CHUCK LORRE’S REVENGE: THE SHOW WILL GO ON WITHOUT CHARLIE SHEEN!
“Two and a Half Men” producer Chuck Lorre kept silent while Charlie Sheen ranted and raved and called him a “stupid little man,” a “maggot,” and worse. He didn’t respond, but he was apparently quietly and methodically planning his revenge. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lorre has notified CBS, Warner Brothers, and Charlie’s costar John Cryer, that he has an idea that will save the show – it involves rebooting the script and hiring a new character. Everybody wants to see the highly profitable show back on the air so it’s almost certain to return – without Charlie. Although Charlie is still trying to worm his way back in, Lorre is anticipating that speculation and publicity about the new casting will steal Charlie’s thunder.
