Hugh Grant was Set to Replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men: A Mad Libs of Whaaaaaa?

I…just…he…do what now?

According to Deadline, Hugh Grant was set to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, but pulled out at the last minute, like Sheen used to do with the hookers in his more alert days.

Let’s take a look at the various angles this post could select:

- There’s the “Hugh Grant has stooped to replacing Charlie goddamn Sheen as a viable career option?” angle

- There’s the “Where exactly does Hugh Grant fit into the story about Jon Cryer and his giant son living with his loser brother?” angle

- There’s the “At least they have a love of the prosties in common” angle

- There’s the “I stab myself in the side of the head with my ‘Why Alec Baldwin is so cool’ blogger pencil because I feel as though I’ve stared into the blackness and can no longer feel feelings” angle

I choose positivity. I choose the “Hell, at least Duckie almost got to keep his job” angle. But, sadly, not entirely unlike with Andie, Duckie lost out in the end. But we, the people, are the winners victors (I can’t say the ‘w’ words. It’s just what he wants us to do.)

Seriously though. Hugh Grant.

1. Hugh Grant
2. Pandery, lowest common denominator sitcom
3. Part originated by Charlie Sheen portraying himself
4. Giant teen’s terrifying nightmare opening credits morph, a la latter-day Roseanne
5. Hugh Grant

I understand nothing. I literally cannot picture this strange new sitcom.

Luckily, I will not have to. Huzzah!
