Just like legions of TV fans around the country, Charlie Sheen is already setting his DVR for September 19's Two and a Half Men premiere.
Sure, he was fired from the series in March, but the actor says he can't wait to tune in anyway to see his character Charlie Harper's funeral. "Who's not going to watch? I'll be there front and center. I'm just as curious as everybody else," Sheen, 45, tells Extra.
Deadline.com reported last week that on the new season's first episode — a two-parter that taped Friday — Harper's ex-girlfriends will return to remember him and his Malibu beach house will be put on the market. Celebrity cameos will play a part in the episode, with stars appearing as potential buyers of Harper's old digs.
Though he endured a bad break from Men, Sheen wishes his former colleagues well. "I'm actually rooting hard for them and that worm is turning. It should be exciting. It'll be nice to know that they get some carry-over ratings from people being sort of curious about what happened to their guy."
When it comes to Men's new star, Ashton Kutcher — who will play internet billionaire Walden Schmidt — Sheen is equally as optimistic. "I think Ashton's gonna kill it," he told Extra.
