Two and a Half Men Casting Rumor: John Stamos to Replace Charlie Sheen?

by at . Comments

As the Charlie Sheen legal war against Two and a Half Men rages on - the actor has reportedly hired an attorney to fight for his full season pay - rumblings of the sitcom returning next year with a new lead are growing louder.

And that lead has been identified as John Stamos.

According to E! News, CBS President Les Moonves spoke with Stamos on Saturday afternoon about joining Two and a Half Men. Says a source:

"They were at the bar talking and Les asked John if he'd be interested in replacing Charlie. It wouldn't be to play Charlie's character but they talked more about introducing a new character."

Sheen/Stamos

About 24 hours prior to this alleged meeting, the recurring Glee star Tweeted: "Contrary to the rumors, I am not replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. however, Martin Sheen has asked me to be his son."

What do you think? Should the show go on without Sheen? Should Stamos take over?

    If John Stamos Replace Charlie Sheen, CBS might lose the fans, the viewers and Two and a Half Men show or I should say we viewers and fans might lose the show

    Drugs are abundant on most any filming set.Its tolerated as long as the actor or actress doesnt do anything to screw up the filming process. Just look the other way, thats Hollywood!

    I think they need to let the show go. I feel bad for Jon Cryer and the kid. too bad they can`t make a spin off and Allan get married and move in with is wife. maybe John Stamos can be a friend or something

    @Shari Fann: Stamos would be playing a different character, not taking over as Charlie Harper.

    I don't think John Stamos can fill the shoes. He's not sarcastic enough. Has anyone looked at Emilio Estevez? If anyone would know how to play Charlie, it would be his brother.

    I well watch the show like 2-3 episodes and from there see, but i just dont see it, i mean the show is about family. and a new someone well i just dont see it

    I will watch the show either way. Watching it with Charlie Sheen is watching a slow motion train wreck, but that is fascinating, in a way. Sick, but fascinating. John Stamos is a charmer, with no discernible downside. When he was on ER, he did an excellent job of acting. He is far more talented than I ever gave him credit for being back in his Full House days, and I miss seeing him on television. (He has probably been on shows since ER; I did not see them. Two and A Half Men, I watch.)

    Let it die. I really liked it, but I think it's over. No offense to John Stamos, but I doubt the show could survive without Charlie.
