Charlie Sheen's Two and a Half Men funeral
Wednesday 03 August 2011
The 'Two and a Half Men' season premiere will feature Charlie Harper's funeral.
The lothario played by Charlie Sheen - who was sacked from the show and replaced by Ashton Kutcher earlier this year after a bitter war of words with boss Chuck Lorre - will be killed off and his funeral attended by a host of former girlfriends, his brother Alan (Jon Cryer) and nephew Jake (Angus T. Jones) according to Deadline.com.
It is believed that Ashton's character will buy Charlie's luxurious beachfront condominium after a number of buyers - including a selection of celebrity guest stars - view the property but Alan and Jake will remain living there despite Charlie's death.
It was previously believed Charlie would leave the show by moving to Paris after creator Chuck planned to use the final scenes he shot as the bad boy - which see him and his stalker Rose leaving for the airport to catch a flight to the French capital - to explain his character's absence when the show returns.
However, after being subjected to a torrent of abuse, Chuck has now decided to remove all trace of the character from the sitcom. Charlie has previously ranted: "Hiya Chucky Cheeseball. Where ya hiding silly clown? Behind your narcissism, your greed? Hatred of yourself or women, which personality are you hiding behind you little worm? I see you behind your plastic smile, bitchy pout and desperate need to be liked. Forget love - that ship sailed when you were born - to use one of your unfunny jokes. Good luck with those tin cans s**tbrain.
"Think of me often loser, think of me as you pray to the silly god of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous). Can you smell your soul, can you smell the rotting dog s**t?"
