The warlock is dead. Or at least, his alter ego is. Deadline.com is reporting that the upcoming ninth season of Two and a Half Men will begin with the funeral for Charlie Sheen's character, Charlie Harper. That news, if true, confirms earlier rumors that show creator -- and chief warlock nemesis -- Chuck Lorre is making a clean break from his former star by killing off his womanizing character, reportedly in a car crash that happens off-camera. Further word is that Lorre is reaching out to real-life celebs to play prospective buyers for Harper's mansion, which goes up for sale in the premiere episode of the season, which Deadline reports is a two-parter. As previously announced, Ashton Kutcher is joining the CBS sitcom in Sheen's absence. The new season reportedly goes into production next week.
