Hugh Grant Turns Down Huge Payday To Replace Charlie Sheen On 'Two And A Half Men' — $25 Million!

Charlie is definitely done on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ but it seems producers have fallen short in luring their first big name replacement!

Ahhh, the life of an actor. No longer the big screen leading man he used to be, Hugh Grant was just offered a pretty decent salary to become the new lead on CBS’ Two and a Half Men — $25 million! Deadline reports, “Hugh Grant was deep into final negotiations to replace Charlie Sheen as the lead on Two And A Half Men until he pulled out last night at the last minute due to creative differences. Insiders tell me he’d been offered more than $1 million an episode, which is the sort of $25M-a-year payday.” That’s a nice chunk of change!

Hugh currently has no films on the horizon and would be free to film the new season of the hit show it would seem. This is a serious blow to producer Chuck Lorre, who has been adamant about only continuing the show if he can get an A-list replacement for Charlie. Has anyone given Heather Locklear a call yet?

Would you have watched the show with Hugh?
