Grant tipped to replace Sheen

HUGH GRANT is reportedly in negotiations to replace Charlie Sheen on CBS’ Two and a Half Men.

A person familiar with the situation said the British actor was in negotiations to join the sitcom as its new leading man. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because producer Warner Bros. and CBS hadn’t authorised public comment, said the talks had stalled without resolution.

Reports that Grant had been offered $1 million-plus (€700,000) an episode were inaccurate, the person said, adding any Sheen replacement would be paid less than that.
