or will it be time to go back to his âshrinkâ?, as the trailer for the last episode of Two and a Half Men amusingly highlights?
