Will Charlie Harper be laid to rest on the season premiere of Two and a Half Men? At her appearance at today Television Critics’ Association summer press tour panel, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler would not say.
But she did finally divulge a few details regarding Ashton Kutcher's role on the series. To wit:
He will be named “Walden Schmidt, and he is an Internet billionaire with a broken heart."
Tassler also confirmed that the September 19 premiere “will be a two-parter [airing] over two weeks."
This does go along with the rumor linked to in the opening sentence: Charlie Sheen's Harper will be dead, there will be a funeral and a subsequent craze of potential home buyers that will ultimately lead to Kutcher's Schmidt moving in.
