Rob Lowe Replacing Charlie Sheen??

| Filed under: TV NewsCharlie SheenRob Lowe

Rob Lowe In For Sheen Maybe

Apparently the infamous arch-nemesis of Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre, has been having meetings about going ahead on Two and a Half Men without Sheen, and has been thinking about who could replace him.

The sources say that Lorre and Co. have been in contact with Rob Lowe's representation, and that he could be in the running as a permanent substitute.

Nothing has been decided yet, and it looks like there's a short list of possible replacements, but the meat of it is that Lorre has been holding internal meetings and seems to be interested in keeping the show alive past all this mess.

Lowe, who is on Parks and Rec right now, might not even be able to do it anyway for that reason. The other reason would be that he's pretty close to the Sheen family to begin with.

We say that if he could do it, he'd be an incredible choice. He's had a bit of a come-back recently with his roles on both Parks and Recreation and Californication!

What would U think if Lowe replaced Sheen??

    NO NO NO ROBERT DOWNY JR….. ALL THE WAY! ROB LOWE IS GOOD AND CHARMING AND ALL BUT ROBERT KNOWS HOW TO BE GHETTO HE WOULD A BETTER CHOICE TO REPLACE CHARLIE. MICKEY ROUKE WOULD BE GOOD EXCPT HES TO UGLY



  2. 2

    Charlie will be back next year. There is no Two and a Half Men without him.



  3. 3

    I agree Robert Downy jr. would be cool. Anyway Don't want Chuck Lorre. 2 1/2 men without charlie won't be the same anymore anyway. It's gonna be cancelled after one season anyway.



  4. 4

    I like Rob Lowe, however, you cant replace the star of the show with someone else. Especially after all these years. Stick a fork in it CBS, the show is done. No Charlie, no show.



  5. 5

    short memory Hollywood- Rob Lowe, sex tape with 16 year old girl….no one else remember this one? Guess the morals and values of Rob cannot be worse than Charlie's



  6. 6

    gr8 now the two main characters will appear to be gay



  7. 7

    There is no two and a alf men without charlie sheen… and rob lowe looks way too gay for this part.



  8. 8

    Dear god, Perez, please hire an editor. Again, I suggest myself.



  9. 9

    If I remember correctly aren't they all from Oakwood, OH? Seems I remember hearing this when I lived in Centerville back in the 80's.



  10. 10

    could be an interesting move…there's no reason why they can't try to switch the show up, the rest of the cast is so funny and talented, could work. how about someone else from the brat pack, what ever happened to judd nelson?



  11. 11

    I think Rob Lowe would be excellent. He too has a soiled past, but has gotten his shit together. He is a bad boy too, but more reliable than Mr. Winning.



  12. 12

    You cant have it without charlie and i hate when shows replace a character! Arghh! Its ridiculous! However if they made Charlie go on holiday and Robert Downey jr came in to watch the house or something.. That i would watch!!



  13. 13

    Can't replace a heel with a baby face.

  14. @v@ says – reply to this

    Wow. This guy's past has alleged shady tales too. I guess he's more controllable.



  15. 15

    Re: trout360 – heh heh. It just so happens Judd Nelson appeared on an episode of Two and a Half Men this season as the ex-husband of Jon Cryer's girlfriend….the episode was just repeated a couple of weeks ago.



  16. 16

    From West Wing to Two and a Half Men?? Oh dear….



  17. 17

    Charlie Sheen cannot be replaced. Besides, didn't Rob take advantage of a 16-year-old in the 90's ? Get well soon,Charlie…puhleazee



  18. 18

    only mathew mcconaughey could pull it off.a malibu hippi …but i,m sure he wouldn,t want it..



  19. 19

    NO, John Stamos please.



  20. 20

    Please. I can't see that being a good career move for Lowe.



  21. 21

    i hear that rob lowe is just as difficult an actor and as big an a**hole as charlie sheen. what happened to his half a billion media company project with tom barrack? why should they continue making this crappy show? i don't get it why two and a half men is so popular. after everybody loves raymond went off the air, isn't the three-camera sitcom format pretty much dead? people only watch two and a half men because it's the only one left from that bygone era.



  22. 22

    I vote for Stamos or Bateman.



  23. 23

    ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. AS A NEW CHARACTER. A HALF BROTHER OR SOMETHING.
    ROBERT DOWNEY JR. WOULD BE EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.!
    ROBERT DOWNEY JR. IF THEY WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET HIM TO AGREE!



  24. 24

    The show sucks who cares.Maybe after Charlie dies(which will be soon)they can use his corpse.They can hire an actor to do the voice overs.



  25. 25

    TOO much botox and plastic surgery to look real anymore

    and wait whats that ??????????

    WHOOOOOOP WHOOOOOP WHOOOOP WHOOOOOP

    oh sorry my GAYDAR just went off
    ————————————-



  26. 26

    that guy looks like he has had as much plastic surgery as courtney cox- not sexy at all



  27. 27

    Hmm. Robert Downey Jr. would never slum it full-time on network TV, but Rob Lowe's an inspired choice. Could def work.

    Wow, Charlie. Looks like you really are kaput. How's that for winning?



  28. 28

    Re: RRRGOB – Robery Downey Jr. is MOVIE STAR!!! He's making another Iron Man and another Sherlock Holmes. He doesn't need Two a 1/2 men.
    And either does Rob Lowe.



  29. 29

    Reliable source tells me the deal for Lowe is a done…



  30. 30

    The show is what it is because of charlie, replacing him with someone like Rob Lowe would be like substituting Miley Cyrus for Madonna! But I think Chuck probably already knows that.



  31. 31

    I'll never watch the show again without Charlie.



  32. 32

    The part was, I believe, written for Sheen. It is an actor-centric part. This isn't putting Mr. Sheen on a pedestal or anything in terms of talent, but any actor worth 5 cents that has a show tailored around a fiction of their life is going to be the only one for that show. A major re-write would be i order and can that be done in time for next season??

    I rarely watch the show now but would definitely watch it with Lowe on board. Isn't he the go-to guy for saving shows? He gets better with age too.

    Re: passingthetime – What's wrong with you? posting that every chance you get. IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO!! He's been married with kids for almost that long! Like no other guy has had sex with an underaged girl while thinking they were old enough? It's the entire premise of the show Californication practically!! He made the mistake once and learned from it!!



  35. 35

    hmmm…James Spader??

  36. uyeah says – reply to this

    Re: coach mike – He doesn't have any plastic surgery. He's naturally good looking.



  37. 37

    omg I LOVE Rob Lowe!!! IF this happened I would be ecstatic.



  38. 38

    if charlie isn't in the show. i'm not going to watch it. you just CAN'T replace charlie sheen. i mean… he's charlie sheen!

    Re: howl77 – If you're an editor you should know then that God is capitalized.



  40. 40

    NO ONE CAN REPLACE CHARLIE SHEEN HE IS THAT CHARACTER MY FAVORITE SHOW LOVE ALL THE CHARACTERS………….



  41. 41

    I might start watching this show if Rob Lowe comes on board!!!



  42. 42

    He is SO HOTT! Look at those beautiful eyes….



  43. 43

    Rob Lowe is hawt! Doesn't matter what he's in, he can flash his baby blues anywhere and be a star!

    I HATE 2-1/2 Men. Dumbest show ever.



  44. 44

    Charlie Harper is Charlie Sheen.



  45. 45

    As much as I dislike charlie sheen i agree with some of you. if they're gonna replace him they need to find someone that can fit into the whole "ladies man" persona charlie (the character) had (IE: John stamos, Robert downey jr). So unless they plan to replace charlie with like Alan's gay cousin I seriously wouldn't hire this guy, he looks so effeminate and gay is not even funny.
