Charlie Sheen's Funeral on 'Two and a Half Men' (Photos)
Two and a Half Men has been set up in for Charlie Sheen's funeral, and TMZ.com has the first photos (see them bigger here).
There's no coffin or urn, but Sheen's character Charlie Harper's trademark bowling shirt is on display surrounded by elaborate flowers.
The episode will air on Sept. 19, the day after the Emmys. Ashton Kutcher will fill in for Sheen.
CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler wouldn't reveal details of the funeral, but did say earlier this week at TCA that "programming standards and practices team is already on high alert.”
Kutcher will be playing a broken-hearted Internet billionaire named Walden Schmidt. Chuck Lorre created the character.
At the first table read on Monday you could "cut the air with the knife," Tassler said, referring to the pressure on the cast to continue the ratings of the show, and the adjustment with a new star.
As for Sheen, "I have no idea [whether Sheen can turn the corner with new Lionsgate project, Anger Management]. I know that he's moved on and ... his slate is full and he's a very busy man," Tassler said.
