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.

Lorre is an *******, mocking Charlie's life again. If he does that, he is gonna prove what a jerk he is. Not to mention, that she is gonna kill the whole idea of a sitcom, which is to entertain and laugh. Death in the family? They are gonna turn such episode into a comedy? Good luck with the audience.

You must be young ... Google "The Hogan Family" (AKA "Valerie")

SHEEN (JAN2012) on the FOX network looks way more interesting than any comedy on CB eye`ss other than rules of engagement-Sandlers CBS tv show.When MASHEEN walks into the foxs studios they NEW face of comedy on TV will be sheen as he has many more years invested into comedys than anyone on TV and the bigscreen isn`t dead to sheen yest either and have has a proven track record there also.I`d bet my money on sheen to come of it all smelling like a ROSE and the rest to fad to black sandlers comedys both in TV land &big will also make mookas

TO: Red-in-Phoenix who wrote: "Seems like a bad idea to me to kill him off. Why not leave the viewers thinking maybe someday he'll make a guest appearance once Chuck has had time to cool down. Wouldn't that keep them watching?"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Good thinking Red! But if they must kill Charlie off, I'd prefer Alan keeping the house and maybe Ashton moving in next door?

One thing for sure, Chuck Lorre sure has a ton of different ways he can go with this.

Charlie could have had a spiritual epiphany and gone off to find inner peace or something similar.
This particular Hollywood ending is just as tired as the xerox machine they use to "create" new shows and episodes

I`d have MAsheen come back and KILL EVERYONE and than fad to red than to black and then put some FN cartoons on CBS before it falls off the comedy mapps as FOX make billions off thiert little cartoons CBS haggles around with itti comedys that lose and go all air all the time,REPLACE 2.5 with reruns of KING OF THE HILL than bring back KING OF THE HILL on CBS and CBS cartoon network is born from foxs leftovers cheap easy and way funnier

What a joke, he can kill off charlie and the viewers will kill off the show. Nothing against ashton but it wont work. I give the show 6 months and I am being hopeful. To Lorre you are as big an ass as charlie has made of himself. It was the battle of who can be the bigger idiot.

It's petty of Lorre to keep sticking it to Charlie at this point.
