“I know a lot of you might be disappointed that you didn’t get to see Charlie Sheen in tonight’s finale. For the record he was offered a role."

Chuck Lorre has spoken out about last night’s series finale of his long running hit comedy “Two and a Half Men.” People were certainly not surprised to see that Charlie Sheen did not return to the show, while just about everyone else who had been on it over its 12 seasons did make an appearance.

The brains behind hit sitcoms such as “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike and Molly” was born Charles Michael Levine on Long Island. Lorre changed his family name because his mother never liked his father’s family and turned the very name Levine into an insult.

In case you recorded the show and have not yet had a chance to see it, don’t worry there will be no spoilers here, other than Sheen’s no show. Obviously no one could have honestly expected an appearance by Sheen who had been so vile to Chuck Lorre. Besides, it could never have been kept a secret until last night.

Lorre himself explained to viewers, “I know a lot of you might be disappointed that you didn’t get to see Charlie Sheen in tonight’s finale. For the record he was offered a role. Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, ring the doorbell, then turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse.”

“He would then explain that these dangers only apply to average people. That he was far from average. He was a ninja warrior from Mars. He was invincible. And then we would drop a piano on him. We thought it was funny. He didn’t. Instead, he wanted us to write a heart-warming scene that would set up his return to primetime TV in a new sitcom called The Harpers starring him and Jon Cryer. We thought that was funny, too.”

Sheen had earlier tweeted, “Attention World: If you’re looking for my much anticipated cameo on network TV, you’ll have to check out “The Goldbergs”

Lorre told Entertainment Weekly that even if Sheen had agreed to appear on the episode that the story would have been the same. “This was a storyline we were excited about doing for a long time. One thing had nothing to do with another. Several months ago, I could feel there was a palpable amount of pent-up desire to see Charlie, to have closure in the finale. We reached out to him four, five weeks ago.”
