But he’s not talking to Charlie Sheen.
“I have never talked to Charlie since that all went down,” he says of the very public feud in 2011 that led to Sheen being fired from TWO AND A HALF MEN.
“We have never talked again.”
MEN is TV’s longest-running sitcom.
Now as it comes time to wrap up its 12th and final season, Lorre says his biggest challenge is how to acknowledge Sheen’s contributions, while at the same time paying homage to the four seasons where the show was led by Ashton Kutcher.
He refuses to answer direct questions about the finale (or whether Sheen would return).
But TV’s most powerful comedy producer tells me: “There was a lot of great times these last four years. And there were a lot of great times the first eight. That needs to be said. We had a blast. We are very proud of what we did here with Charlie.”
“There are no wounds. What happened happened and I am really grateful for the time we enjoyed working together and I am very, very grateful that Ashton came along and kept the lights on. What do I have to complain about?”

The TWO AND A HALF MEN finale will feature “a great number” of guest appearances, Lorre hinted.
“The last scene will be done on a closed set with a small crew. I will tell you that.”
The finale of TWO AND A HALF MEN airs February 19 on CBS.
