John Stamos

'There's No Replacing Charlie Sheen'

3/5/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Stamos skillfully deflected our questions yesterday in NY when we asked about rumors he might be replacing Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" -- but there's just something about his answers that makes us wonder ... is Stamos hiding something?

I'd watch again. Mr. Stamos is a great actor and funny, while dark. Fantastic idea!

Stamos cannot replace Charlie. Stamos' Uncle Jesse delivery with the grin doesn't work for TAAHM. It's that ultra-dry almost Alan Alda persona that does the trick there, and Sheen has it down pat.

I don't know if -anyone- could possibly take over this role, as I've previously said, Charlie basically plays himself. If someone did take over, the show would crash and burn in 4 episodes. It's not like this show is in the first season and the iron is hot.

What's absolutely HILARIOUS about this situation is, you have a bunch of execs who LOVE money AND ratings. What would draw the most money and ratings for at least one more season? Getting Charlie back. This fact alone makes it so apparent that we're dealing with personal issues here, and that should NOT be the case with a corporation that is supposed to answer to shareholders. They should maximize profits, and the one thing that would do that before the show is retired is being held off the table like a bunch of 13 yr olds arguing over who gets first ups in a wiffle-ball game.

CBS should show some balls and replace Charlie with the "golden voiced dude" just to show Charlie that the show is about the writers and the delivery AND the channel.

In fact, they could do a whole season with an entirely new "Charlie" every episode and it would be a sensational hit.

See, I could be a Hollywood comedy show writer too, lol.

Cartman omg that's so funny I was thinking the same thing. Every episode different guy. That would be so funny. People would tune in to see who was the new Charlie. Bigger ratings. I tell ya.

I think it would be a good idea. The character could easily be replaced and it would teach Sheen a lesson. I think he's wrong when he says all his fans will follow him, not the show. Other way around, actually. If they don't think John Stamos would be good for the part, look for others. I'm sure out there is someone who would be perfect for the role and appreciate it.
They'll have to do something about his character at some point-he's bound to OD or the sleazy sex will catch up to him or whatever and he'll be gone anyway. Might as well "cut out the cancer" now...and teach him a lesson in the meantime.

At this point in Charlie's life, I could even replace him - he has slipped over the edge.

Anyone who thinks Charlie Sheen can be replaced on 2 1/2 Men AND still have the show be a success is as smart as a box of rocks.

Charlie Sheen = STAR....MASSIVE STAR!

What part of, "2 1/2 Men is based on Charlie Sheen's life" do you not understand.

Seriously, Les and Chuck need to get their sh*t together and get Charlie back NOW and get those remaining 8 episodes out.

Les, Chuck, and WB are really pissing us fans off.

Go to the Amazon website and look up Charlie's book of poetry. Then find the #1 review. It's pretty bizarre and effusive, and it's written by John Stamos, quite a few years ago. Talk about crazy rambling!
