Charlie Sheen Planning Return to 'Two and a Half Men'
By Jackie Willis
This former Two and a Half Men star is looking to make a comeback.
Charlie Sheen revealed to TV Guide Magazine that he's interested in returning to the CBS sitcom as it nears its series finale. "I've reached out to them and they've reached back," Sheen, who currently stars on FX's Anger Management, admitted. "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."
The actor added that he thinks the return of his character Charlie Harper to Men would mean "good will and a tip of the hat to the fans."
"On the record, I would love to [return]," he said.
Sheen had quite the infamous exit from the hit sitcom in 2011 after taking a few jabs at executive producer Chuck Lorre. This was also the year he bizarrely tweeted A LOT about "winning" and "tiger blood."
When the wildly popular CBS show returned in the fall of that year, Sheen's character had been killed off and Ashton Kutcher had joined the Men cast. The 49-year-old almost immediately jumped into production on Anger Management.
So, has Sheen made amends with Lorre in 2014? "Ethereally we have, personally we have not," Sheen told the magazine. "But I'm easy to grab. He was doing his job, I was doing mine. At the end of the day, the guy's a genius. Look at what he does. I don't have to spend time with him anymore for him to be brilliant. I wish him nothing but the best."
While Sheen may be optimistic about returning to Men, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said at this summer's Television Critics Association press tour that they had no plans to have him return.

Back in July, cameras were on Sheen when he announced at a Taco Bell drive-thru that he was "f**king hammered." See the public intoxication, below:
