Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre, two names that are practically synonymous with the hit TV series "Two and a Half Men," are rumored to have reconciled after their highly publicized feud that led to Sheen's termination from the show.
The rumor has it that Sheen has been cast in Lorre's new comedy "How to Be a Bookie," which is set to air on Warner Bros. Discovery's streaming service HBO Max. Neither Sheen nor Lorre's representatives have confirmed this information, and Warner Bros.
Discovery and HBO Max have declined to comment. "How to Be a Bookie" is a series created by Nick Bakay and comedian and actor Sebastian Maniscalco. It will follow the story of a veteran bookie named Maniscalco, who is struggling to survive in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of sports gambling in Los Angeles.
The show is set to have eight episodes, and Sheen is reportedly part of the cast.
The Return of the Prodigal Son
Charlie Sheen was once one of the highest-paid actors on television thanks to his role in "Two and a Half Men," which Lorre co-created with Lee Aronsohn.
However, Sheen's addiction struggles and inappropriate behavior led to his firing from the show. In 2021, Sheen admitted that there were better ways to handle his termination and apologized for his past behavior. He told Yahoo!
News, "I think the growth for me post-meltdown… has to start with absolute ownership of my role in all of it." Despite their turbulent past, Sheen has expressed interest in the possibility of rebooting "Two and a Half Men." He even praised the show's success after his departure and said that it would be fantastic for the fans.
However, in a separate interview on The Kyle And Jackie O Show back in 2017, Sheen still expressed some ill feelings towards Lorre, calling him "the most miserable fcking douchebag" and "the most talentless fcking sack of sht of fcking stupid this side of La Brea." The long-standing feud between Sheen and Lorre may finally be coming to an end as rumors circulate that the two will work together again.
Fans are eager to see what this collaboration will bring and if it will live up to the expectations set by their previous work on "Two and a Half Men."
