Monday night, Comedy Central will be airing their Roast of Charlie Sheen, not coincidentally, on the same night that CBS will be debuting the ninth season of Two and a Half Men. Sheen recently sat down with the Today Show’s Matt Lauer and they discussed the actor’s health, personal life, and recent career debacle. During the interview, Sheen was asked if he would be open to returning and he had an interesting idea.
Matt Lauer: What are your thoughts about Two and a Half Men with Ashton? Do you wish them well? Do you wish him well?
Charlie Sheen: Absolutely. I think he’s going to be great. I think he’s got such charisma and great comedic timing and he’s such a handsome young man.
Lauer: Will you watch it?
Sheen: Oh, of course I will. Of course I will.
Lauer: With a little pain?
Sheen: Oh yeah, but I’m also really curious about what happened to “me.” Because I don’t look at it just as what they’re doing moving forward but as what I left behind for them to continue. And how they’re going to figure all that out. So, my hat’s off to them if they can pull it off.
Lauer: The potential is there for one major guest appearance, down the road.
Sheen: “From your mouth,” you know? (laughs) Oh, absolutely, absolutely. If they wanted, or needed, or thought that was a good idea. I’m completely on board for that.
Lauer: You have some other projects…
Sheen: (interrupting) That could be the closure. Sorry for interrupting you. I’ll be in the final episode.
Lauer: You think?
Sheen: Don’t you think?
Lauer: I would do it. That would get the biggest ratings you could ever imagine.
Sheen: Unless “I’m” really dead. There was no body at the funeral. There was no urn.
Lauer: …That would be interesting.
What do you think? Would you like to Sheen return for a guest shot? Even if you aren’t a fan of the show, would you tune in to the series finale to see it?
