(LOS ANGELES) — Charlie Sheen will tune into Two and a Half Men when the show resurrects his deceased character in the form of a ghost, to be played by Kathy Bates.
It was reported earlier this week that Bates will play the ghost of Charlie Harper, which visits Charlie’s brother, Jon Cryer’s Alan, in the hospital after the latter suffers a heart attack. Charlie was killed off the show early this season due to Sheen’s firing.
According to TMZ.com, Sheen is “honored” that Bates is taking on the role because he has great respect for her as an actress. Sources tell the website Sheen will watch her performance on the show.
