“Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher dropped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday where he was giddily coy about the series finale of CBS’s long-running “Two and a Half Men.” He revealed that though they hadn’t shot it yet, he knew how the show was going to end.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it,” he said. “I’m scared. Yeah, I’m a little terrified.”
DeGeneres wasn’t scared at all, asking pointedly if Charlie Sheen was coming back. Kutcher’s mouth hung open and his arms flailed about, but no words came out for a few moments. Finally, he said, “If you’re working on the Warner Bros. lot, if there’s sirens, come save me.”
“So Charlie comes back,” DeGeneres concluded. Kutcher vehemently denied saying anything, but he gave a sheepish grin and giggle, indicating he may well have said everything.
Sheen was famously fired from the show in March 2011 for his off-screen antics, and his character was subsequently killed off.
The character of Charlie Harper has already returned once from beyond the grave, appearing to Jon Cryer’s Alan Harper in the form of Kathy Bates.
“Two and a Half Men” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. The series finale is set for Feb. 19, 2015.
