Charlie Sheen is in "deep negotiations" to star in a new sitcom.
The former Two and a Half Men actor—sensationally fired from the show and replaced by Ashton Kutcher after a public spat with its creator Chuck Lorre—could reportedly have signed a deal to appear in the yet-to-be penned series by the end of the week.
According to gossip website TMZ, the sitcom is being "written specifically around Charlie" and would go straight to series without featuring a pilot episode.
The troubled star’s Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer—who plays his brother Alan Harper in the show—recently admitted the cast of the sitcom were initially unsure about continuing without Charlie.
He said: "I love him, he’s a great friend. All of us, none of us wanted to continue with the show if we felt like it was hurting him, and there was a point at which, we felt like, there’s no control over him.
Charlie’s Two and a Half Men alter-ego Charlie Harper is set to be written out of the show by moving to Paris.
