Russ Says: The Perfect Replacement For Charlie Sheen Is Charlie Sheen…Duh!

Thu, March 10, 2011 7:00am EDT by 23 Comments

Rumors have been swirling that Rob Lowe, John Stamos or some other troll will be taking over Charlie’s role on Two & A Half Men, I don’t think there’s any need to replace him in the first place!

Charlie Sheen has been fired from Two & A Half Men, but unlike American Idol changing judges successfully, replacing Charlie will be the biggest mistake of all time! Though Charlie said in one of his latest radio interviews he’d love to see Rob Lowe replace him, it is only because Charlie would still get paid, thanks to a well placed clause in his contract. If CBS wants the show to continue, then it’s time to make nice and finish the shows run with the people who made it into a monster hit in the first place.

Look at it this way, imagine if Jennifer Aniston got fired from Friends years ago for saying she was a “warlock,” calling her bosses “narcissistic clowns” and parading around with a machete. It would have changed the show (and Jennifer) forever. However, Friends would have never been able to replace Rachel, because (let’s be honest), Jennifer is single-handedly the biggest star who came from that show. Replacing her for ranting just wouldn’t work in the big picture.

Think about it! What if Charlie Sheen is right? Could show creator Chuck Lorre actually be a jerk? Are the people involved in the show screwing Charlie over?

Maybe the only thing to question is how Charlie Sheen is presenting his argument. We are so used to stars and celebrities lying to us, so it’s hard to trust the real life persona he has been displaying — as funny or crazy as it may seem. I, for one, will be on Team Sheen in all his business affairs. CBS is missing out on the WINNING!

I hope CBS makes the right decision and cancels the show, or rehires Charlie Sheen. He is the man for the job… bar none!

I love ”two and a half man” and I wish Charlie Sheen could back to the tv show :
I think they can replace Charlie with a new actor,but will be hard to find a actor to replace Charlie. #myopinion

Charlie Sheen has been acting on movies & TV for decades while simultaneously living a “rock star” lifestyle and has never had any complaints regarding his professionalism. The fact that the executives of 2.5 Men consistently paid him more per episode reflects that they recognize his importance to the success of the show. The writer, Lorre, has obviously borrowed from Charlie’s personal life to create story lines for the show and despite often trying to belittle him with the dialogue Lorre’s written, Charlie as admirably acts out the part professionally AND makes it hilarious. Not many actors could pull that off. The $2M an episode reflects the ratings CBS has been getting from the success Sheen brings to the show. They wouldn’t pay him that salary if it wasn’t worth it to them, nor would they give him a hefty raise if he wasn’t able to fulfill his contract. They knew what he was like when they signed on with him AND when they renewed his contract. Why didn’t they fire him when he was up for renewal if he was such a problem as they claim? Lorre does seem to be the cause of a personality clash and is ruining a good thing for the entire cast and crew. Maybe Lorre should leave? It would be easier to find a writer than replace the main character.

Charlie has been acting for decades now in movies and TV. There have never been complaints before. This Lorre character obviously does have a big ego and is jealous of Charlie’s earning power. He likely thinks that he, the writer, should be getting paid more or envies his carefree lifestyle. The other shows to Lorre’s credit are not great successes. The reason 2.5 Men is successful is due to Charlie Sheen. Lorre borrows from Charlie’s life to create the story lines and no matter how belittling he tries to make the dialogue, Charlie always manages to carry it off with a professional attitude AND makes it funny. The character Charlie IS Charlie, he can’t be replaced. If this wasn’t hollywood, this would be a classic workplace harassment case and Lorre would have to leave the show. Where are the reps. from the actors union when all this is going on? Charlie’s personal life, whether you approve or not, is his personal business as long as he does his job. Lorre’s clearly a manipulator, Charlie’s past work history should prove this fact.

2 1/2 men is the only sitcom I watch. With the economy heading on a dangerous path, job security hanging in the balance, I personally am spending more time at home relying on TV for entertainment and watching reruns of 2 1/2 Men still lifts my spirits. I am crushed that addiction has a stranglehold on yet another major talent of all time. I hope Charlie does whatever it takes to get on the right path so he can come back better/stronger than ever; not onlty for himself but his children. In the interim, there is only one person I think that could even come close as a comperable ‘fill-in’. This person’s the same age bracket, good looking, drinks regularly, smokes cigars and is funny as hell… *Ron White*(the comedian in Blue Collar Comedy with Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworth, Bill Engvall)

Charlie Sheen gets paid $2 Million dollars per episode, more than any other actor on TV. Let me ask you, is he really that worth it?

Azy: If he wasn’t worth it, do you think the executives would’ve paid him that much? Why didn’t they simply fire him when his last contract came up for negotation if he was causing so much disruption. The fact they agreed to pay him so much more substantiates what Charlie is saying… he’s keeping to his contract and bringing in the ratings they want. The problem seems to be concentrated around this writer Lorre – nobody else, just Lorre.

Jason Bateman has the talent and wit to actually improve Two and Half Men.

The producers should hire me. I would do it for a quarter of the salary, show up for work early every day, would never badmouth my bosses, and would not abuse my body and mind like a freakin dumbass.

I agree. To me, Charlie WAS the show. I Like the Mother character, Berta and Jake too. But Charlie is the main character and how do you replace Charlie Sheen and have it still delivered the same? You can’t

Hey dude, Dawn is right! Charlie’s messed up personal life doesn’t change the fact that he IS the main character of the show! (along with the guy who plays his brother)
