By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As rumors continue to swirl regarding Charlie Sheen’s potential return to television following his harsh break-up with “Two and a Half Men,” we’re also learning how the writers of the CBS sitcom may erase Sheen’s character from the equation.
According to reports, it will be revealed in the season premiere that Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper, has died. TMZ even speculates that the writers are going to say Sheen’s character drove off of a cliff. That means it’s possible Sheen could return in a flashback or dream sequence, but his character will be killed off, and replaced by a character played by Ashton Kutcher.
But where will Sheen land? Despite reports that Lionsgate was eyeing a vehicle for the one-time television star on TBS, a spokesperson for that network denied it to THR.
“TBS is not in discussions for a possible project with Charlie Sheen,” said the rep.
In addition, HBOP has denied reports that Sheen will topline “Sheen’s Corner” for the cable network. Doors appear to be closing for the troubled actor. We’ll continue to track his progress to see if he can strike a deal somewhere.
