Chuck Lorre solidifying “Men” plans without Charlie Sheen


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Two and a Half Men” co-creator Chuck Lorre is taking the first steps to salvage his smash-hit sitcom in the wake of “Hurricane” Charlie Sheen … and it looks like Sheen will have no part to play in what comes next.

Instead, Lorre reportedly is planning to reboot the sitcom with original star Jon Cryer and a new character who has yet to be revealed. THR reports that Lorre “is said to have presented close associates and ‘Men’ co-star Jon Cryer with the plan, and the studio and network are aware of his intentions.”

Meanwhile, THR goes on to add that while CBS has not officially renewed the show for a ninth season, talent reps “say that Warners has quietly begun pursuing an actor to appear in the series next season,” and that speculation “has ranged from the plausible to the peculiar, with names from Woody Harrelson to Jeremy Piven to Bob Saget being bandied about.”
