The actor, who plays Walden Schmidt, an Internet billionaire with a broken heart, filmed his first episode of the CBS sitcom Friday night, which included the funeral of Charlie Sheen's character, TMZ.com reports.
In attendance at Charlie Harper's funeral were Alan (Jon Cryer), Jake (Angus T. Jones), Charlie's stalker Rose (Melanie Lynskey) and one of Charlie's exes (Jenny McCarthy), sources present for the taping told the site. The audience was only privy to certain scenes of the premiere, as to not reveal Charlie's actual cause of death. Some sort of "accident" was the only thing mentioned in front of the live studio audience, though multiple takes were shot. (We're guessing it's an overdose of tiger blood, no?)
Meanwhile, Sheen's not grieving over the death of Charlie Harper. The actor, who was fired in March Warner Bros. TV after months of growing tension between Sheen and creator Chuck Lorre, tells TMZ he plans to celebrate the end of his character. "I will be watching my fake funeral, attended by my fake ex-girlfriends, from my very, very real movie theater, with my very real hotties in tow."
The ninth season of Two and a Half Men premieres on Monday, Sept. 19 at 9/8c on CBS.
