Charlie Sheen Possibly Returning To ‘Two And A Half Men’

29 September 2014 10:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is not uncommon for a hit Us television series to lose its main star somewhere down the line. In fact, history is riddled with examples of sad occasions where a show has had to continue on without one of its main attractions. George Clooney stopped saving lives for ER, David Duchovny gave up on extra-terrestrial investigation for The X-Files and Steve Carell resigned from the American Office. However, although those shows each carried on to enjoy similar levels of success, few would argue that Charlie Sheen’s departure from Two and a Half Men left the series with a permanent void.

In 2011, Sheen left the hit CBS comedy series after a heavily publicised row with its creator and head writer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory). As you are probably aware, Two and a Half Men continued on with Ashton Kutcher replacing Sheen in the lead role opposite Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. »

Charlie Sheen Wants to Come Back to Two and a Half Men

23 September 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Charlie Sheen's 2011 meltdown was historic, but things have changed a lot since Two and a Half Men killed off his character. Chuck Lorre's sitcom is wrapping this year, and Sheen wants to come back for a final send-off. "I've reached out to them and they've reached back," he said to TV Guide Magazine. "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them." Sheen's FX show, Anger Management, has already shot 87 episodes of its 100-episode order, so he'll soon have the time to dedicate to popping in on Jon Cryer. He claims an end-of-season cameo would be a sign of "good will and a tip of the hat to the fans." It remains to be »

Charlie Sheen Wants to Return to 'Two and a Half Men' For Final Season Sendoff

23 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Will Charlie Sheen return to "Two and a Half Men" for the CBS sitcom's final season? According to the actor, he's on board with a potential comeback -- but it's unclear if he's actually been in touch with creator Chuck Lorre about that possibility.

Sheen made headlines on Tuesday when he told TV Guide that he had reached out to Lorre and CBS, and was having discussions about a potential appearance on "Men" this season.

"We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense," Sheen said of those negotiations. "If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."

But it wouldn't be Sheen without some sort of exaggeration, as it appears that he wasn't exactly truthful with TV Guide about those discussions. E! News reports »

20 Random 'Friends' Facts Every Fan Should Know

22 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So you call yourself a "Friends" fan, eh? You've seen every episode, know all the lyrics to that darn theme song, and consider classic lines ("could I Be wearing anymore clothes?") part of your everyday vocabulary.

"Friends" premiered 20 years ago today on September 22, 1994, and we thought we would honor that big anniversary by putting together 20 little-known facts about the iconic series. Want to see if you're the master of "Friends" trivia? Look no further:

1. Original titles considered for the show included Six of One, Friends Like Us, Insomnia Cafe, and Across the Hall.

2. The apartment numbers got switched as the series went on. Monica and Rachel's original apartment number was 5, but was later changed to 20 because 5 was too small a number for such a high floor. Joey and Chandler's was switched from 4 to 19.

3. Jon Favreau and Jon Cryer were up for the role of Chandler. As you may remember, Jon Favreau »

See Jon Cryer mix love and murder in 'Hit by Lightning' trailer

2 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Jon Cryer is a two-time Emmy winner who now pulls down $620,000 per episode after 12 seasons on TV’s Two and a Half Men. But to another generation, he’s Duckie, the Bff Molly Ringwald should’ve ended up with at the end of Pretty in Pink.

Fair or unfair, those two characters, combined, make it reasonably easy to believe Cryer as a middle-aged man who’s yet to meet his soulmate. In Hit by Lightning, he plays a sad-sack restaurant employee who falls head over heels in love with a beauty (Stephanie Szostak) he meets via an online dating service. »

Ashton Kutcher leads 'Forbes' list of top-earning TV actors

25 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It looks like CBS is treating its actors pretty well, cha-ching-wise.

Two and a Half Men’s Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer take the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid male TV actors with a respective $26 million and $19 million in annual earnings between June 2013 and June 2014. This will be the third year in a row that Kutcher, whose tech cred recently landed him a gig as a product engineer with Lenovo, has landed the top spot.

Movie Moments: Proclamations of Love through the Medium of Song

21 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

God Help the Girl is a tale of love and despair through the medium of song and dance, starring Emily Brown and Olly Alexander. Written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film in part follows Alexander’s bewitched James and his adoration of Eve (Browning,) a troubled, medicated songwriter.

To celebrate the film’s release we take a look at some of the best proclamations of love via the magical form of song in cinema.

Pretty in Pink: Try a Little Tenderness Dir. Howard Deutch, 1986

Admittedly this sequence is mimed, but mimed to Otis Redding and with such panache that Jon Cryer’s Duckie is easily forgiven. Besotted with his best friend and sadly not as bold with his feelings as he is with his sense of fashion, Duckie’s extravagant routine is as a means of impressing his audience; a bewildered Andie (Molly Ringwald)and the quietly impressed Iona. »

CBS

Those waiting for their next 22-episode dose of Sheldon being insane, Penny being a doofus and Leonard being entirely too reasonable might be waiting a little longer. Reports out of La are saying that production has stalled on the upcoming eighth season of The Big Bang Theory, owing to ongoing contract negotiation between the cast and the studio. Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco are among the stars still trying to make a deal over their payment for the next series of the phenomenally popular CBS sitcom, which was due to return on September 22nd.

Allegedly Galecki, Parsons and Cuoco are all seeking sizeable raises in their salary, which have been steadily rising from the $60,000 per episode they were paid in the first three seasons. Right now they’re looking to receive something close to a cool $1 million, as well as more backend money. That amount would put »

Tassler revealed that Walden (Ashton Kutcher), in an attempt to aid his adoption efforts, would ask Alan (Jon Cryer) to marry him.

The plotline was met with both confusion and outrage from some over the idea, however series star Jon Cryer says the last thing anyone on the show is trying to do is "cheapen" ...
