Charlie Sheen drives off a cliff!?

Charlie Sheen drives off a cliff!?

How are they going to explain Charlie’s absense in the next episode of “Two and-a-Half Men”? Why they’ll pull a Valerie Harper (I’m referring to how producers of the hit show “Valerie” dealt with Valerie Harper’s exit – – by killing off her character and instead retitling the series “The Hogan Family” and fixing on the character’s late partner and children).

TMZ says the producers of the once-victorious sitcom are deciding how to explain Sheen’s no-show when the show returns later this year with new lead Ashton Kutcher. The street-stalkers say one of the scenarios being throw about involves the perrenial party boy driving off a cliff.

Says the outlet :

Chuck Lorre’s plan is to make sure Charlie Sheen can NEVER come back on the show. Although the first show won’t be filmed until August 5, producers have been kicking around scenarios, which include Charlie driving a car over a cliff.

Of course, it would be art imitating life, because two of Charlie Sheen’s cars went down a cliff on Mulholland Drive.

As for how Ashton Kutcher enters the picture, there’s been talk that he buys Charlie’s house after Charlie kicks the bucket.

So, one way or another, Charlie will be dead. And stay dead. No guest appearances a’la Michael J.Fox “Spin City” down the track.

Meanwhile, there’s more scuttlebut that Sheen’s got a new show in the works with Lionsgate.

“Charlie has inked a deal with Lionsgate Television to create and star in a new sitcom,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “Charlie’s character will be very similar to the one he played on Two And a Half Men, however the show will be a lot racier.

“Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner. TBS recently expanded their comedy division with the acquisition of The Conan O’Brien Show after his fall out with NBC. Plus cable makes more sense because it offers more creative freedom,” our insider explains. “In other words the show can be raunchier and more outrageous, which is perfect for Charlie!

“Lionsgate Television will produce the show. They have committed to ten episodes up front with the option to pick-up and produce 90 more episodes if the ratings prove to be successful. This means the sitcom could be on TV for 8 years, which is a long time! It also means that Charlie will make more money than ever before!”

Radar are the same outlet that reported that CBS wanted Sheen back for “Two and-a-half Men” just shy of the ‘Kutcher’ announcement so take the latter with a grain of salt.
