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.

You guys are crazy. EVERYBODY would watch, viewership would go way up--even if only because people will want to draw comparisons between the old Charlie and the new Charlie.

Rob Lowe and John Stamos are both girly men, the show needs a man's man to replace Sheen.

I don't think a replacement would be good, but have him come in as a cousin or long lost brother.. I would love to c the show stay on the air. the entire cast is great.

I'm telling you...don't replace Charlie!

It's will be the kiss of death to this show. Just gave away with Rose for all of Season 9. Jon Cryer and those two other guys (Herb and Gordon) are funny together. They can carry this show for 20 episodes. Then just have special guests dropping in ala John Stamos, Steven Tyler, Judd Nelson.

Don't replace Charlie.

Rob won't bite.

He's not a "fill in-type" guy or actor....

Rob Lowe would be a perfect replacement. If Robert Downey, Jr would do television, he also would be a good person to consider.
