Charlie Sheen -- You Ain't Comin' Back to 'Men'

3/23/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is "no chance" of Charlie Sheen coming back to "Two and a Half Men" -- this according to sources connected to the production of the show.

A story has been circulating that CBS wants Charlie back on the show. Fact is ... Charlie was hired by Warner Bros. and, as TMZ first reported, fired by Warner Bros. Only Warner Bros. can bring him back, and sources directly connected to the production tell us there is "no chance" of that happening.

"Men" creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has been holding meetings about the future of the show and possible re-casting, but Charlie is history.

The story that CBS offered him his job back is simply bogus.  CBS can't rehire Sheen -- period.

They only want him back to kill him off in one of the episodes due so it'll lead to the person filling in for him.

Two and a Half Men is history without Charlie.

Lorre apparently thinks his other two sitcoms are golden, but in fact they're crap. He pretty much ended his career by falling out with Charlie.

No talent at all. His last movie was more than 5 years ago and his last main role in a movie more than a decade ago.
Its not only Warner Bros who doesnt want to hire him anymore.
Its still over me how some folx still adore that pos.
And managing to sell out boring talkshows without even any concept and ideas only shows how advanced some american people are NOT.

@ noonie
agree Chuck Lorre screenplays are so boring and not funny at all and his other show The Big Bang Theory suck even more.

The news circulating is not bogus. CBS's President and CEO Les Moonves made a statement that he wanted Sheen back and that CBS was in talks with producer Chuck Lorre and others at Warner Bros. Sheen is by no means back on the show yet, however CBS is pushing hard for it because of the ratings it's sure to get. Warner Bros doesn't want him back, primarily due to Chuck insisting he wants nothing to do with him.

I think we'll see Sheen back. He has a contract with no morals clause so they either have to pay him or bring him back. It's a win-win for them to bring him back and a lose-lose to keep him out.

@yo

Come back in two and a half years, and let's see how Lorre and Sheen are doing. I'm willing to bet that Sheen will be doing better than Lorre.

From the article--

"CBS can't rehire Sheen -- period."

True, but it can certainly fire Chuck Lorre.

Since this whole controversy erupted, I've been reading his vanity cards every time I've watched a rerun of Two and a Half Men. And I get the impression that he is a very arrogant, self-centered, narcissistic person who is completely full of himself. Granted Charlie Sheen is no angel. But I have a feeling that this dispute isn't Sheen's fault.

uh...Duh!!!!

Who in there right mind would hire him back after the way he has been acting. You shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you.

I hope Charlie gets it together before he completely destroys any chance to redeem his (acting, not ranting) career.
