As the Charlie Sheen replacement rumors run rampant, comedy genius Seth MacFarlane has weighed in on who he thinks should take on the recently-fired actor’s role on Two and a Half Men. Seth worked with Charlie last year during his guest stint on Family Guy and agrees with Warner Brothers decision to move on without the actor, who has gained notoriety during his whole battle with the creator of the show, Chuck Lorre.
“You know, it’s a tough question,” Seth told Entertainment Weekly at The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump. “My personal experience with Charlie on Family Guy was perfectly pleasant. But given the circumstances I do think [Warner Bros.] made the right choice. It’s hard to say if it can go on without him.”
Seth responded with Sam Rockwell — who most recently starred opposite Hilary Swank in the drama Conviction and opposite Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man — when asked who would be the best replacement for Charlie on the hit CBS sitcom.
Comedian Jeffrey Ross suggested jokingly, “I’d have to go with Larry King, so [Men] would only last a few more episodes.”
