Charlie Sheen Endorses Rob Lowe as Two and a Half Men Replacement
Charlie Sheen might have Tiger Blood and Adonis DNA, but he's taking back some of what he said.
The embattled actor returned to the air Wednesday morning and apologized for some of his recent rants, including calling his Two and a Half men costar Jon Cryer a "troll."
"I was in a mood, and I threw that out there," Sheen, 45, told Los Angeles radio station K-Earth 101, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter. "It's a half apology-- it's an apol!"
The actor also claimed he's been talking to rumored replacement Rob Lowe, who currently stars on NBC's Parks and Recreation. "He's a buddy of mine, he's a beautiful man, a brilliant actor, and I hope he does it and kicks its ass because I still get (paid)." Sheen and Lowe, 46, grew up together in Hollywood; Sheen's older brother Emilio Estevez and Lowe were pals in the Hollywood "Brat Pack" of the 80s.
On Tuesday, 35 percent of 14,000 voters on Usmagazine.com picked Lowe as the best replacement for Sheen. Glee guest star John Stamos racked up 55 percent of the votes, while Seinfeld vet Jason Alexander won 9 percent.
Sheen even doled out some advice for Lowe, Stamos or any actor trying to fill his Men shoes. "Don't look at the 177 episodes I brilliantly did. Just park those! Ignore the 400 reruns every week that you can't avoid. Cancel your Sheen app. I'd recommend, in all seriousness, that they make it their own."
