UPDATE: Is Charlie Sheen Returning to Two and a Half Men?
Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment, has opened up about the final season of Two and a Half Men.
Walden, played by Ashton Kutcher, will experience a health scare that becomes an existential crisis, eventually leading to his decision to adopt a child. “He starts the process and realizes that it’s very difficult to adopt a child as a single, straight man,” Tassler reveals, “So once and for all he decides, ‘I’m going to propose to Alan [Jon Cryer] and we’re going to get married and adopt a child as a gay couple.'” (The Hollywood Reporter Interview)
The story of gay adoption in the final season of Two and a Half Men is viewed by its executives as a “very positive statement” and they are not anticipating any sort of blowback from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. He’s going to “adopt a child as [part of] a gay couple and that reality is, he can do that,” Tassler told THR, “And in a universe where at one point you couldn’t do that and now you can do that, I think that’s a much more positive statement that he’s making.”
With the focus to this story line, Tassler has also confirmed that the network is not having conversations with Charlie Sheen in regards to returning to Two and a Half Men. The final season will focus on gay adoption, and potentially marriage, and the affect it will have on Walden, Alan, and , Jenny (Amber Tamblyn, Charlie’s long-lost, lesbian daughter.
So, it appears as though Walden and Alan will not actually be a homosexual couple, only pretend to be one so as to start a family. What are your thoughts on the matter?
