A fitting end

NZ Herald reports:

Charlie Sheen’s Two and a Half Men character will meet a horrific death under a subway train – and a Kiwi actress is responsible.

According to gossip site TMZ, sources who attended the taping of Kutcher’s first episode on Friday have revealed how producers decided to kill off his character, Charlie Harper.

They told the showbiz website that Harper marries Rose, the stalker with whom he flew to Paris last season, before meeting a grisly death in the French capital’s Metro network.

At the funeral for Sheen’s character, Rose – played by Kiwi actress Melanie Lynskey – reportedly says she found him in the shower with another woman.

The following day, she says, he slipped and fell while the two were waiting for a subway, with the implication that Rose probably pushed him.

Having Rose kill Charlie is a very fitting end. I still can’t imagine the show working without him though. So much of the humour is based around Charlie’s relationships with his mother, brother and nephew.

Hugh Grant has been weighing a big move: replacing the fired Charlie Sheen on CBS’ Two and a Half Men.

A person familiar with the situation said the British actor was in negotiations to join the sitcom as its new leading man.

Sheen is near impossible to replace, but you know I think Hugh Grant could do it.
