Deadline Hollywood has new scoop on how “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre plans to get rid of Charlie Sheen‘s character.
He won’t be taking an extended vacation or a new, faraway job: he’ll be dead.
The first episode of the new season will feature Sheen’s character’s funeral (complete with returns from ex-girlfriends like, perhaps, Jennifer Bini Taylor, pictured at right).
And the house his character lived in will be put on the market.
Ashton Kutcher is expected to make his entrance as one of those potential buyers.
If this approach annoys Sheen, he’ll likely have the chance to work through his issues on his new project, an adaptation of “Anger Management.”
