Two and a Half Men Update: Replacement Options, Return Odds

by at . Comments

We have an update on Two and a Half Men.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, no matter what Charlie Sheen blabs about on his tour, there is NO chance he comes back to the show.

Sources tell the publication that creator Chuck Lorre has shared a plan with associates that would take his show in a new creative direction. Details are limited, but it would likely beef up the role of Jon Cryer.

Still, a new actor would be brought in to fill a new role and insiders say possibilities include Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget.

What are the odds we never see Two and a Half Men on the air again?

"There really is a good chance the show won't come back," a network source tells TMZ.

    ASHTON KUTCHER AND THEIR WHOLE STORY LINE IS VERY BORING. I WOULD RECOMMEND CHANGING ASHTON FOR GEORGE (SEINFELD) I THINK IT WOULD BE VERY FUNNY, BOTH GEORGE AND JON CRYER (fantastic actor!)BEING ON THE NERDY SIDE. GET LYNDSAY AND THE OTHER ENGLISH ACTOR OFF. IT IS SO BORING, NOTHING INTERESTING. IT IS FUNNIER IF JON HAS NO MATE. BERTA WOULD BE BEST BEING HER OLD SELF. THE SET WAS BETTER THE OTHER WAY IT WAS. ALL IN ALL EVEN AFTER ALL THIS, THE BEST CHOICE WOULD BE TO BRING CHARIE BACK, THIS IS A FANTASTIC SHOW BUT IT IS GOING DOWN HILL, I ONLY WATCH THE OLD RE-RUNS. NOT INTERESTED IN THE NEW VERSION AT ALL AND I AM SURE MANY SHARE MY OPINION. GET GEORGE IN AND THEN YOU WILL SEE THE RATINGS RISE. IF GEORGE IS NEUROTIC AND ALSO JON, IT WILL BE VERY FUNNY BELIEVE ME, I KNOW TALENT WHEN I SEE IT.

    I will not watch another episode of 2 and half men if charlie sheen is not involved. He make the show along with the other cast members. They should get rid of chuck lorre. He always has to have his blurbs at the end of the credits which make absolutely no sense. I can't believe they would put him above the actor who makes the series work. CBS and WB be combined assholes and get rid of the man who really make the show money. NO Charlie no chance of watching it.

    Just cancel the show. Replacing Charlie would be a huge mistake. Replacing anyone on any show is just completely stupid. Kind of like all the Batman movies and now Spiderman movies. Don't fix something that isn't broken! What broke was chuck's ego. Burn baby burn! He'll never have another hit like Two and a Half Men again. I bet the millions of dollars in my savings account(s) that he wont. Charlie may be crazy, but that is what America buys into! Also, I bet if Jon Cryer gets a bigger role the show will be canceled before the season finale. He is sooo annoying and boring, that I always hated to watch the episodes that he was mostly in! If he ever gets work again, he owes it to Charlie Sheen! Not chuck or himself. chuck you are not winning, you are losing! Get use to it! lol!

    Bob Saget?? Are you serious?? Oh c'mon, now we're just getting desperate here. If they pick Bob Saget they might as well save themselves money because everyone will just laugh, and it won't be WITH the show, it will be AT the show.

    Dave Coulier would be a great replacement for Charlie Sheen. To bad Charlie is all about Charlie.

    If they could bring Jeremy Pivet, then they'll have a HUGE HIT!!!
