After he was famously fired from the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men in 2011, Charlie Sheen is eager to bid a proper farewell to the show when it finishes its long run this season.
According to the star, he's reached out to both CBS and executive producer Chuck Lorre about coming back, and they've responded. "We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense," Charlie explained in a recent interview.
"If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."
The 49-year-old thinks the return of his character Charlie Harper would mean "good will and a tip of the hat to the fans," many of whom have stuck by the series since its premiere in 2003.
At the time of his departure (Ashton Kutcher replaced him the following season), the Wall Street actor did not go quietly, filing a $100 million lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros. Television, which was ultimately dismissed.
When asked whether he and the showrunner have mended fences, Charlie told TV Guide, "Ethereally we have, personally we have not."
The Emmy nominee added, "But I'm easy to grab. He was doing his job, I was doing mine. At the end of the day, the guy's a genius. Look at what he does. I don't have to spend time with him anymore for him to be brilliant. I wish him nothing but the best."
It's still unclear whether Angus T. Jones, who represented the "half" in the show's title, will return after quitting the series in 2013 and infamously denouncing it as "filth."
The season 12 premiere is set to air on Oct. 30. To read the rest of Charlie's interview, head over to TV Guide.
