John Stamos on Replacing Charlie Sheen: 'I Don't Think So'
After Thursday's blow-up between "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen and the show's execs, who have shut down production for the rest of the season, there is speculation Sheen will be replaced.
John Stamos is one of the names being thrown around, but the actor told "Extra" at the Thursday's Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night that it wasn't true.
"I don't think so," Stamos said. "I hope Charlie does okay."
Stamos then tweeted Friday, "Contrary to the rumors, I am not replacing Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men," jokingly adding, "however, Martin Sheen has asked me to be his son."
CBS and Warner Bros. announced Thursday they were pulling the plug for the remainder of the season due to Sheen's "statements, conduct and condition." Sheen then launched his own tirade, writing a scathing open letter to TMZ, slamming "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre with anti-Semitic remarks.
Janice Min, Editorial Director of The Hollywood Reporter, told "Extra," "Once you cross the line into anti- Semitism, I think that's when people really turn their backs."
"Extra" Lifechanger and addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky says Sheen needs tough love. "People around him allowed this to play out. He's not gonna be like that when he finally gets sober."
No word yet on if "Two and a Half Men" will return next season.
