Charlie Sheen has expressed his disappointment with the new series of Two And A Half Men.
The controversial actor was fired from his role as Charlie Harper in the hit US sitcom after a public spat with producer Chuck Lorre, and increasingly erratic behaviour. He was replaced in the lead role by Ashton Kutcher.
But now Sheen has hit out at the reboot, telling TMZ: “I’m extremely disappointed with how they’re handling what I left behind.” Of Kutcher’s performance as his replacement, he added: “He’s doing the best he can. I don’t think the role is cursed.”
At the beginning of the show’s ninth season, Harper’s funeral takes place, having died off screen after falling in front of a moving train. “His body just exploded like a balloon full of meat,” it is explained. Kutcher’s character of billionaire Walden Schmit is then introduced as the new male lead. The episode brought in almost 28 million viewers in the US, but has since seen a steady decline since.
