After being a front-runner to replace Charlie Sheen’s role in ‘Two And A Half Men’, Rob Lowe will remain focused on playing his part in ‘Parks and Recreation’.
Parks and Recreation executive producer Michael Schur was adamant that Rob could not take on the Men role, explaining during the Parks panel at Paley Fest, via The Hollywood Reporter, that the actor had a “multi-year contract” to remain on the comedy.
“It’s going to be hard,” Schur quipped about how Rob would take on both shows, adding “there’s no truth” to the rumors.
“The Internet lit a match and set itself on fire,” he said.
Rob wasn’t part of the panel because he was”looking at colleges with” his kids, Schur said, followed by another joke that he would have to now replace Scott Caan on CBS’Hawaii Five-0, another actor whose name was thrown into the Charlie replacement rumor mill.
In case you didn’t know, Rob and John Stamos were the front-runners rumored to replace Charlie on CBS’ ‘Two And A Half Men’.
