Charlie Sheen wants back on 'Two and a Half Men'
Actor tells Letterman he'll do one last episode but insults show and CBS
"I would like to go back," he said.
And why not? Sheen's been the sitcom's 800-lb. gorilla ever since Ashton Kutcher stepped into his shadow last year. Introducing Charlie Harper's ghost wouldn't be pack quite the punch of Bob Newhart's awakening next to Suzanne Pleshette on the final "Newhart." But it would be must-see.
Well, one of the reasons why not revealed itself when Letterman pointed out to Sheen that his character on the show is dead, and Sheen then replied: "But so is the show."
Sheen -- who famously melted down while feuding with "Two and a Half Men" executive producer in 2011 -- then did his best to backpedal. With markedly less sincerity, he said "they're doing the best they can" and that Kutcher "does a great job."
Check out the footage:
"It's nice to be back in the CBS family -- even as a foster child," he said, adding: "They're nice until they fire you."
Would you watch Sheen's return to "Two and a Half Men"? And do you think it could happen without Sheen shooting himself in the foot first?
"Two and a Half Men" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
Hate to admit it..goes against my better judgement...still a fan of Charlie Sheen...maybe I should go into rehab?
