Charlie Sheen is a good chunk of the way through his Anger Management contract and another 10/90 order is probably not forthcoming. With Anger Management possibly set to end over the next several months, Sheen is busy looking for other opportunities, and the actor recently spoke out to say he would love to return to Two And A Half Men during the show’s final season.
Sheen recently spoke with TV Guide about his work on the CBS comedy and how he would really like to return to send-off the series in style sometime during Season 12.
"I've reached out to them and they've reached back. We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."
Sheen left Two And A Half Men back in 2011. At the beginning of the Season 9 premiere, his womanizing character Charlie Harper was actually killed off the series, making his return to the show a logistic improbability. They’d have to bring him back in like a dream sequence or a weird supernatural scene. Strange occurrences are not typically what Two And A Half Men is about.
While Sheen seems highly open to the possibility of coming back, it seems like he is forgetting all of the crap he pulled when he was fired from the popular CBS comedy. The man went on a bender over the holidays toward the end of his run, forcing the comedy to shut down production on the series. He was later fired after taking a slew of inappropriate pot shots at Two And A Half Men creator Chuck Lorre. Then, he had a stint as a loony in the public eye before landing his Anger Management contract. Oh yeah, and he even tried to sue the studio.
It gets worse. As recently as 2012, called Two And A Half Men a “steaming pile of ass.” Roughly six months ago, Ashton Kutcher did a late night interview where he asked Sheen to lay off the mean tweets. I doubt CBS would touch Charlie Sheen with a 10-foot pole at this point.
However, what weirds me out most about this conversation is that Sheen doesn’t seem to realize this, at all. He’s better off trying to figure out what his next move will be acting-wise than to try to figure out how to literally return from the dead on Two And A Half Men. The show has moved on. Ashton Kutcher is the new Charlie Sheen, and may even be better at it than Sheen was. The comedy is going to wrap up this season in a nice little package with a bow on top that will allow the show to be syndicated for years to come. Nowhere does Sheen fit into that picture.
