Photo: Charlie Sheen could be back on Two and a Half Men
Crazy Carlos aka Charlie Sheen is reportedly in talks with CBS about the possibility of rejoining the cast of “Two and a Half Men,” the hit show he was fired from just to weeks ago, after he ripped series creator Chuck Lorre in a number of radio and television interviews.
Sheen, whose antics pushed his former network over the edge shortly after he went through “rehab” after being hospitalized following a suspected drug-filled party weekend at his home.
NBC’s Jeff Rossen, via Twitter, is reporting that “sources close to Charlie Sheen tell NBC News, CBS has offered him his job back. Discussions ongoing. Not a done deal.”
Rossen did not name the source, but if any reporter would know the actor’s plans it would be Rossen, who Sheen praised him after their two-part NBC interview.
Hollywoodlife.com is also reporting the possibility of Sheen’s return, and said a show-insider told them, “The rumors are true – CBS wants Charlie back. They saw how popular his tour has become, how it has been selling out, and when word spread that he started talking to Fox about a late-night show, some decision-makers got a little antsy.”
The site’s also-unnamed source said there is an 80 percent chance that Sheen will return, and if that is the case, it will be a complete turnaround from both CBS and Charlie.
It is especially odd, considering Sheen, after being fired from the show, sued for $100 million.
