Warner Bros. TV's representative would not confirm or deny the allegation but Lowe himself tweeted about 'Two Men'.

It is not only John Stamos whom the Warner Bros. TV bosses want to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" but Rob Lowe as well. The latter actor has been included in the shortlist to play the lead on the CBS sitcom after Sheen was fired due to his erratic behavior and "moral turpitude."

Series creator Chuck Lorre has reportedly discussed the possibility with Lowe's people. Although Gossip Cop confirmed the story, Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire said Tuesday, March 8 in a statement via the New York Post, "No decisions have been made."

Although a favorite, Lowe's involvement on "Two and a Half Men" can be difficult. He has joined NBC's half-hour comedy "Parks and Recreation" as a regular after guest starring in season two. However, his character Charlie broke up from original character Ann and moved back to Indianapolis.

Meanwhile, Lowe seemed to be in playful mood about the report by cryptically tweeting, "On Spring break with the family, my Two Men are running me ragged! They just go, 24-7" and "Now taking the boys to the Parks And Recreation will be the goal!"

My vote: No replacement. Re-hire Charlie back for a last season and finish the show with respect. To put someone else in that role would be like replacing Lucille Ball in I LOVE LUCY. It doesn't work.
