Dear Chuck Lorre: Kevin Sorbo should replace Charlie Sheen!

You can’t go anywhere in cyberspace these days without reading about Charlie Sheen and his now former stint on CBS’ hit sitcom, “Two and a Half Men.” Equally popular is the speculation about his replacement.

Still, I have yet to see the obvious choice: Kevin Sorbo.

Here’s why Kevin Sorbo should be on “Two and a Half Men”:

1. He starred in two back-to-back hit syndicated television shows: “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” (7 years) and “Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda” (5 years).

2. He has remained a continuous working actor for over 20 years on television and in movies.

3. He already appeared in Chuck Lorre’s “Two and a Half Men” as Andy in the episode, “Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Burro” (2006).

4. He guest-starred in TV hits like “Cybill” (created by Lorre), “Just Shoot Me,” “According to Jim,” “Hope and Faith,” “The Middleman,” “Psych,” and had recurring appearances in “Dharma and Greg” (created by Lorre) and “The OC.” He also appeared in the season one finale of the hit comedy series, “Gary, Unmarried.”

5. He possesses the ability to meld into any role, being equally comfortable with comedy and drama.

6. He creates believable, human characters.

7. His comedic timing is impeccable, as is his natural charm.

8. He’s easy to work with according to directors, writers, cast, and crew.

9. He allows costars to shine in their respective roles.

10. He’s an excellent role model, supporting numerous charities and helping people whenever he can.

11. He’s a stable family man with a loving wife and three beautiful kids whom he adores.

12. He loves his fans and is always courteous, polite, and obliging.

13. He recently won Movieguide’s Grace Award for “Most Inspiring Performance in Movies in 2010” for his spectacular portrayal of Ben Walker in the film, What If…

14. He’s an all-around cool guy who would enhance this show with laughter, fun, and a strong screen presence.

15. He’s still a hot babe who continues to attract fans worldwide!

    You’re right. I think Kevin is suitable for this serial.

    Jan, I think it´s a good idea, for Mr. Lorre could think of Kevin for his next sitcom!
    Otherwise, I´d love to see Kevin on the bed like Charlie used to be…
    Count on me, darling!

    Jan, I know that you and all of Kevin Sorbo’s fans want to see him regularly on television but I also know that (or at least I think) Kevin has never won an award for any roles that he portrayed other than the inspirational role and I also remember what Kevin said when Hannelore was OEKSFC president that Kevin was getting all these clergy roles and he said this “Is God trying to tell me something”, you add all this together.

    I know that many of you want to see him in everything cause that is how I felt but I also know that if he were given the opportunity to take this offer would he be able to take time off to play a part that in his heart could be the greatest role ever for him?

    We have to put his desires above our own and just send positive energies that his talent will guide producers/directors/writers to call upon him as a man of talent not just because his fans want to see him in something on a weekly basis.

    Two And A Half Men has too much negativity to that show personally I believe that the show should be retired but I do not see that much difference in the character of Wolf Canyon verses the one Charlie Sheen had wouldn’t it be more productive to help promote Wolf Canyon here in the states instead? Thank You! 🙂

    Some very excellent points, Sandi, my dear friend. But, What If… God is pointing him in this direction? What If… he could turn this show around from the negativity you mention? What If… he were to get this part and boost its ratings, which I believe he could, and bring attention to the wonderful causes he supports?

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree that we should honor what’s in his heart, and respect everything that he chooses to do. And also pray that those in power recognize his many talents as we do.

    I personally think that this would be an excellent venue to showcase his many talents and show the world what we, his fans, already know: that Kevin is a fine, versatile actor with as yet untapped skills for which the world is waiting.

    Jan I appreciate what you said but did Kevin ask you to write this post, requesting his fans to write to the producer? Does Kevin really want to do this? If so I apologize! But lets not forget the lawsuit Charlie Sheen is bring against the producer. 100 million dollar lawsuit. I’m just bring issues to the table that’s all!

    Hi, Sandi, no, Kevin didn’t ask me to write this, but he is aware of it. The post is all mine… Muwahhh! 🙂

    Good point about that lawsuit. A bit excessive, don’t you think? What an egomaniac! Too bad… I liked him before, but now, meh… not so much.

    No need to apologize. You made some really good points, as always. You have so many great ideas. Please don’t think I was being critical. I agree with you. I think he would do this if asked, though. It’s a steady paycheck and great exposure. Perhaps he wouldn’t need to travel so much and could stay home with the family more. I’m just guessing here…

      “Please don’t think I was being critical” we both brought out the issues everything is fine 🙂 Don’t worry about it!

    While I respect all sides in this discussion, I feel that Kevin can do better than revisiting “Two and a Half Men.”

    “Bobby Cannon” & “Wolf Canyon” are two sitcom pilots that have already been produced. A little updating could make either of them worth a second look.

    As Kevin mentioned in past interviews, “Bobby Cannon” was well received by test audiences & was the brainchild of Barry Kemp, responsible for memorable sitcoms like “Newhart” & “Coach.” The suits at ABC passed on it in favor of pilots that ended up as cancelled series. While “Bobby Cannon” might still work on broadcast TV, I think basic cable would be a better avenue for such a show.

    “Wolf Canyon” would probably end up on basic cable, even if it was tweaked for a TV-MA audience. Granted, it has already aired on a speciality channel in Canada but never picked up as a regular series. The show’s premise and Kevin’s untypical character of Rick Dunham is interesting enough to give it a shot. The only item that might have to be tweaked for US audiences is the native reservation; whether a Native American setting could work for this show.

    If I had to pick between “Bobby Cannon” and “Wolf Canyon,” I’d rather see the latter. However, “Legendary” is still in the works and I’m interested in seeing how Kevin does spoofing himself.
