Watch out Uncle Jesse, Charlie Sheen is after you and your great mane of hair. The wayward actor has responded to reports that John Stamos will replace him on Two and a Half Men actor and it’s no surprise that he is completely dismissing the rumors.
Charlie, 45, called the rumor a “tragic joke.”
“If they do that then they deserve their failures and the follies,” he told TMZ of the rumor that John would take on a new role to help reinvent the hit CBS sitcom.
According to TMZ sources, however, there is no plan for a replacement yet.
Even John took to his Twitter to dismiss the claims.
“contrary to the rumors, i am not replacing charlie sheen on two and half men. however, martin sheen has asked me to be his son.” he quipped on Twitter, making a jab at the actor who is continuing on his bender of rants, goddesses and TV interviews.
Rumors started buzzing after E! Online’s Mark Malkin reported that the recent Glee star was chatting it up with CBS President Les Moonves on Saturday about replacing Charlie on Men.
“They were at the bar talking and Les asked John if he’d be interested in replacing Charlie,” a source in the E! report is quoted as saying. “It wouldn’t be to play Charlie’s character but they talked more about introducing a new character.”
