Will 'Two and a Half Men' kill off Charlie Sheen's character?
You may perhaps have heard that Charlie Sheen got fired from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" and will be replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Now, the producers may try to find the funny at a funeral — for Sheen's character, of course.
A two-part premiere will take place after the death of Charlie Harper (Sheen), according to the site Deadline.com, which offered no attribution for the details. Charlie's girlfriends will be seen traipsing through his house, which will be put on the market. The trail of prospective buyers will give various celebrities an opportunity for walk-ons, according to Deadline.
Exactly how Charlie will be dispatched is still an open question, but one popular early guess has him driving over a cliff.
A spokesman for Warner Bros., which makes the series, declined to comment. "All speculation," he said.
Meanwhile, Warners, CBS and Kutcher's publicist seem to be keeping tight wraps on their new star. The network will not include a panel for "Two and a Half Men" during its Wednesday sessions at the TV press tour in Beverly Hills. And the PR team seems intent on keeping Kutcher away from the media until after the premiere.
Trackers, will you tune in for the "Men" premiere?
