Dykstra Runs Play to Get Sheen Back on 'Men'

4/16/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lenny Dykstra -- who was just arrested for grand theft auto -- concocted a plan to get Charlie Sheen back on "Two and a Half Men" with the help of the famous lawyer who beat OJ Simpson.

TMZ has learned ... a month ago, Lenny contacted famed lawyer Dan Petrocelli -- the guy who beat OJ Simpson down in the wrongful death lawsuit to the tune of $33 million -- and asked him to go to Warner Bros. to restore peace and return Charlie to the show that had made him a fortune.

Sources say ... Lenny contacted Petrocelli "With Charlie's blessing."

Dykstra had good reason to reach out to Petrocelli for the task -- Dan represents WB in several cases, including one involving "Superman." And we're told Dykstra felt he had an "in" with Petrocelli -- who is representing him on various legal matters.

But here's the buzz kill -- we're told Petrocelli turned Dykstra down flat, because it would have been a blatant conflict of interest to represent Charlie at the same time he was representing WB.

Nevertheless, it's interesting that Charlie has been trying to get back on "Men" for at least a month.

Why would Charlie and his lawyer need other people to get him back on 2 1/2 Men? You mean him and his lawyer can't swing it. Doesn't matter who he gets he's not going back.

Sorry Charlie, you fool! You bit the hand that fed you, and there's no going back. I guess you're not "winning" after all. Idiot. Good riddance. Write his character off and carry on.

I wish Charlie wouldn't keep posting in all caps.

Please bring Charlie back to Two and a Half Men. Allow the show to have closure for Charlie and the fans. The show is no good without him. So if they won't bring Charlie back, cancel it and stop talking about it already.

Chuckles has an odd way of asking for his job back.

In between groveling, he is still flipping them off and cussing at them.

Is this the definition of bipolar?

Begging here, cussing there, crazy evvvvery whhhheeerre?

===================

If you didnt see Charlie give this gig closure, you have both eyes wide shut.

Its done, stick a fork in it.

And you can thank Charlie and his 7 gram rocks.

Charley is gone. He isn't coming back. He can't come back. Show's over. It took ALL the characters to make the show work .. Jake, Alan, Berta, Rose, Gordon, The shrink, Herb, Judith, ... and Charlie. Just have a final one hour special to close it down. The reading of the will ... charlies dead, Berta gets a bundle, Jake gets the money and the house, Alan gets NOTHING and has to move out and act like a man.

NOTE TO CHARLIE .... your dad went to Medjugore Yugoslavia many years ago .... see if you can go there with him this summer. seriously. It's an awesome thing. Ask him about it.

Sheen your not getting back on the show that simple.

I just found out that being he was fired he gets no money from re-runs either. He screws himself out of 48 million and no re-run money. OUCH. Now thats WINNING.

Now Sheen is saying if he was told about his lifestyle getting in the way he would have changed. Yeah, right. That was Sheens whole thing haveing his cake and eating it to.

Sheen is blowing smoke up his own ass and knows it.

So this is what Charlie and his lawyer meant by having discussions about his return to Two and 1/2 Men. The "third party," Lenny Dykstra, a washed up, has been, bankrupt, criminal friend, who's lawyer happens to occasionally represent WB in legal matters. Oh, I get it now, 85% done deal, riiiiiiighttttttttt . . . see you back on the show in August, NOT.
