Promos for the series finale of Two and a Half Men teased about the former lead character Charlie Harper not really being dead. Loyal viewers were led to believe there might be a chance of Charlie (portrayed by Charlie Sheen) returning to his Malibu home for one last laugh. No cigar.
Executive producer Chuck Lorre said “he offered Sheen a chance to come back and be killed by a falling piano,” but Sheen declined. In 2011, Sheen called out Lorre, repeatedly, and publicly. Sheen told TMZ: “I violently hate Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre]. He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p—- punk that I’d never want to be like. That’s me being polite. That piece of s— took money out of my pocket, my family’s pocket, and, most importantly, my second family – my crew’s pocket. You can tell him one thing: I own him.” On the night of the Two and a Half Men series finale, Sheen got the last laugh. He tweeted to his 11.4 million followers: “Attention World: If you’re looking for my much anticipated camo on network TV, you’ll have to check out ‘The Goldbergs’ on Wednesday, February 25 on ABC. I go where the love is.”
