Charlie Sheen to be killed off

2011-06-28 11:40
Los Angeles - Charlie Harper, Charlie Sheen's character in Two and a Half Men, will die off-screen.

The troubled actor was fired from the sitcom and replaced by Ashton Kutcher after his eccentric behaviour and constant feuds with creator Chuck Lorre.

Lorre has now decided Charlie Harper dies off screen, meaning the star can never return to the programme.

According to gossip website TMZ, Charlie's brother Alan and nephew Jake will learn "Charlie Harper has bit the dust" as "TV screens turn dark for just a minute or two".

Sheen was axed from the popular show earlier this year and it was later revealed Punk'd star Ashton Kutcher would replace him as the lead star of the show, although playing a different character.

After landing a role in the sitcom - where he will work with co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones - Kutcher claimed he felt like he had "won the lottery".

While there's no chance of him returning to Two and a Half Men, Sheen is set to sign a deal for his TV comeback this week in a completely new show created "for him".

A source close to the negotiations said: "It's a show created with him and for him.

"The deal should get signed by tomorrow, but with lawyers you never know. No later than Friday."

    With Charlie Sheen gone the show will end. The whole damn show was Sheen.

      I thought half (at least) of the show's attraction was the half-man, or the interaction / influences on the kid. Surely the show wouldn't have worked if it was 2 Men & a Baby, with little input from the kid?

    I recently watched Season 8 and it sort of became ... boring. The same antics over an over. Maybe Charlie leaving is good for the show...

      You have it all wrong. Maybe Charlie leaving is good for him.

    Stuff Sheen, he was getting boring... I remember when they thought spin city was gong to suck when Sheen replaced Michael J Fox. Nobody thought it, but the show became even more popular. I'm telling you, with Kutcher it will be awesome. And sheen's new show will suck...

    Two and a Half Men was basically a dramatised documentary of Charlie Sheen's life.

    Bad decision to kill him off! How can you make a happy show - sad! So wrong!

    If Kutcher will potray the image of that crazy guy in That 70s Show it will work.

    @Ben: + 1. Two and a half men will never be the same again. They might as well cut the show now.

  • Gazza69 - 2011-06-29 09:03

    Winning!!!! I won't watch two and a half men without Charlie...rather cancel the show....At least Charlie didn't have to get into character, he was the character!!! RIP Two and a half men.....
