Chuck Lorre Couldn’t Watch Two and a Half Men for Years
Sheen appeared on 177 episodes of Two and a Half Men from 2003 to 2011 alongside co-stars Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Holland Taylor and Conchata Ferrell. In fact, Lorre said the unique synergy between the cast is what helped pull him back.
“The chemistry between him and Jon and Angus and Holland Taylor,” Lorre said, “and, oh my goodness, Conchata Ferrell, who has passed away. It was a beautiful cast.”
After Sheen’s character was killed off the show, Ashton Kutcher replaced him for the final four seasons from 2011 to 2015. Kutcher played Walden Schmidt, a billionaire who bought the house owned by Sheen’s character following his death.
In 2013, Sheen attempted to mend fences with Lorre, tweeting: “Hey Chuck. I have an idea that u need to hear after I make amends to you and yours. Which I will do in person. xox c”
It’s unclear if the two ever met, but now that Lorre’s back watching reruns of the show they turned into a smash hit, maybe bygones can finally be bygones.
