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.

Mr Lorre, I think you should have Kathleen Turner play the Uncle of Charlie & Alan, their mother's brother. Yes, "UNCLE" who had a sex change operation. Miss Turner has played this role before with her deep voice. But the kicker is his daughter - played by Jenny McCarthy - takes over where Charlie left off. Jenny likes girls so she dates hot chicks just like Charlie did! You will have so much material with Jon Cryer & Angus - less alone the house keeper - who will make Charlie references from time to time to not alienate his character altogether so fast. * Yes, I know Jenny McCarthy was on the show before - but she's an actress & the audience will understand - give her a slightly different look too. Think about it! .... Mr. Lorre ... please think about it! - TommyA714

PS. one of Jenny's often used lines to Alan and thegirls she dates is, "just think of me as one of the guys" - thus explaining the show title staying the same!
