Chuck Lorre: Rob Lowe's An Interesting Replacement!

3/8/2011 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre has had meetings about producing "Two and a Half Men" without Charlie Sheen, and Chuck's people have been talking to Rob Lowe, TMZ has learned.

Rob Lowe Replace Charlie Sheen

Sources connected with Lorre tell us ... the mega-producer has been holding internal meetings about keeping the show going.  Various options have been discussed, and they have a short list of replacements for Charlie's character.

Our sources say ... Lorre's people as well as honchos from Warner Bros. have been in touch with Rob's agent at William Morris-Endeavor, talking about Rob possibly coming onboard.

There are two stumbling blocks for Rob -- he currently stars in "Parks and Recreation," and he grew up with the Sheen family.

No decisions have been made yet, but it looks like there's a real interest in keeping "Men" alive.

UPDATE: Ashton Kutcher.

I think Charlie Sheen has made a BIG mistake. Sheen was good in the show, but it was the chemisty of ALL the characters that made it so worth watching. They were all perfect in their parts. It was NOT Charlie's show....hell, he wasn't even acting just playing himself. Rob Lowe is certainly handsome enough and if his chemistry works with the rest of them, I say BRAVO!

if you're gonna replace Sheen, use David Duchovny.
he is the PERFECT fit.
His 'Hank Moody' character is spot on.

They might as well cancel the show...without Charlie the show will tank no matter who they bring in to replace him...he made the show and I can't even image them replacing him with Rob Lowe..he just doesn't fit the character and didn't he have some kind of sex thing with an underage girl?...and any spin off show with just Alan and Jake won't make it either..Charlie made the show..maybe CBS should think about replacing Lorre..but I do admit that I think Charlie has completely gone over the edge and does need some kind of mental help if he's clean as he says he is and it not drugs or booze causing all these rantings of his.

Rob Lowe? How about Scott Bakula or Dylan Walsh? They would be great, too.

Have Rose "kidnap" Charlie and live happily ever after, "winning" on some deserted island. LOL

That show has great writers, and they don't need Charlie anymore.

...

do you realize that "Rose" is a character based on a real person in Charlie Sheen's life?
How many stories were actually based on his life?

Jake is not funny, Berta and Allen make me laugh like hell, Charlies endless bedroom scenes were so old hat. Hope the new guy does more then lay in bed with women. Mike and Molly is soooo funny and it doesn't have therm in bed all the time...that show rocks.

I think Rob Lowe is perfect. Yes, for a while, until people get used to Rob, ratings may be a little slow, but people forget quickly. I say, go for it! Put the people who are innocent of all this back to work!

Is this F**KTARD Lorre for real? Rob Lowe? Hell, no! Cancel the show entirely then. This Lorre makes me sick to even look at him. I think this ahole had a huge part in destroying Charlie. Les Moonves should've fired Lorre also. The other writer Lee could've ran 2 1/2 Men alone.

Give Charlie another chance to clean himself up and bring him back...but if not then I'm willing to accept John Stamos.
