Hugh Grant was very close to replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, according to a report.
Deadline reports that Grant was “deep into final negotiations” to replace Sheen, but backed out.
It’s believed he pulled out due to creative difference, but was offered more than $1 million an episode.
A source says executive producer and co-creator Chuck Lorre only wants to continue with the show “if he can find the right actor and get excited about that”.
Gossipcop.com confirms that Grant “had been in serious negotiations” to replace Sheen on the show, but “the talks seemingly fell through.” The website says that further negotiations between Grant and the show producers are “unlikely”.
What do you think? Do you want to see Charlie replaced? Or have the show cancelled?
