Charlie Sheen's uncle has offered to replace the troubled actor if he decides to leave hit TV sitcom "Two and a Half Men". Sheen is said to be considering leaving the show following a tough start to 2010 - an alleged altercation with his wife Brooke Mueller on 2009 Christmas Day left him facing criminal charges and he entered rehab in February this year to tackle personal issues.

But his uncle Joe Estevez, the younger brother of actor Martin Sheen, is contemplating approaching the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, about appearing on the programme as its newest star.

Estevez's spokesperson tells the actor wants "Two and a Half Men" to continue "for the good of the family", and suggests he could play the uncle of Sheen's character.

And by the way, in the newer episodes I don't like Charlie at all. I mean his head is always tilted down as if he was sleeping, he makes annoying movements with his head. I think lately he's not as good as he was.

Charlie didn't make the show, he's caracter did. So as long as they replace him with a good actor, the show will go on! And it should, there is no reason to stop a show, just because a person has some problems. And we will just get used to the new actor, that's all. Life goes on without him. That's all.

Part of the allure of 2.5 Men was the tongue in cheek "performance" of Charlie playing himself PRIOR to cleaning up his act and laughing at himself. Been there, done that just doesn't work now that he's back on again.

Call it "One and a Half Men" because Jon and Angus are great. There is now show without Charlie, though, and we all know it.

plain and simple: The show will be Charlie. He is the reason that people have been watcing the show for 7 years. It would ultimately be over after Jake graduates anyway(if he does)

"Two and a Half Men" just wouldn't be the same without Charlie. Anything to try and keep it going would be jumping the shark.
