Chuck Lorre Opening 'Two And a Half Men' With Funeral

You know Chuck Lorre couldn’t resist playing God and killing off Charlie Sheen’s character in the next season of Two and a Half Men.

According to reports, the episode will open with Charlie Harper’s funeral. Morbid, yes, but I don’t think Lorre would have it any other way after being threatened and sued by Sheen in real life. The memorial service will reportedly be attended by Harper’s slue of girlfriends throughout the series.

Harper’s Malibu pad will then be put on the market, and real-life celebs will make cameos as potential buyers. Rumor has it Ashton Kutcher’s character will buy the house. Somehow John Cryer and Angus T. Jones will remain on the show.

I, for one, can’t wait to watch Chuck Lorre’s passive aggressive jokes at Charlie Sheen’s expense. Not to mention what he’s going to say on that infamous Vanity Card. But overall, my guess is that people will tune in to the first few episodes and then give up, unless Ashton can somehow save this.

CBS is keeping tight-lipped on any details, possibly even asking the audience members to sign non-disclosure agreements during the taping.

Two And A Half Men returns on September 19 and is supposed to be a two-part episode.
