Could Hugh Grant Replace Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men'?

Sources say the charming British star was offered $1 million per episode to take over Sheen's starring role

While the fate of Two and a Half Men is still up in the air, rumors are swirling that Hugh Grant may be the man to replace Charlie Sheen.

According to, the Love Actually star was recently in negotiations with producers, but now they have come to a halt. Though other sources have reported that Grant, 50, was offered $1 million an episode to take over the starring role from Sheen, another insider says the show does not plan to shell out that much dough to anyone.

Rob Lowe and John Stamos' names have also been thrown around as possible Charlie replacements, but no decisions have been made as of yet. Grant's rep has not returned requests for comment, and CBS and Warner Bros. are not giving away any clues as to what direction the show will take.

Grant has a history of playing smooth-talking, womanizing characters, so we think he'd be a seamless replacement for Sheen. The charming Brit also has the quality (much like the tiger-blood-drinking actor) to make us like him despite his questionable characteristics. Plus, scoring a movie star of Grant's caliber would be a major score for the network. We're hoping they manage to work out a deal with the star and keep Men as funny and edgy as it's always been.
