It's hard to believe it's been almost two years since Two and a Half Men went off the air. After 12 very successful seasons, fans of the comedy hit were treated to a decent, if not strange, series finale and were forced to say goodbye forever. There was a lot to like about the show and a lot of controversy surrounding it that made for good conversation around the water cooler. Charlie Sheen, the show's clear-cut star, had left in 2011 with a lot of rage and a lot of oddball talk. Chuck Lorre, the show's creator, was also quite vocal about Sheen's departure or dismissal or both, and he seemed to hold onto a grudge until the bitter end, milking the laughs at Sheen's expense to the very last second of the show. Angus T. Jones had his own public meltdown and criticized the show that made him the highest-paid child actor in history. Yet, the show and its viewers still trudged on. It introduced Ashton Kutcher as the new star/co-star in season 9, and kept afloat for 4 more seasons, a feat that no one thought was possible.
Amidst all the hype, public battles and fanfare, it was easy to find yourself inundated with everything you could ever want to know about the show and then some. Even today, as the show starts to fade a little more from memory, there is little that the fanbase doesn't already know. But they don't know everything. In the time since the show has gone off the air, some new information has come to light. Memoirs have been written and the stars have spoken out. There are also some connections that not all fans were able to make while the show was on the air. We want to bring you back down memory lane a little and look at some neat things that you haven't heard about the one-time most popular show on television. Here are 15 things you didn't know about Two and a Half Men.
15 Angus T. Jones Misses Acting
14 John Cryer is Nearly Bald
13 Blythe Danner Was The Mom
12 Hugh Grant Was Meant To Replace Charlie Sheen
11 Hot Shots! Reunion
10 Cryer Chose Alan Instead Of Battlestar Galactica
9 Jenny McCarthy Was Critical Of Sheen's HIV Handling
8 Berta Was Meant To Be Foreign and Not Permanent
7 Jon Cryer's Messed Up Ex-Wife
6 Sheen Threatened Kutcher
5 Sheen's Attempted Threesome With Cryer's Girlfriend
4 Angus T. Jones' Criminal Family
3 Demi And The Boys
2 The Proposed Ending
1 Charlie Sheen And The Harpers
In the same post-credit write-up, Lorre also explained that Sheen had approached them about taking him back to start up another show. Instead of agreeing to be crushed by a piano after his weird rant, Sheen suggested that they give him a nice send-off, showing that they had essentially kissed and made up. They would then introduce the idea of another show called The Harpers, which would focus on Alan and Charlie's life. Lorre obviously turned this down as well, no surprise considering how the finale was basically one long Charlie Sheen insult. While there's no doubt that Sheen went off the deep-end with his antics and leaving the show, it seems like Lorre is the one who can't seem to move on.
