Charlie Harper

Dies Tragic Death

6/27/2011 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Two and a Half Men" will turn dark for just a minute or two when it premieres in September ... because Alan and Jake will learn Charlie Harper bit the dust.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ ... Chuck Lorre's plan is to make sure Charlie Sheen can NEVER come back on the show.  Although the first show won't be filmed until August 5, producers have been kicking around scenarios, which include Charlie driving a car over a cliff. 

Of course, it would be art imitating life, because two of Charlie Sheen's cars went down a cliff on Mulholland Drive.

As for how Ashton Kutcher enters the picture, there's been talk that he buys Charlie's house after Charlie kicks the bucket.

Sources tell us ... the first script still isn't locked and Lorre often makes changes until close to taping, but it's pretty clear -- Charlie Harper is pushin' up daisies.

Charlie has been making me laugh for years. If those idiots kill off his character, I won't be watching even though I do think Kutcher is funny. Charlie needs support and understanding - not a slap in the face.

Why don't they Ashton win Charlie's house in a poker game?? That'll work.

That's OK. If the show fails and they need to bring Charlie back they can always say it was a tragic mistake, they buried someone else and Charlie was roaming around with amnesia. This is dark though. Chuck, the show is supposed to be funny. Remember?

This show is going to suck now. Ashton Kutcher can't act, and isn't funny. Can't wait till it gets cancelled and Chuck Lorre burns. TROLLS!

i think they got this idea from RYAN DUNN passing away in a car crash. :(

There is no Two and a half men without Charlie. Killing him off is paramount to kill off the entire show. And the premise that Ashton's character buying Charlie's house and letting Alan and Jake continue to live there with him is idiotic. I can maybe see Alan inheriting the house and renting a room to Ashton. But whatever inane ideas they ultimately come up with will not matter because it will be the begining on the end. I would be surprised if the show lasts one season.

But in Sheen's last filmed episode, wasn't he running off to europe with Rose to get married?

To explain why he's not on the show, he could die in a plain crash, or simply say he's living in Europe with Rose.

Even funnier: After the marrage, Rose murders Charlie in his sleep, proving to all she's the fruitcake we all know she is.

why not have charlie in an on his way to Tahiti or Bali - drunk and leaves his house and possesions to a stranger (Ashton) - then the plane goes down and Charlies gone and Ashton gets the house and the relatives.

I figured Kutcher would be a long-lost son of Charlie's, find out his dad died, and move in with Alan to get know the family.
