Charlie Harper's

Exit From 'Men' --

Dee Plane!!!

6/3/2011 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Harper -- Charlie Sheen's character on "Two and a Half Men" -- will probably get a "French kiss off" from creator Chuck Lorre.  Worry not ... we'll explain.

During the last original episode that aired February 14, Harper and his stalker/neighbor Rose were headed for the airport to catch a flight to Paris.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... it's likely Lorre will use the flight to rid the show of Charlie Harper once and for all.   And get this -- the flight was never intended to be a cliffhanger -- it just happened that was the last episode shot before Charlie Sheen melted down.

Of course, the obvious scenario is a plane crash.  But our sources say that's not going to happen because producers are not going to make the other passengers sacrificial lambs -- even though they don't really exist.

As for what Lorre is planning ... we're told it's not in cement, but Charlie Harper could bid adieu to Malibu and say bonjour to Paris.

"Charlie Sheen is now telling a few pals that he’s angry with himself about “really screwing things up” with the antics that led the actor to lose his starring role on “Two and a Half Men.”

Apparently, Sheen thinks there is a good chance the new “Men” — with Ashton Kutcher replacing him, but as a new character — could even surpass the huge ratings the TV sitcom snared when he was the star.

A source who should know tells me, “Charlie is a big fan of Ashton’s, but like all actors is extremely competitive. He’s developed a jealousy thing about Ashton, since he knows Ashton is cuter, possibly funnier and over all more hip and cool than he is. He’s developing a typical Charlie obsession about this.”

Charlie Sheen Could End Up a 'Freak Show' Like Mike Tyson or Pee Wee Herman, Expert Says

By Hollie McKay

"Earlier this year, entertainment headlines across the world were dominated by fired “Two And a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen, who embarked on a shocking tirade against his former CBS bosses and in particular, show producer Chuck Lorre.

The Emmy-winning actor sent ratings through the roof on every program from "20/20" to "Good Morning America" to "Today," and Sheen broke a set a record by acquiring one million twitter followers in just over 24 hours after opening an account.

Continuing his “movement,” Sheen launched his own web series entitled “Sheen’s Korner,” where he continued with the nonsensical ranting. And then in April, he kicked off the month-long nationwide tour “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option,” in conjunction with Live Nation, which earned mixed reviews – standing ovations in some cities, booing and early walk-outs in others.

But now the tour is over. And according to the website IMdB, which lists actors' and directors' upcoming projects, Sheen has nothing planned.

“All of this attention may be fun, but it is not making him any real money, and it won’t," Ronn Torossian, CEO of New York-based firm 5WPR, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. "If Sheen doesn’t correct his act soon, he’ll end up being a side show like Mike Tyson, Pee Wee Herman or some freak show. It doesn’t need to be that way.”

From porn stars to actresses to 'goddesses,' Charlie Sheen has dated a wide range of ladies over the years.

“It looks like Charlie is finally coming back down to reality, but unfortunately for him, it might be too late. At first, many accepted it as just ‘Sheen being Sheen’ and ate it up, but now, after the thousandth warlock joke and shot at Lorre, it is simply getting old and tiring,” Torossian said. “The short-lived shtick now seems more like a bad reality show than something America will embrace.”

And with the spotlight now facing away from Sheen, and focusing on other celebrity “scandals” such as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret love child, some experts are even predicting a possible breakdown for the actor.

“Addicts by nature tend to be very narcissistic, and when that is not fed they can do outrageous things to get the attention they crave,” said Los Angeles-based psychologist Nancy Irwin, who does not treat Sheen.

On that note, Sheen’s display of bizarre behavior has had some ugly ramifications.
After broadcasting his “goddesses” (two live-in girlfriends) to the world child amid the March “media tsunami,” child services were quick to swoop in and remove his twin boys from his L.A mansion – otherwise known as Sober Valley Lodge.

Fast forward a few months and Sheen’s infamous mansion is on the market, one of his lady lovers left the love nest and returned to Indiana (although she later vowed to be back), and on some tour stops he even expressed a desire to get his old sitcom job back, and said he was even willing to apologize.

On other occasions, Sheen announced his intention to return to television on rival network. Not surprisingly, no further details on that (possibly phantom?) project were given. And according to reports, the 45-year-old actor is incredibly “jealous” of his younger “Men” replacement, Ashton Kutcher.

So what could possibly be next for Sheen? He earned $2 million an episode for his leading role on the hit CBS show and was deemed the highest-paid actor in television. His one-man tour has come to an end (although he has speculated about taking it overseas.) Will the controversial screen star ever earn that kind of salary ever again?
For that matter, will he ever even act again?

“There are only two ways Charlie is going to be able to command anything close to that kind of money acting. He will have to start taking lesser paychecks in quality projects – and deliver creatively – to re-prove himself again, or he is going to have to collect big checks on riskier projects and hope audiences show up,” said entertainment expert Scott Huver. “But Hollywood is going to be very cautious of working with Charlie again. He has demonstrated that he is a loose cannon that can publicly turn against his colleagues, and his lifestyle suggests that he may also be an insurance risk – and could seriously derail a comeback project."

Crisis management expert Gene Grabowski of Levick Communications agrees.
“He is probably uninsurable. Anyone producing a show has to protect the interests of a network so that they can recover losses in the event of a catastrophe. He has a much better chance as a supporting player in a cast, but his ego likely will not accept that now,” Grabowski said. “Under the cir***stances, talk radio, especially satellite radio, seems a likelier venue than TV because the barriers to entry are lower than in televisio,n and there is always an audience there for extreme viewpoints. In addition, activist groups that call for boycotting him on TV would not have the same leverage.”
What about reality television?

“At this point, Charlie would not likely want to be one in a group cast, so reality TV does not appear the place for him yet,” Grabowski continued. “But in the future, he no doubt would be welcome in that world.”

However, let’s not forget that somewhere beneath all that self-proclaimed tiger blood and Adonis DNA, there’s actually a critically-acclaimed, incredibly talented actor.
“If Charlie wants to have a legitimate career again he needs to stop with all of the drama, leave the ‘act’ behind," Torossian said. "Just stick to what made him popular in the first place -- acting."

@angeleyes, Let me be clear. Sheen is Sheen, he's been doing drugs as long as we know it. It's no secret, even at the beginning of the series. So when they got Charlie to sign, they knew exactly how he was, is and will be.

BUT Charlie Sheen has no “morals clause” in his contract – his personal life has nothing to do with Two and a Half Men. He works professionally. shows on set on time, delivered the lines shoved in his throat. And still ready and willing to work. Only last season that there was a disturbance in work, while he admitted himself to rehab.

It's Lorre, CBS, and Warner Bros that ultimately decided not to continue with him working at the production of Two and a Half Men.

I understand why Sheen was so upset and then went waging a war against them. While he was recuperating from his personal troubles, the studio told him to keep his mouth shut. And he did. But what did he get? Lorre's personal attack with his vanity cards. Try number #330 or #329 for examples.

So it's actually Lorre who cast the first stone. Tell me it's okay for your boss to insult you with your personal life, while you still delivered performance in your work?

So the production shut down, and the crew didn't get paid. This made Sheen mad, because when the actual production of the series was never impacted by his personal life and for not paying the crew when the show is shut down. And when the crews finally got paid again, on whose suggestion was that? It was Sheen who urges them to do so. But the studio didn't acknowledge this in the media.

I love the idea of Charlie driving off a cliff (without Rose) and Ashton being introduced as Charlie's son...that would really stick it to Sheen and also provide digs to Sheen and endless jokes for the show!

Don’t kill Charlie off. Fly him to some village deep in the jungles of South America, air drop him off at an Eskimo whaling camp north of the Arctic Circle or better yet, let him vay cay for an indefinite period of time on an uninhabited island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean where he can really use his creativity to fend for himself. The fresh air alone at any one of these remote locations will clear his head and force him to take care of himself without the trappings of Hollywood. The big payoff will be allowing him to bask in the light of long-term therapeutic benefits of a drug- and bimbo-free environment.

As Charlie fades into the sunset.....so will 2 1/2 Men ! Their killing off of Charlie sounds the death knell for the rest of the show. Like lemmings into the sea so goes the rest of the cast and crew of 2 1/2 Men. Like so many shows before it, the show WON'T GO ON ! Sad.......but true.
