The series parted ways with its lead actor in 2011 in a dispute: Sheen fell out with creator Chuck Lorre, among others. Twelve years later, they are working together again for the Bookie series. In a new Variety article, Lorre reveals details about Sheen’s role for the first time. The character looks a lot like Charlie Harper from Two and a Half Men in some ways – but the star changed one detail for good reason.
