Charlie Sheen Slams ‘Two And A Half Men’ Finale, Threatens Chuck Lorre
Charlie Sheen featured prominently in Two and a Half Men’s series finale as the butt of the majority of the jokes – and now he’s threatening the show’s creator Chuck Lorre.
Charlie Sheen On ‘Men’ Finale
In the final moments of the Two and a Half Men finale, Sheen’s character Charlie Harper returns to the home he once shared with Alan (Jon Cryer) and Jake (Angus T. Jones). Just as he’s about to enter, a piano falls on his head, killing him. Asked about the unceremonious farewell to his character by a TMZ reporter, Sheen said, “To be that stupid … in my face, really?”
“You must feel safe,” said Sheen, referring to Lorre. “I’m just saying, you must feel safe where you live.” The actor added, “I don’t care if he lives or dies. It doesn’t matter.”
According to Lorre, he had approached Sheen – with whom he’s had a long and drawn out public feud – to come back in a cameo role for the finale. When Sheen declined, Lorre opted to use a body double. After the piano dropped on Charlie, the camera pans to Lorre saying, “Winning,” in his director’s chair. Before he knows it, a piano takes him out as well.
In addition to the kill-off, Sheen’s notorious rants, which often included references to ninjas and tiger’s blood, were a source of material for the finale. At one point Charlie Harper sends a text to Walden (Ashton Kutcher) that reads: “You despicable troll. You thought you could replace my ninja awesomeness, you lame clown. I will deploy army of assassins to destroy you, I will bring my bayonets of truth to the hexagon of death where I will carve my initials into your reptilian skull and cover you in tiger’s blood.”
To sum up Charlie Harper/Sheen’s departure from the picture, Alan states later, “It wasn’t that mysterious. He was taking a lot of drugs and pissed off almost everybody.”
