Charlie Sheen is refusing to give up hope on a return to hit sitcom Two and a Half Men, even though producers have made it clear they don’t want him back on the set.
The Anger Management star, who was fired from the show in 2011 following a bust-up with series creator Chuck Lorre, recently told TV Guide magazine he had reached out to TV bosses with an idea for the show’s upcoming finale, and insisted they were interested. But Warner Bros. executives told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that’s not the case.
Undeterred, Sheen is still selling the idea of his return to the show for a final episode – even though his character has been killed off.
Appearing on Ryan Seacrest’s show in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Sheen said, “The first plan was just to get past all the crap that went on in the past and move forward. I actually came up with the idea. I said, ‘Let’s bury the hatchet, but let’s also put a bookend on this thing’. I think I owe it to the fans. I owe it to myself.
“There’s an aspect of closure involved. I think it will be a a nice send-off. I have one idea, they have a couple (of) others. We will get together soon and figure it out, how that makes sense. But not just to honor what I did, but to honor what they did after I left. I think that’s important, too.”
Ashton Kutcher replaced Sheen on the hit comedy and he now stars on the show alongside Jon Cryer.
Two and a Half Men will wrap for good after its current 12th season ends its run later this year.
