    There are rumors this morning that if the show does continue that Herb played by Ryan Stiles may take an increased part in the show and become the other man in Two and a Half Men replacing Charlie.

    They are even saying that they might have him move into the Beach house with Alan and Jake.

    Stiles is a really good comedic actor - that'd be a great move.

    I don't know how that would work out, two 'nerds' playing off each other doesn't do it for me.

    I think it would be interesting if they had a different guest actor play Mr. Sheen's part every week. It would be even better if some of them were really inappropriate, like Abe Vigoda or Emma Stone.

    Hey, it could work. Just look at The Big Bang Theory. :)

    Ryan Stiles works for me, but let's not overlook the reality of 'Jake' (Angus Jones),

    How about Warner contracting with ILM for a CGI version of Charlie:D

    That could actually work, but it would be a bizarre precedent.

    They sort of did something like this when Nancy Marchand died between seasons 2 and 3. They took old footage of her head, talking old dialog, and put it over the body of another actress for the 1st episode before she died on the show.

    That's an idea, but the question is, who owns Charlie Sheen's likeness? Does Sheen own and control the rights to his likeness, or does WB?

    I doubt any of the other actors would go along with it, but I thought a fantastic idea for a least 1 or 2 episodes would be to have "Manny Quinn" fill the Charlie slot. The other actors are all talented enough to carry the scenes basically giving the dialog for both. Picture Alan having an argument with Charlie where he continually interjects, "Oh, I know what you're going to say, I'm too cheap to yadda-yadda-yadda".
    Would also be a great parting shot on his acting abilities as well...

    As for long term, I think a great manuever would be to have Charlie die and Jake (as a result of one of Charlie's drunken episodes) inherits the beach house and money. Alan goes from mooching off his loaded drunken Brother to mooching off his loaded lazy son. And the story goes on...

    I really like Stiles, but cannot see him in the role of a womanizing drunk. For one, he's just not a chick magnet (according to a scientific survey I did of two women. :D).

    A younger, trimmer Alex Baldwin would be perfect.

    It shouldn't continue as "2½ Men." I could see a spinoff without a womanizing addict role model, but which probably will result in reduced ratings in the demo male 18-39. The suggestion I outlined before:

    I'd like to see it continue just so it doesn't become another thing Charlie gets to destroy. Writing him out of a couple of episodes this year would have been nice.

    I don't believe changing crazies will save the show.

    I don't think replacing Charlie with another Charlie will work - I know I wouldn't watch if they tried to replace Charlie.

    I'm not sure I'd enjoy a show centered around Rose... I don't see a good way to transition her character from crazy stalker to the centerpiece of a show.

    I do, however, like the idea of having Ryan Stiles become the "other man"... I think you could move away from the drunken womanizer story lines and there's alot they could do with the Herb & Alan & Judith triangle. If the show went that direction, I'd at least give it a try to see how it worked.

    I could really care less about what Charlie does in his personal life! The show is great, that is the ONLY reason why I watch it, what all the characters do on their own time means NOTHING to me.. I however, will not give the show a chance unless charlie is on their.. Its just like me coming to your house to install your Directv, if I do a great job and provide great service, would you really care what I do on my own time? I know I wouldn't, as long as you took care of me in a professional manner I would be happy and would call you back if I needed something.. Thats just my 2 cents.

    I'd care if the tech was a convicted felon for burglary. Even if they only steal during non working hours. You're right otherwise.
