Harry’s Law attorney Kathy Bates will jump to CBS for one night only when she guest stars in the April 30 episode of Men as the ghost of Charlie Harper.
In the episode, Alan (Jon Cryer) suffers a minor heart attack and Charlie’s spirit (taking the form of Bates) pays him a visit at the hospital.
Fun fact: Both Harry’s Law and Two and a Half Men are produced by Warner Bros.
It all goes down in the April 30 episode of Two and a Half Men. Alan (Jon Cryer) will have a heart attack and he will have a ghostly vision of his brother, only he’ll be played by Bates.
This is very strange and confusing for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that Sheen and Bates aren’t the same gender. It’s also weird because Bates is currently starring on Harry’s Law, a TV show on a rival network.
Two and a Half Men is one of the few CBS shows not yet renewed for a new season, due largely to ongoing contract negotiations with star Ashton Kutcher. So really, this is one big publicity stunt desined to pullin viewers like me who don’t usually watch the show. Still, I admit to being at least a little bit interested about how they will pull this off.
The Kathy-Bates-as-Charlie-Harper episode of Two and a Half Men airs Monday, April 30 at 9pm on CBS.
