'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 personally don't think any of the three are right for the role. If they plan to re-tool the show I'd rather see them keep Jon/Alan as the neurotic goofball that he's always been and have Jake/Angus aged into a young womanizing version of Uncle Charlie.

I don't know what drug Chuck Lorre is on but he might as well cancel the show if Charlie isn't coming back. Beefing up Jon Cryer's role isn't going to cut it! Ask any fan and they will tell you "No Alan and Jake spinoff!" Thanks you Chuck Lorre! Losing!!!!!

I love this show no matter what is going on in the personal lives of the actors. It makes me laugh no matter how many times I've seen the show. You can not remake a show such as this with other actors. It just would not be the same. I will miss the series VERY MUCH without Charlie Sheen !! Laughing is necessary and there are not many shows on TV anymore that are as entertaining as this show. They may as well cancel this show entirely if Charlie is not a part of it and start a new show with a new name.

Sheen must be seriously kicking himself right now. Way to piss away a small fortune, shame for him. As for Cryer and the kid, I bet they seriously would like to kick the **** out of sheen for being such a retard.

I don't put all the blame on Charlie. From everything I have read Chuck Lorre is a major butthole and very difficult to work with.

Keep the show w/o Sheen. The other characters are great and can carry the show w/o him.

DV had a great idea... to take it a step further, Jake inherits all of (dead) Charlie's estate, and Jake takes his womanizing place; all the while frustrating Alan even more that Jake has the money AND the GIRL(S)!! Very funny!

Woody Harrelson is the MAN! People would quickly forget about Charlie Sheen with a "seasoned" comedic actor on board! Jon Cryer's character would be well matched with Woody. I would love to see this match up happen!

Chuck Lorre will be crowned as the greatest genius in the history of television if he can retool this thing and make it work. the magic of this show was the interaction of Jon Cryer and Charlie and that will be next to impossible to recreate. Be merciful and let this wounded animal die already.

I would like Woody, but not in place of the jerk Sheen. The show has been wearing thin the last few years anyway. Let it go.

Jon Cryer would be hilarious with Herb. They don't need to bring anyone in to add for Charlies spot. Judith divorces Herb and Herb moves in with Alan. The child they had together they can make a boy and age him and both of them move in with Alan. Send Charlie on a long hiatus after finding out that Rose lied to him about being married. Keep the rest of the cast like Berta, Jake, The Mother, Pizza guy, the whole sha bang. Bring the whole cast back.
