Chuck Lorre has concocted a “Two and a Half Men” reboot. Fans of the original Sheen-ified “Two and a Half Men” will take solace in knowing that the only slightly interesting element of the show (Sheen) has been removed and Chuck Lorre’s comedy porridge will soon be pumped back down your gullet, blander than ever.
Of course, without Sheen, that only leaves, at most, 1.5 men, so the rumor mill is halfheartedly churning out speculation as to who the next warm body will be to fill Sheen’s skanky, skanky shoes. The names currently being tossed around are Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven, and Bob Saget, but a Warner Bros. rep says none of those guys are in the running. Some insiders are speculating a “roommate” scenario where guest stars appear for an episode or two as roommates, then take off. This concept sounds ridiculously far-fetched until you think about how long you would be able to handle living with Jon Cryer. A week or two sounds about right.
The show is expected to come back mid-season, but with no word on the fat kid’s involvement. (THR)
