Charlie Sheen, casting director?
The troubled actor and recently deposed star of Two and a Half Men, 45, has told his ongoing radio confessor Dan Patrick, amid excoriating broadcast interviewers for what he considers their judgmental tone, that he really likes John Stamos and Rob Lowe as possible replacements on the CBS sitcom.
“I think they’re both fabulous,” said Sheen, “and my apologies to John. I was rude to him earlier, John Stamos. That was unnecessary.” Last week, when news surfaced that Stamos, 47, may be hired as a successor to Sheen on the show, Sheen called the move a “tragic joke.”
“And Rob’s an old friend and a brilliant actor. And he’s a beautiful man,” Sheen continued. “What I would advise them to do, though, is just make it their own. 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.”
