Two and a Half Men Reboot: Is Sheen still winning?

It seems Men will likely have a reboot mid-season in the fall and Jon Cryer will have a more significant role on the beloved show. It also seems there will be an addition of a new character that would replace Sheen's womanizing, often drunk, yet lovable character. I'm not sure anyone else could play that role as well as Sheen did. After all, wasn't Sheen just playing himself?
The actor for this possible new character could be earning as much as $1-million an episode and since this is the hottest role in Hollywood right now, everyone who is anyone is on the list to be Sheen's replacement: Bob Saget, Jeremy Piven and John Stamos are all possibly being considered to join the Men cast.
CBS's upfront presentation for ad buyers is coming up right around the corner at the beginning of May where the final plans for the reboot should be revealed.
All I can say is good luck to any and all involved in this project, Sheen is not done winning and I doubt he plans on slowing down his "torpedo of truth" anytime soon. Defeat is definitely not an option in Sheen's eyes.

As Charlie Sheen continues his tornado of a comedy tour, "Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option," Chuck Lorre, CBS and Warner Bros. are working on what is next for Two and a Half Men. Sheen has made it very public that he wants to be back with Men (no pun intended) but Lorre and Warner seems to want nothing to do with him and insist his firing back in March will stick. So what will happen to the sitcom? Will it return for an eighth season? Keep reading after the jump to find out!
