“Two and a Half Men” gearing up for Season 9 surprises
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Few television shows have as much heat on them right now as CBS’ “Two and a Half Men,” which is preparing to rebound from an extremely active offseason that saw the departure of one of its highest-profile stars (Charlie Sheen), the addition of another major celebrity (Ashton Kutcher) and a complete rewrite on the direction of the ratings juggernaut.
All in a days work, right?
Details are starting to emerge on the direction of the Monday evening program. Deadline reports that the cast members “were supposed to get their scripts for the season opener on Friday night, only two days before the Monday table read.” Rumor has it that the Malibu home of Sheen’s character Charlie Harper will be up for sale, and that a number of recognizable celebs “may tour the house, possibly joined by Kutcher.”
Deadline said they didn’t know for sure if Kutcher was playing himself or a fictional character.
And signs also point to Sheen’s character being killed off, as “numerous ex-girlfriends” are expected to attend the table read. Everything is being kept secret and under wraps, but we’ll find out what happens soon enough.
