Kathy Bates to Guest Star on Two and a Half Men As... Charlie?!?

by at . Comments

Charlie Harper is on his way back to Two and a Half Men. Sort of. Kind of. But not really.

Close Up of Harry

CBS sources confirm that Harry's Law star Kathy Bates has signed on for one of the season's more unusual guest appearances: she will stop by the April 30 installment of this sitcom as the ghost of Charlie Sheen's late character.

Look for her to take on Charlie's spirit after Alan suffers a minor heart attack. Can't say we saw that development coming.

After taking two weeks off, meanwhile, Two and a Half Men aired a new episode last night. What did you think of it?

I agree- With the money this sitcom has made for Chuck Lorre, why hire Bates to pose as Charlie when surely Charlie could have been brought back- That is as lame as all the other episodes of this past season!!!!
The show only existed with Charlie Sheen-I can`t believe they are contemplating renewing it for another year?????? Who is watching this junk???? How can the network re-sign such a pathetic show??????? Take it off the air if Charlie Sheen does not come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I love Kathy Bates, I've seen Green Fried Tomatoes at least 7 times....she's out of this world great! Rock on Kathy....


Can't tell you what I think about it, because I stopped watching it since Charlie left. How come Allen and Kathy Bates have to assume "Charlie's" part. Why not get the real mccoy back?
