John Stamos To Replace Charlie Sheen?
After hearing the news that Two and a Half Men, starring Charlie Sheen, would be cancelled for the rest of the season, the chances of the show actually ever returning seemed grim. Things might be looking up, however, as CBS may have a replacement, and it’s Uncle Jesse, er, I mean John Stamos.
John Stamos is most well-known and will forever be for his long time role as Uncle Jesse from the show Full House, which ran from 1987-1995. His character was that of a gracious, kind-hearted, loving, gentle and forgiving man who loved his nieces and twin boys, despite his biker/musician personality and way of life.
Now it seems as though he will possibly be acting on the other end of the spectrum, as he recently met with CBS’s president and CEO Les Moonves, who are seriously considering him for the role of Sheen’s character, Charlie.
A source says, They were at the bar talking and Les asked John if he’d be interested in replacing Charlie,” noting, It wouldn’t be to play Charlie’s character, but they talked more about introducing a new character. – dimewars.com
As for Charlie Sheen who messed things up on his own, he’s not too thrilled about the possibility of Stamos taking over:
I love him. I like John, but he doesn’t have what I have and the show sucks if he’s on it. Sorry, just speaking the truth.
Now we see the true jerk in Sheen. I never was a fan of him and I can’t believe his audacity and conceited ways. He has no reason to act like or say such things. After all, he’s the one that got himself fired from his own show. Go figure.
Later, Sheen apologized and attempted to dig himself out of the bottomless pit he’s dug for himself, but I don’t buy it:
I was out of line and you are a beautiful man and a talented man. And if you get the gig, we should talk.
John, if you do get the gig, do us all a favor and walk your deserved self up to that set and act your heart out. It’s what made fans fall in love with you in the first place (well, that and he was really hot) so take the opportunity and “role” with it.
Nothing is set in stone yet; right now it is just a possibility, but this could be a big opportunity for Stamos, as he hasn’t done anything highly memorable in awhile. I don’t think anything will top his role in Full House, but he can certainly try.
What do you think about the possibility of old Jesse playing a part in Two and a Half Men? Should he do it or not, or should CBS just cancel the show all together?
