Hugh Grant has been weighing a big move: replacing the fired Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men

Hugh Grant has been weighing a big move - replacing the fired Charlie Sheen on Two And A Half Men.

A person familiar with the situation said the British film actor was in negotiations to join the sitcom as its new leading man. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because producer Warner Bros and CBS hadn't authorised public comment, said the talks had stalled without resolution.

But it was unclear whether Hugh's hiring was a closed issue, the person said. Reports that he had been offered one million dollars an episode were inaccurate, the person said, adding any Sheen replacement would be paid less than that.

Sheen was among TV's highest-paid actors at a reported 1.8 million dollars an episode.

Hugh's publicist did not immediately return a call for comment.

The Grant/Two And A Half Men negotiations were first reported by the Deadline Hollywood website.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

There is a chance you will be dissatisfied with some of the results. That's because you've just started this journey. You will get better and better with practice.More
