Charlie Sheen has expressed interest in returning for the final season of “Two and a Half Men,” three years after a dispute led to his exit from the series. It was previously rumored that Sheen had been approaching the CBS show’s producers with an idea to appear on the show’s finale.
"I would definitely do it, yeah, yeah. If they'll still have me, I will be there. Yeah, I owe it some measure of closure. I owe it to the fans... I just think it makes sense,” the 49-year-old actor reportedly told Extra’s Terri Seymour when asked if he would consider making a comeback. Sheen also reportedly said that he had a “brilliant idea” for the finale of the Chuck Lorre-produced show but didn't want "to give it away."
"It's the type of moment I think people would talk about for a long time and it wouldn't get in anybody's way. Think it would be a nice tip of the hat... they know I want to do it and I know they're open to it, so, guess we're just a meeting away from making it happen,” he reportedly added.
“Two and a Half Men” premiered in 2003, starring Sheen as Charlie Harper. In March 2011, he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher, whose entry made the Season 9 premiere the highest-rated episode in the series' history.
“Never leave a hit show unless you're fired, right? Was that out loud?” Sheen reportedly said, while talking about his departure from the show.
Sheen also reportedly spoke about his FX series “Anger Management,” revealing that he “would love to have Jack Nicholson appear on our 100th episode because he did the movie.”
Meanwhile, "Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer spoke about Sheen with HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps on Thursday.
"Anyone who's had an addict as a friend knows you live with this fear -- is the next phone call gonna be the one where something horrible has happened?" Cryer reportedly said. "I had that a lot with Charlie, and it was very, very tough to live with."
Cryer added that he knew about Sheen’s struggles with alcohol and substance abuse and that his constant efforts to help Sheen had proved futile.
