Never say never. It looks like CBS may want to get Charlie Sheen back on Two and a Half Men.
Word is, CBS head honcho Les Moonves has been trying to convince the folks over at Warner Bros. Television (the company that produces the hit comedy) to get Sheen back on the job.
In fact, RadarOnline says Moonves has also talked with executive producer Chuck Lorre about the possibility of bringing the troubled actor back.
“Moonves wants to get the show back on the air. He’s all for it,” the insider adds. “He says certain people need to forget anything and everything Charlie’s done recently and just move on with the business at hand.
“The core issue is, as he put it, the volatile relationship between Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre. He believes that if CBS and Warner Bros. TV honchos can find a way to get Chuck and Charlie to speak again, cooler heads will prevail.”
It sounds like the discussions on whether or not to bring Charlie Sheen back to TV have been heating up over the last several days.
Sheen was fired earlier this month and subsequently filed a $100 million lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros. TV.
He’s now taking his act on the road with some 20 concert dates scheduled, including many that sold out within hours of the tickets going on sale.
