'Two And A Half Men'

On the Chopping Block

4/28/2011 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a 50/50 chance "Two and a Half Men" will not come back for a 9th season ... people connected with the production tell TMZ.

There are certain things we know for sure ...

-- Charlie Sheen will NOT be coming back to the show
-- Chuck Lorre has a plan for re-tooling the show, but no deals with replacement actors have been made.  In fact, no offers have even been put on the table.
-- A decision on the fate of "Men" will be made before May 18.

The Hollywood Reporter says Lorre is thinking of beefing up Jon Cryer's role and bringing a new actor onboard to replace Sheen.  H.R. is saying some of the candidates are Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget.

One well-connected source tells TMZ, "There really is a good chance the show won't come back."

Stay tuned...

I have watched 2 1/2 Men since day one and to be honest, Charlie was never the show for me. I got a kick out of crazy Rose, their mom and Jake when he was little. Even Berta and Judith made me laugh. Always thought Alan was a wimp though.

Charlie role was made for Charlie so I'm glad Chuck is retooling the show to bring it from another angle, after all the show is called 2 1/2 Men not The Charlie Sheen show.

I think they should go with a an up and coming fresh face, someone a bit younger than Charlie, nice looking but not so much a womanizer.

I hope they try something and bring the show back. Who knows, it could be better than the original.

PLEASE, DROP THE SHOW! Too much unfavorable history to be reminded of!!! Mr Lorre is a talented writer who can come up with another excellent show. Guaranteed!

If the cast and crew and Chuck Lorre can make Charlie Sheen amusing and entertaining, they could do the same for a door knob or a light switch.

I think Robert Downey Jr, would be an excellent replacement for Charlie.

It needs to end. You cannot replace a main character like that and have the show be as good.

have only watched earlier episodes (reruns) but I could see it retooled with Woody Harrelson as a airhead cousin from the midwest and have Alan and Jake as his 'tour guides' for the California lifestyle.

Replace him with "Martin Sheen" for one episode. Just tell the truth that he was on a binge for a couple of months and he aged, then at the end have Angus run out claiming Uncle Charlie is dead, end of show!

I won't bother with it even if they brought Charlie back. I have better things to do with my life like pick the lint out of my belly button!
