Could Uncle Jessie be stepping in for Uncle Charlie?
Now that production on Two and a Half Men has been halted for the remainder of the season and Charlie Sheen is at war with creator Chuck Lorre, John Stamos has been approached to possibly replace Sheen, E! News reports.
According to the site, CBS President and CEO Les Moonves talked to Stamos, 47, on Saturday about possibly joining the comedy as a new character.
Upon hearing the buzz, Sheen told Access Hollywood on Monday, "I like John, but he don't have what I have and the show sucks if he's on it. Sorry!"
The report comes less than a week after Stamos debunked the same rumor on Twitter. "Contrary to the rumors, I am not replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and Half Men," he wrote. "However, Martin Sheen has asked me to be his son."
The question is: Who would Stamos play on the sitcom? It is, after all, currently centered on bad boy bachelor Charlie (Sheen), his uptight brother, Alan, (Jon Cryer) and nephew (Angus T. Jones). Would Stamos play Alan and Charlie's long-lost third brother who also has a big beachside mansion for Alan and son to crash? Would Stamos' character also be a bad boy rebel like Charlie's character?
Do you think Stamos should replace Sheen?
