Chuck Lorre envisions 'Two and a Half Men' reboot without Charlie Sheen
With CBS having to pull the trigger on what to do with Two and a Half Men as early as next month, the Hollywood Reporter says Jon Cryer may be getting his due. They say series co-creator Chuck Lorre is talking about rebooting the sitcom with Cryer as the lead. We give that show about 10 episodes.
THR writes Lorre has told Cryer the project "would involve a significant role for him and the introduction of a new, yet-to-be-cast character." Whether that new person is another dysfunctional family member like Charlie Sheen or more of a roommate-type deal with several actors coming in and out of the series is still up in the air.
What we don't know is who that actor will be (although word is Lorre absolutely refuses to bring back Sheen). Warner Bros. flacks have shot down Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget, but we're still hoping for John Stamos. We'll know more of what's happening to the show when CBS presents its upfronts in May, when they'll likely reveal the show is returning for a ninth season for sure. Time for Alan and Jake to move to the Big Apple!
