Wow, it hasn’t been that long, but already I’m sick of Charlie Sheen. So let’s talk about a few other actors who have a chance at “winning” a lead in the most successful sitcom on TV, now that Sheen’s been sacked. Of course, it’s likely that audiences will tune away from “Two and a Half Men” without Sheen, but with so much money at stake, who can blame Warner Bros and CBS for trying to keep a terrible show alive by making it worse?
According to rumors, producer Chuck Lorre‘s shortlist includes Rob Lowe, Jerry O’Connell, and the now infamous choice of John Stamos. I’d like to see Lowe stay on”Parks and Recreation,” so I hope Lorre takes Uncle Jesse or the guy from “Sliders.” Two other candidates are his own dad, Martin Sheen – I’d love to be a fly on the wall at that Thanksgiving dinner – and noted non-male Heather Locklear. That would obviously take the show in a different direction, in which 1 out of the 2 1/2 men had a vagina.
