Charlie Sheen’s departure from “Two and a Half Men” was not pretty. He was fired after feuding with the show’s creator Chuck Lorre and when he left the successful sitcom Sheen called Lorre among other things a “little worm.” He was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

But now rumors are swirling that Sheen may return for the final episode.

RadarOnline reports that at a press conference this week Lorre was surprisingly effusive when talking about Sheen, who was the highest paid actor on TV for his role as a lothario playboy.

“It would be inappropriate not to acknowledge our success with Charlie and how grateful I am and we are,” he said. “I have nothing but good feelings for those eight-and-a-half years.”

“The show has morphed into something else entirely for the last four years to something we love,” Lorre said. “How to honor both is the challenge of this finale, and the other challenge [is] how to get people to watch it without telling them what it is.

“I think you will be very, very pleased with the finale and that’s all I’m going to say about it,” he said.

This comes after the 49-year-old actor said in December that his dream, “is to be in the last scene of the last show” and to guest star “for the fans.”
