Hugh Grant is About to Replace Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men”?
Apparently, there will be a new face for Two and a Half Men’s Uncle Charlie… soon!
Since Charlie Sheen got fired in March, even before the show was done filming for the season, the fate of CBS’s hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” has been up in the air.
Sheen’s replacements have been talked about for quite some time, with names like Rob Lowe and John Stamos were rumored as the substitutes.
But yesterday, a trusted source revealed that Hugh Grant has been a serious contender for the role.
“The show was in talks with Hugh Grant to become the new lead,” the source said. “And wouldn’t it be brilliant if it were so?”
There’s no official word on the status of Grant’s negotiations with the show yet, but one thing for sure: any Sheen replacement would be paid less than him (who was reportedly paid $1.8 million an episode before quitting).
50-year-old Grant is already a household name in romantic comedies. The British actor had starred in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Notting Hill,” but hasn’t appeared in a box-office hit for several years.
So, if Grant is the one chosen to replace Charlie Sheen, could he be a great addition for the series? Do you approve? Let’s wait and see!
