Rob Lowe Not Replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men
Charlie Sheen may have endorsed Rob Lowe as his Two and a Half Men replacement yesterday, but Parks and Recreation executive producer Michael Schur put an end to rumors by confirming that Rob is locked into a multi-year contract with NBC.
?That?s what we in the television business call ?nonsense,?? Michael told Zap2it. ?Rob is a full-time cast member; he?s on the show for a number of more years, and that?s the end of the story. Sorry I can?t be juicier than that.?
Michael added that the rumor was ?totally unfounded? that Rob will replace Charlie. ?The Internet lit a match and set itself on fire,? he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Among the other names floating around the Internet as possible replacements for Charlie are actors John Stamos and Jerry O?Connell. ?What I would advise them to do, though, is just make it their own,? Charlie said to his unnamed successor. ?Don?t, don?t, don?t think about anything that I?ve done brilliantly on the show for 177,000 episodes? but I would just tell them, make it your own.?
