Will John Stamos Replace Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men'?

Now that Sheen has flown off the handle, sources say that the former Full House star might take his place on CBS' hit show

Is Two and a Half Men looking for Charlie Sheen's replacement?

Last week John Stamos shot down rumors that he had been approached by CBS to replace Sheen on the sitcom, but sources tell E! News that there was some real talk about it happening this past weekend.

According to an insider, CBS boss Les Moonves chatted up Stamos on Saturday night at an industry party, and the topic of Two and a Half Men did come up.

"They were at the bar talking, and Les asked John if he'd be interested in replacing Charlie," says the source. "It wouldn't be to play Charlie's character, but they talked more about introducing a new character."

 

But on Friday, Stamos twittered, "Contrary to the rumors, I am not replacing Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men.' However, Martin Sheen has asked me to be his son."

When Sheen got wind of the possible casting of Stamos, he (of course!) had some choice words.

Calling the rumors a "tragic joke," Sheen told TMZ: "If they do that, then they deserve their failures and the follies."
